According to MetalTalk.net, a source has confirmed that Sharon Osbourne fired Bill Ward from the upcoming Black Sabbath reunion. The website also confirmed that the prototypical metal band has replaced its founding drummer with Tommy Clufetos (left), who has been playing in Ozzy Osbourne’s backup band. This follows Ward’s announcement last Friday that he won’t be able to participate in the reunion unless he receives a “signable” contract.
The question everyone is asking: Is this still a Black Sabbath “reunion” without Ward on drums? What do you think?
