Bill Ward Wants To Reunite With Black Sabbath For A New Album: “I’m Very Open-Minded About Doing Something Like That”

During an interview with Metro, ex-Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward said that he would like to make a new album with the band’s original lineup. He went on to say that he hasn’t discussed the idea with his former bandmates directly, but he is “very open-minded about doing something like that.”

Ward said the following about recent contacts he had with the other members of the group:

“I talked to Ozzy [Osbourne] two nights ago. A lot of things have crossed between us and there’s new boundaries that I’ve had to build, but I don’t think any less of them. I’ve been working with Tony [Iommi] since 1964 when I was 16 years old. They’re my brothers and I love them.”

He also added the following about the possibility of recording a new album with the band:

“As far as I’m concerned, the book’s never closed with Sabbath. I’m writing like a demon, I’m living life. My biggest contention has been, ‘Let’s make another album. Nothing live necessarily, because I’m looking at what I can realistically do. The way I play the drums, it’s becoming tougher as I get older. I haven’t spoken to the guys about it, but I have talked to a couple of people in management about the possibility of making a recording. Which I can do safely, even with COVID around. I can lay track at my studio in Los Angeles. I’m very open-minded about doing something like that.”
