Legendary BLACK SABBATH guitarist Tony Iommi has issued the following New Year's update:
"Best wishes for the new year, after a such a brilliant 2013, it's going to be difficult to match it this year but we’ll be having a go.
I’d like the thank everyone who helped make the last year such a success, Ozzy and Geezer, the band’s management, Rick, Mike E and those who helped make the recording so good, the unseen work by our record label, the promotions team, my websites (Tracy, Joe & Bryce) and all of our touring crew, especially Mick and Kat who work with me personally.
We’ve some good things lined up for the coming year, firstly the Grammy’s, then some dates in the US and Canada, and in the summer a quick trip round Europe. I should also be finishing my regular treatment and I’m hoping to not get so tired, all positive.
Many thanks to you all for your continued support, we’d be nothing without you."
