Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi Was Shocked Over Bill Ward Dispute

(hennemusic) Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi is sharing his thoughts on drummer Bill Ward's decision not to participate in the band's reunion album and tour.

"I was shocked," Iommi tells Guitar World in a new cover story interview, which also includes Ozzy Osbourne and Geezer Butler. "We were hearing stuff from lawyers, like, 'I'm not happy with this. I'm not happy with that.'

"We waited a long time for Bill and we wanted to sort it out. But at the end of the day, especially after I was diagnosed, I thought, F**king hell, that's it. We've got to get a move on. I might pop off next year! So I emailed him and said, 'Bill, we can't wait any longer. We've got to get on with it.' And that was it." more on this story
