Iommi Addresses Black Sabbath Reunion Reports

(Rock News Desk) Tony Iommi states he has not confirmed any Black Sabbath reunion and he's taken a swipe at a journalist who made it sound like he'd made the situation official. The guitarist has apologised to bandmates Ozzy Osbourne, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward after the "absolute nonsense" story exploded round the world.

Yesterday the Birmingham Mail published an article written by 25-year veteran reporter Andy Coleman quoting a conversation he'd had with Iommi in June, although the context made it seem as if it was a more recent talk. The result made it sound like confirmation the axeman had regrouped with Osbourne, Butler and Ward, as previously reported by MetalTalk.

In a real official statement Iommi says: "I'm saddened that a Birmingham journalist whom I trusted has chosen this point in time to take a conversation we had back in June and make it sound like we spoke yesterday about a Black Sabbath reunion." more on this story
