Big news from Bill Ward.
In a new interview with U.K.’s Metro, Bill said he wants to write & record one final Black Sabbath album with the classic lineup.
Here’s what he said:
“I talked to Ozzy [Osbourne, SABBATH singer] 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, SABBATH guitarist] since 1964 when I was 16 years old. They’re my brothers and I love them.”
As for the possibility of him reuniting with SABBATH again at some point in the near future, Ward said:
“As far as I’m concerned, the book’s never closed with SABBATH. I’m writing like a demon, I’m living life.
“My biggest contention has been, ‘Let’s make another album.”
“Nothing live necessarily, because I’m looking at what I can realistically do. The way I play the drums, it’s becoming tougher as I get older. 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.”
