Drummer Under the Blade

Things have been decidedly hellish for Heaven & Hell in recent weeks.  The band was hours from launching a European tour when Ronnie James Dio was hospitalized for what turned out to be early onset stomach cancer (story).  The singer is undergoing treatment at the Mayo Clinic.  Earlier, Tommy Iommi revealed that he had turned to stem cell treatments to address a hand injury that was bothering the guitarist. Monday (11/30) drummer Vinnie Appice will have shoulder surgery to repair damage he did to it during the band's last tour.  He has been told to expect five months of recovery and physical therapy before cutting loose behind the kit again.
