(Classic Rock) Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi says one of the thing he misses about original drummer Bill Ward is the chance to play practical jokes on him. And he's recalled the time he painted his colleague gold, and another time he set him on fire.

Ward was originally set to take part in the band's reunion with Ozzy Osbourne, leading up to their final world tour, but failed to reach a contractual agreement.

Iommi tells the Guardian: "We were staying at John DuPont's house in Los Angeles, the bloke who owned DuPont paint products. We found all this paint in the garage, and we were all pissed, so we thought it would be fun to paint Bill gold from head to toe.

"He started having convulsions. The ambulance people gave us a right bollocking - 'You idiots, you could have killed him!' They gave him adrenalin and we had to use paint stripper to get it off. He looked like a beetroot by the end." Read more here.
