Tony Iommi gets stem cell treatment on hands

Iommi says injured hand on mend

Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi has said he is making a good recovery after receiving stem-cell treatment on an injured hand.

“It’s coming on alright actually,” the acclaimed guitarist told the BBC at the Classic Rock Awards on Monday.

“I’ve already had the stem-cell treatment, so I’ve just got to wait now. It’s been six weeks but it’s feeling great.”

Iommi had been in pain after problems with his right hand joints.

He told the BBC Radio 2 Radcliffe and Maconie Show in October that the cartilage had worn out between the joints.

“It was bone to bone and it was getting a bit painful,” he said. </em>
