Black Sabbath Honoured At The Kerrang! Awards 2012; Video Posted

Black Sabbath were named the most inspirational band in rock on Thursday, June 7, at The Kerrang! Awards 2012 Fuelled By Relentless Energy Drink.

The reformed band - consisting of vocalist Ozzy Osbourne, guitarist Tony Iommi and bass player Geezer Butler - picked up the Inspiration Award at Kerrang! magazine's annual awards show at The Brewery in Barbican, London. 

A short video interview with Osbourne, Iommi and Butler conducted by Kerrang! right after tonight's awards show can be seen below.

Tony Iommi has revealed that he was undergoing chemotherapy treatment for cancer during the recording sessions for the band's new album.

Iommi, who was diagnosed with lymphoma late last year, told Kerrang! magazine, "It was good for me to do that. I did feel tired and sick - and it does make you sick, you start throwing up. But on the days when I felt I could do it, we were all there working."

Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler added, "[Tony] was going to the hospital one day, and we'd go into the studio the next depending on how the chemo was affecting him."
