Original Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward is no longer angry with his former bandmates

Original BLACK SABBATH drummer Bill Ward has in a new interview told Metal Hammer that he no longer resents his bandmates over the circumstances that led to him bowing out of the group’s reunion ten years ago. “I love you-know-what out of those guys,” he said. “I’ve come through the angry things that happened in 2012 and have come to a place where I’m at peace with myself and with them. I’m glad we did what we did and I often go down in the memory of the early work we did in Copenhagen and the Reeperbahn in Hamburg.I love the guys and all the imperfections that come with it.It’s a great feeling to have come as far as we are and I’m happy just to be able to write or talk to them if I want to. “

Bill was on board to SABBATH reunion when it was first announced more than 10 years ago, but soon withdrew. The drummer later claimed that he stopped recording and touring due to unfair contract terms, even though the members of SABBATH has indicated in other interviews that he was not physically ready for the task.

All four original members of SABBATH was present when the band announced its reunion in late 2011. But department split from the group in 2012 citing an “unsigned” contract and singer Ozzy Osbourne, guitarist Tony Iommi and bassist Geezer Butler continued with their Rick Rubin– produced “13” LP and extensive international tour without him.

March last year, Bill admitted to SiriusXM‘s “Trunk Nation with Eddie Trunk” that he no longer had the “chops” and “ability” to perform with BLACK SABBATH. “I have to be back to 60 years to be able to do that,” he said.

“I would love to make a studio album with SABBATH, with all the original members, “he continued.” I’m just saying that – I’m just floating it out there. 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 [laughs] and we’re still breathing in, I think we have every opportunity to make some great music together. “

Ozzy told The pulse of the radio during SABBATH‘s last turn it department was not in shape to attend. “Bill Ward has gotten the most physically demanding job of many of us because he’s the timer, “he said.” I do not personally think he had the chops to handle what you know. The saddest thing is that he needed to own up to it, and we could have worked around it, whether we had a drummer next to him or something. “

It was rumored SABBATH wanted to take another drummer on the road to share tasks with department, something there Iommi confirmed in 2017 during a question-and-answer session regarding SABBATH‘s “Ten years of war” box set.

In February 2017 SABBATH done “The end” tour of Birmingham, ending the quartet’s groundbreaking 49-year career.

“The end” was SABBATHlast trip due to Iommi – who was diagnosed with lymphoma in late 2011 – can no longer travel for long periods of time.

In 2015 department released his first solo album in 18 years. With the title “Responsible Beasts”, the plate can be purchased at iTunes.

In November 2017 department‘s band DAY OF ERROR released his first two songs, “Day with mistakes” and “Blasphemy of creation”, via iTunes, Spotify, Amazon MP3 and Google Play. Two more numbers, “Dark” and “Ghost Train”, followed in 2019.
