Bill Ward's Son Addresses Black Sabbath Reunion Controversy

(hennemusic) The Black Sabbath reunion recently hit a snag when drummer Bill Ward went public to advise fans that he had been presented with an agreement that he did not feel comfortable signing, while also disrespecting his role as one of the founders of the legendary metal pioneers.

Ozzy, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler responded with their own statement, saying "we have no choice but to continue recording without him although our door is always open." Now, Ward's son, Aron, has posted a lengthy Facebook message responding to rumors and speculation that his father has done something wrong, or that he's simply "greedy" because he received a contract that, in good faith and conscience, he could neither sign or live with.

"My dad hasn't 'declined' playing with Black Sabbath or 'threatened' to pull out of this reunion. As he stated, his bags are packed and he's ready to go. He says it loud and clear, he definitely wants to play on the album and he definitely wants to tour.

"Up 'till about three weeks ago, he was working extremely hard and close with the other three on this album/reunion tour. He was in very good spirits and sounded excited to be writing with Tony, Geezer and Ozzy again.

"'Don't be so greedy': he is by no means greedy, man. If he was, he would have settled with whatever contract given him. It's kind of obvious someone else is greedy. Wake up." More from Aron here.
