No Reunion For Sabbath
Black Sabbath fans will be disappointed to hear it’s not time to start de-mothing their t-shirts, as a possible reunion is NOT on the cards!
The group’s former guitarist Tony Iommi has stated the report made by the Birmingham Mail, which claimed he had confirmed the original lineup of Ozzy Osbourne, Geezer Butler, Bill Ward and himself would be making a comeback soon, was taken out of context.
Tony posted on his official website,
“I was supporting the Home of Metal exhibition and was merely speculating, shooting the breeze, on something all of us get asked constantly, ‘Are you getting back together?’"
"Thanks to the Internet, it's gone round the world as some sort of ‘official’ statement on my part, absolute nonsense...To my old pals, Ozzy, Geezer and Bill, sorry about this, I should have known better.”
According to the paper, he had revealed that in June this year he and vocalist Ozzy had written new material for a record that will be released next year.
It came after Sabbath bassist Geezer put out a press release six months ago saying a reunion would never happen.
"I would like to make it clear, because of mounting speculation and rumours, that there will be definitely no reunion of all four original members of Black Sabbath.. Whether to a record, an album or to tour."
The last time the original line-up toured together was in 2005, while the last Sabbath album ‘Never Say Die’ was released in 1978.
A spokeswoman for singer Ozzy told The Times on Tuesday that “we have no information to report” on the story.
Way to get us excited guys! But fingers crossed you have a change of heart in the future.
