Queen guitarist Brian May wants you to know that his friend, Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi, is in "great spirits," despite his recent lymphoma diagnosis. May writes on BrianMay.com that he spent time with Iommi last week and that they "had a lot of fun playing with stuff and listening to music -- we even made some plans...got some ideas, laughed a lot... Good medicine for both of us... He will go into battle very strong in spirit and with the knowledge that, all around the world, his appreciators are with him." May also posted photos of his visit with Iommi on his website.
Iommi is being treated in his hometown of Birmingham, England, where he and the rest of the original members of Sabbath are working on their first studio album in 33 years.
