BLACK SABBATH have decided to recruit an as-yet unnamed drummer for their nearing live performances. The move follows a failure to come to an agreement with drummer Bill Ward.
A group statement from Black Sabbath was issued on the matter today and reads as follows:
“We have decided not to make any detailed comment on Bill‘s latest statement. There are two sides to every story. We have been working hard at rehearsals making excellent progress after Tony‘s treatments and we have engaged a substitute drummer for the forthcoming shows. See you at Download.”
