> > Bill Ward says: ‘No’

Yet another part of the “Bill-Ward-still-not-playing-with-Black-Sabbath” saga. Some time ago, bassist Geezer Butler said he would like the band’s former drummer to perform with them during their final show of “The End” tour, which is to be held in Sabb’s hometown Birmingham.

Yesterday, Bill Ward and team issued a brief statement concerning the matter:

We have seen it reported in the news that Bill will be playing with Black Sabbath on The End tour in the UK.  This is incorrect, and we wanted to make sure you heard it from us directly:  Bill is not playing with Black Sabbath in the UK or on any other dates of The End tour.

As always, we thank you for all your support and understanding.

Rock forever.
