As many people will be aware, the position of Drummer for the upcoming Black Sabbath reunion shows has been an uncertainty hanging over the band and their fans for quite some time now. Original drummer Bill Ward has been in “on – off” negotiations with the rest of the band and more specifically the management over his involvement for some considerable time.
Earlier this evening (15th of May) Bill posted an in-depth update on his official website, which we at Rocksins would encourage all Sabbath fans to read. You can do so on the link below:
Needless to say it is very sad for all Black Sabbath fans and for the man himself that Bill won’t be participating in the shows currently announced, especially in the band’s hometown of Birmingham and at Download. Who will be behind the drum kit as a result of this announcement has not yet been confirmed either. More on this breaking news as it becomes available here at Rocksins.com.
