Black Sabbath Answers Ward’s Plea For ‘Signable Contract’

04:01 PM Friday 2/3/12 |   |

Original Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward posted a message to his website Thursday saying he couldn’t go along with the band’s reunion tour and album unless he received a “signable contract.” The band has now answered him and the news isn’t pretty.

    | 

Plans for the original Black Sabbath lineup include the band’s first album with Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Ward in 33 years, as well as a global tour scheduled to begin in Moscow May 18. But that was then.

Now it looks as if the album and tour will go forward as planned but without Ward.

From BlackSabbath.com:

“We were saddened to hear yesterday via Facebook that Bill declined publicly to participate in our current Black Sabbath plans...we have no choice but to continue recording without him although our door is always open... We are still in the UK with Tony. Writing and recording the new album and on a roll... See you at Download!!!

    Blame Ozzy and Sharon all you want but I do not see Tony Iommi or Geezer Butler sticking up for Bill Ward.

    This is what happened to Lee Kerslake and Bob Daisley  who helped co-write and performed on Blizzard of Oz and Diary of a Madman.   They got screwed out of a lot of royalties.     Along with Don Airey who played on those albums.  Then when they sued, Ozzy replaced them on the re-issues of those albums. They all got screwed by the Osbournes.  Good for Bill Ward, he knows how they operate.

    Another wonderful decision by the witch Sharon, the same person who defaced Ozzy's solo albums to screw the contributing musicians out of money, just like this. How much money does she need? I guess a lot to feed her shopping habit and support her freeloading kids. You would think mature adults could figure out a way to share the millions this tour will make,

    4 members created Black Sabbath & many would argue the early versions of Hard Rock/Heavy Metal.  With that said, each member is entitled to 25%.   FUC^&*# PERIOD!

    Good for Bill Ward. Sad that multi-millionaires like Ozzy and Sharon won't give the guy a contract, which guarantee's the guy some money.
