Bill Ward Holds Out Black Sabbath Hope

(Classic Rock) Estranged Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward says he'd like to play a part in the band's future, if it's likely to be a long run.

Despite bowing out of their heralded reunion after failing to reach a contractual agreement with Sabbath's managers, he says he loves playing with Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Terry 'Geezer' Butler as much as he did when they formed in 1969.

In the first of a six-part online TV show presented by Eagles of Death Metal frontman Jess Hughes, Ward says: "There have been some very uncomfortable situations in the last six months. We'll see how that works out. But I stand for myself today, as much as I love them.

"I'll always play � that's my life. If there's some longevity with Black Sabbath, then I'd like to be a part of it."
