(Classic Rock) Ozzy Osbourne hasn't completely given up on the chance of Bill Ward returning for Black Sabbath's final show - even though the drummer himself has ruled it out.

The pair became embroiled in a war of words following Ward's departure from the band's reunion in 2012, and he later accused the vocalist of having created an "impassable dilemma."

Black Sabbath are currently on their farewell world tour with Tommy Clufetos behind the drumkit. The road trip ends with two dates in their home city of Birmingham, UK, in February.

Earlier this month Ward said it was "incorrect" to suggest he'd make a return. Ozzy tells Rolling Stone: "Right now I'm having a blast. I suppose I may have a different head on when we do the last show. I used to resent going out on the road, but now it's fun. Nobody gets stoned, nobody gets drunk. We've been doing some great shows."

He continues: "I'm sad that Bill never came through. Every time I reach out to Bill I get yelled at for something." Asked whether Ward will make an appearance in Birmingham, he says: "I don't know. If something can be worked out, great. Tommy is doing a great job." Read more here.
