Bill Ward Calls for Original Black Sabbath Members to Record New Album

After being M.I.A. on Black Sabbath’s 2013 reunion album and subsequent tour, drummer Bill Ward is calling for one last in-studio reunion with his former bandmates.

“I’m in contact with the guys,” Ward says. “I talked to Ozzy [Osbourne] two nights ago. A lot of things have crossed between us and there’s new boundaries that I’ve had to build, but I don’t think any less of them. I’ve been working with Tony [Iommi] since 1964 when I was 16 years old. They’re my brothers and I love them.”

Ward says while he and the other former members of Black Sabbath aren’t healthy enough to withstand a tour, he feels collectively, they have one last great album in them. “I haven’t spoken to the guys about it, but I have talked to a couple of people in management about the possibility of making a recording. Which I can do safely, even with COVID around. I can lay track at my studio in Los Angeles. I’m very open-minded about doing something like that.”
