Original Black Sabbath drummer, Bill Ward, blasted out singer Ozzy Osbourne after he claimed that Bill is too fat to play with Black Sabbath and a proper drummer has to be in shape to play in a live show.
In a recent chat with ‘Eddie Trunk’s Trunk Nation, Ward commented:
“Well, I’m not done with Black Sabbath legacy I haven’t been done. I was made done, but I’m not done. So, the others might be done, but I’m not. But being realistic about that, as far as touring with Black Sabbath, I don’t have the chops, and I don’t have the ability to drive a band like that on stage. I have to be back to 60 years old to be able to do that.
“I would love to do a studio album with Sabbath, with all the original members. I’m just saying that — I’m just floating that out there. I haven’t talked to anybody about that or anything else. But I’m not done. So, the other three might be done, and I respect that, but no, I’m not done. I think as long as we all exist and we’re still breathing in air, I think we have every possibility of making some great music together.
”I’m being honest. I’ll be 73 next birthday, and I know what kind of energy it takes to drive that band.”
