After Tony Iommi announced that he was diagnosed with cancer the latest news from UK’s Black Sabbath is another downer, the band published yesterday via their facebook page:

“We were saddened to hear yesterday via Facebook that Bill declined publicly to participate in our current Black Sabbath plans…we have no choice but to continue recording without him although our door is always open… We are still in the UK with Tony. Writing and recording the new album and on a roll… See you at Download!!!
