Bill Ward Says He Has Lost Ozzy As A Friend

(Classic Rock) Estranged Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward says he remains in contact with Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler - but believes he's lost the friendship of Ozzy Osbourne, and he's not sure how much he could trust the singer in future.

The band's drumstool is currently occupied by Tommy Clufetos after Ward bowed out of the original lineup reunion, saying he hadn't been offered a contract that was "signable." But he says he would still be up for a return - if he felt healthy enough.

Ward says there remains a "political agenda" attached to his non-appearance. He says: "I have to be careful in overstating. I've definitely got an open mind.

"I miss playing with Geezer, just horribly. I absolutely miss him to death. And I miss playing with Tony just, every day. Obviously I miss Oz. With Ozzy, I've lost a friend as far as I'm concerned. A man that I dearly loved, and I still dearly love - but I've had to re-adjust just how much I'm going to trust and love him." more on this story
