Ozzy Wants to Do Another Black Sabbath Album with Bill Ward

Ozzy Osbourne is so pleased about the success of the new Black Sabbath album “13″ that he wants to do another one – and next time he wants Bill Ward right there with him.

Three of the original members; Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler were reunited in the studio but due to legal issues drummer, Bill Ward was unable to complete the original lineup of Black Sabbath for the recording of “13″.

Ozzy told “The Pulse of Radio” that the band would love to reunite with Ward and the sooner the better.

…it won’t take another 35 years. I’m 65 now. There’s no fucking recording studios in the afterlife. – Ozzy Osbourne

There is an added reason to hurry, Tony Iommi has been battling lymphoma. The chemotherapy, radiotherapy and treatments that help with his immune system seem to be helping but there will continue to be health concerns and so the band, or at least Ozzy, doesn’t want to waste any time.

We would love it too.

It's the only negative thing about the new album. #BBB

Yea, this would be great. I'm glad Ozzy is sticking with this, too. Black Sabbath is the biggest live band in the land, no doubt.
