Sabbath bloggy Sabbath
What in the name of satan's horns is going on with the much anticipated Black Sabbath reunion eh? For reasons best known to the band's management their drummer, Bill Ward, seems to have been sidelined due to 'contractual disagreements' and now isn't playing ANY of the forthcoming shows. His blog post seems to lay the blame fair and square at the team behind the band and, given that they seemingly wanted him to play the homecoming Birmingham show for FREE...almost on a trial basis, he has a fair point. Happily Tony Iommi seems to be match fit, but surely a Sabbath gig without Bill Ward ain't really, truly a Sabbath gig? Sort it out chaps...ego, money, squabbles...it really don't matter a hoot in the grand scheme of things. To quote the band themselves in Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, it'll all be a bit too late when "The gates of life have closed on you and there's just no return". Wise words.
