Black Sabbath – Truth Coming Out?

When Bill Ward announced that he would not be part of the Black Sabbath reunion he said it had to do with the contract he was offered. At the time, Ozzy, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler would only say that they did not know what the problem was and that they wished he were with them. But lately it seems as though the truth is coming out. Ozzy recently said that Ward is “incredibly overweight” and in no shape to tour. Ward denied that, saying he would “never, ever show up for a commitment that I could not do physically . . . I’m the drummer in Sabbath and quite capable of doing the job.” And now Butler has added fuel to the fire, saying, “If Bill felt up to it, and played like he used to be able to play, we’d have welcomed him with open arms. But you have to maintain a certain standard. You can’t go on with someone not up to standard, no matter who they are.”

Ward’s role on the new album, 13, was filled by Brad Wilk of Rage Against the Machine, while Ozzy’s drummer, Tommy Clufetos, is filling in on the road. Sabbath is in Mountain View, California Monday night.
