Former Black Sabbath Singer Hopes Bill Ward Returns

(Gibson) Tony Martin says he knows his former Black Sabbath bandmates love drummer Bill Ward, and he hopes they can come to an agreement which would see Ward return to the band for their in-progress reunion album.

In an interview with Born Music Online, Martin said he didn't understand the fuss over "this Bill Ward stuff. I spent 10 years with the band and not once did they speak badly of Bill Ward. They love him, so why didn't they go the extra yard to make it work?"

Martin released five albums with Black Sabbath, including a few which remain critically acclaimed (Headless Cross and Cross Purposes), and he shared the stage with three quarters of Sabbath's founding members when Ward joined Martin, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler for a 1994 South American tour. more on this story
