- When Black Sabbath hit the road on their farewell reunion tour, one member of the band’s original lineup was missing; an absence Ozzy Osbourne calls “bittersweet”.
- Opening up to Kerrang! magazine, the iconic singer admits, “I didn’t like the fact that Bill Ward wasn’t there, for a start. People put that down to me, but it wasn’t me, honestly.”
- While their fill-in drummer did a “great” job according to the Ozzman, he feels, “It should have been the four of us ending it.”
- Perhaps they’ll bury the hatchet for the fans, with Ozzy adding, “Those final gigs in Birmingham were bittersweet because you think of how far we came, and how much we did, and it would have been good to have shared that together. Maybe one day there’ll be one last gig, I don’t know.”
