Tony Iommi's Cancer Is Still In Remission

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 16:00:01 -0500

Here's some good news. Toni Iommi of Black Sabbath currently has a pretty good bill of health. In 2012, he was diagnosed with cancer, and underwent treatment during the recording of the final Black Sabbath studio album, 13. About a year ago, he stated that he was in remission but still receiving regular check ups. Recently, Iommi told Guitar World that "healthwise, I seem to be all right for the moment. It's still in remission. I continue to have my regular checkup every six weeks, and it's a bit easier for me now that I'm not touring. The doctors were concerned about all the flying I was doing, because it isn't good for the blood. But I'm on top of it, and I'm eating the right things… although sometimes I still eat the wrong things." Black Sabbath recently released The End an album/documentary from the band's final show. 13 was released in 2013.

As reported by the Chicago tribune, that famous landmark made even more famous by Wesley Willis, Rock 'n' Roll McDonalds will soon be no more. The restaurant, which has been a landmark for decades and is well known for its unique Rock themed decor, will close December 30. It will open back up sometime in Spring 2018, but will no longer have its unique "Rock 'n' Roll" theme, and will, instead, just be another regular "modernized" McDonalds. You can work through your conflicting feelings by listening to Willis' tribute to the location below, as well as Jello Biafra's cover of the tune, below.
