It was just two months ago that Black Sabbath announced plans to produce another studio album – their first in 33 years.
But in the midst of recording sessions in Los Angeles, the heavy metal foursome had some serious news for fans this week: Guitar legend Tony Iommi has been diagnosed with lymphoma.
The Iron Man is in the "early stages" of the disease, a cancer of the lymphocytes (white blood cells in the immune system), according to a statement on his website, and the band will continue working on the album (still set to be released in the fall) in England to accommodate Iommi.

Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne's new dog, Charlie, isn't the only one who benefited from the modest sum of $10,000 that the couple paid for him at an auction last month. Holly Robinson Peete's HollyRod Foundation, which helps families coping with autism and Parkinson's disease, also got a boost from the charitable purchase.
"Let me tell you something, that was one of the best moments of our event," Robinson Peete told PEOPLE at Wednesday's 11th Annual Harold Pump Foundation Gala in Los Angeles. "The fact that [Ozzy] even showed up was amazing, and I didn't even even expect him to stay that long. But he enjoyed himself, he had a good time, and when he bought the dog it was just such a great moment."

Ozzy Osbourne hasn't lost his bite.
The rocker and his wife Sharon stepped out in Beverly Hills on July 23 to support Sharon's The Talk co-host Holly Robinson Peete at the 13th Annual Design Care, an event that benefits Robinson Peete's HollyRod Foundation. The evening, which featured a live auction and helps families coping with autism and Parkinson's disease, went raucously for the Osbournes, who started a bidding war for a Yorkshire terrier puppy – and won!

Ozzy Osbourne doesn't understand 3G or 4G or, should the day arrive, 6G – but Justin Bieber does, as the two showed in a Super Bowl commercial for Best Buy. Set in the future, the funny spot ended with Ozzy, wife Sharon at his side, asking, "What's a Bieber?"
As it was, this was quite a weekend for the 16-year-old pop sensation. On Saturday Night Live he all but stole the show away from host Dana Carvey, who was returning to the program after long absence. In a memorable moment, Carvey's Church Lady character came on to Bieber, who played it straight, with hysterical results.

Justin Bieber and an unlikely pal, Ozzy Osbourne, teamed up earlier this month to film a futuristic Super Bowl ad for Best Buy – and, so far, the details are top secret.
On Jan. 17, when the shoot took place, Bieber, 16, told his 7 million Twitter followers, "Can't really say what I'm up to today but when u guys find out its gonna be funny as heck," later adding, "#todaywasepic." Then on Wednesday, he spilled the beans a bit, admitting to filming a "pretty funny commercial" with Osbourne, 62.
For his part, the Prince of Darkness has kept his lips sealed, as has his wife, Sharon Osbourne, who was also present for the shoot. According to USA Today, the 30-second ad, which will air in the third quarter, is Best Buy's first-ever Super Bowl commercial – and from the looks of it, it's bound to leave an impression! – Kate Hogan

Ozzy Osbourne is known by fans as the Prince of Darkness – and, it turns out, the rocker has one wicked sense of humor too.
Watch as Osbourne, 61, hides out among the wax figures at the New York branch of Madame Tussauds. When unsuspecting fans sit down for a photo with what they believe to be the rocker's wax figure, he, well, comes to life.
With wife Sharon in on the fun, the rocker is so convincing as a still figure, he prompts one young girl who gets up close to remark, "He's got real hair on his arms. It feels real!"
Osbourne is readying his latest album, his eleventh, Scream, for release June 22.

Ozzy Osbourne's secret for staying married to Sharon Osbourne for 26 years: "Get a good crash helmet on my head," the heavy metal musician, 59, told PEOPLE on the red carpet at the Marshall Classic Rock Roll of Honor Awards in London Monday night.
"When she gets pissed off, I really go up in the air."
And while some reports are suggesting that daughter Kelly Osbourne, 24, and boyfriend Luke Worrell are headed for an engagement, Kelly's father is careful not to offer her any relationship advice, he told PEOPLE.
"She'll end up going, 'Dad shut up!' "
Osbourne was at the event to accept the Living Legend Award for his career as lead vocalist of Black Sabbath.
