Tony Iommi Explains Hurdles To Black Sabbath Reunion

(Gibson) Although millions of fans are anxious at the idea of Black Sabbath's original four members reuniting, guitarist Tony Iommi said it won't be terribly easy getting the boys back together.

"The band can decide to do something, but there are a lot of people involved, and everybody's got individual managers," Iommi told Rolling Stone. "It's not as easy as like it was in the old days � us all going in one room and it all works. I mean, we can certainly do that, but it's a bit more involved than that."

But, the riff master did say that all four members � Iommi, Ozzy Osbourne, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward � are on good terms. "I talk to Ozzy a lot � we've always been in contact. And I talk to Bill occasionally," he said. "Geez, I played with him until Ronnie [James Dio] passed away. We still stay in contact. Geezer is not one for being on the phone, we normally e-mail. We all get on well � I don't think there's any bad vibes or anything." more on this story
