Black Sabbath Reunion With Bill Ward Looks Unlikely: Black Sabbath News


.
On Tuesday Black Sabbath Reunion With Bill Ward Looks Unlikely was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Tony Iommi has offered the strongest hint yet that Bill Ward won't be part of Black Sabbath's upcoming farewell tour but he also says that a final album from the group "could happen".

The drummer dropped out of the band's 2011 reunion and subsequent album, saying he hadn't been offered a "signable" contract. The disagreement later exploded into a war of words between him and frontman Ozzy Osbourne.

Sabbath recorded 2013 album 13 with Rage Against The Machine sticksman Brad Wilk, then toured with Tommy Clufetos behind the kit. And although Iommi and Ward caught up at a recent awards ceremony, the guitarist says an original lineup reunion is unlikely as they work towards their last-ever tour.

Asked if Ward will play with Sabbath again, Iommi tells Gigwise: "No, to be honest. I don't know if that's going to happen. But who knows? You never know."

Sabbath's plans may or may not include a final album. "We've got some tracks we recorded with Rick Rubin," says the guitarist. "When we did our last album we made 16 tracks, but we only put eight on the album. There are tracks there that could possibly show their face at some point." He also discussed their final tour plans.
