Black Sabbath's Bill Ward Devastated By Loss Of Ozzy's Friendship

(TeamRock Radio) Former Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward has described how he went through a period of grief over the end of his friendship with singer Ozzy Osbourne.

The pair were involved in a public war of words earlier this month after Ward said he couldn't consider a return to the metal icons for their farewell tour unless Ozzy performed a "righting of wrongs" over allegations he'd made about the drummer's abilities.

The vocalist refused to entertain the suggestion and told the sticksman: "Stop playing the victim," leading to an apparent closure of the door on a reunion.

Now Ward has discussed a period in May last year, after he'd undergone shoulder surgery, when he made a public appearance in the US to launch his artwork series.

He tells Joel Gausten: "I was still in a lot of grief. I was grieving the loss of one of my best friends - Ozzy Osbourne. I missed him so much it was devastating to me. When I did the presentation of the paintings, there were some things I was describing and I know I was crying." Read more here.
