Bill Ward Slams Black Sabbath's 13 Album

(Classic Rock) Bill Ward has described Black Sabbath's latest album 13 as "a pile of sh*t." The estranged Sabbath drummer didn't play on the 2013 record, having failed to agree on the contract he was offered. Frontman Ozzy Osbourne, however, blamed Ward's absence on the sticksman's health issues. Rage Against The Machine's Brad Wilk was behind the kit for the album.

Ward says he had to distance himself from the band after the fallout, with one tactic being to totally dismiss the album that was created without him. Ward - who remains locked in a war of words with Osbourne - tells the Eddie Trunk Podcast (via Blabbermouth): "I wasn't interested in the f***ing album 13. I've heard 20 bars of it - that's all I've heard - and then I turned it off and said, 'That's a pile of sh*t,' and that's the truth.

"I wanted to make sure that I went down the line and detached myself as much as possible. I had to stop loving them, because if you're loving a dog as it's biting you and ripping your insides out, it's hard to love a dog that's doing that." Read more here.
