Finally, we have a piece of good news from the Black Sabbath camp.
Legendary frontman Ozzy Osbourne wants to play one final Sabbath gig with Bill Ward.
In a recent interview with U.K.’s Kerrang! magazine, he said:
“I didn’t like the fact that Bill Ward wasn’t there, for a start. People put that down to me, but it wasn’t me, honestly. We [SABBATH] didn’t have the f*c*ing time to hang around, we had to get going, but I’m sorry it didn’t work out with Bill. Tommy [Clufetos, Ozzy‘s drummer, who played with SABBATH on the farewell tour] did great, but the four of us started this, and it should have been the four of us end it. Those final gigs in Birmingham were bittersweet because you think of how far we came, and how much we did, and it would have been good to have shared that together. Maybe one day there’ll be one last gig, I don’t know.”
Ozzy further said:
“Yeah, it was a bit difficult at times, but we’re all older men now, and we got on with it. It’s not ‘Ozzy Osbourne and BLACK SABBATH,’ it’s BLACK SABBATH, and I’m just one-quarter of that. Sometimes it feels like people want me to be less ‘Ozzy‘ at times, but I can only be myself.”
