The members of Black Sabbath revealed in a new interview with Rolling Stone that producer Rick Rubin originally suggested legendary Cream drummer Ginger Baker to play drums on their new album, since founding drummer Bill Ward was not participating.

Guitarist Tony Iommi said, “I thought, ‘Bloody hell? I just couldn’t see that.” Rubin’s second idea, Brad Wilk of Rage Against The Machine, ended up working out. Sabbath’s first disc in 35 years with Ozzy Osbourne on vocals, titled 13, is expected out in June.
