(Classic Rock) Brad Wilk says it was a dream come true to appear on Black Sabbath's final album - but he still wishes Bill Ward had done it instead. Ward fell out with his bandmates over what he regarded as an "unsignable" contract, and the disagreement later disintegrated into a war of words, particularly between Ward and frontman Ozzy Osbourne.

Wilk took the drumstool for 2013 release 13, which was later confirmed to be the band's last word from the studio. He tells Alternative Nation: "I was a 14-year-old kid sitting in his room with a record player, trying to learn BIll Ward parts, and Black Sabbath is one of my favourite groups of all time.

"To be asked to play with them was an incredible experience. For the first week it was really hard to even deal with the fact that I was in a room with them, possibly heading towards making a record with them."

He describes working with Osbourne, guitarist Tony Iommi, bassist Geezer Butler and producer Rick Rubin as a positive experience, adding: "To say I was part of it was incredible." But he continues: "I wish it could have been Bill Ward instead of me - as amazing as it was for me." Read more here.
