Black Sabbath (NOT?) reuniting for album & tour

Black Sabbath

Despite what seemed like irreconcilable differences, the original lineup of Black Sabbath will give it another go.

THE most closely guarded secret in rock music can be revealed – the original Black Sabbath line-up is getting back together.

Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward have begun rehearsing for a tour and new studio album.

In June this year vocalist Ozzy and guitarist Iommi wrote new material for a record that will be released next year.

”We’re really looking forward to it and I think the stuff we’ve been writing is really good,” said 63-year-old Iommi. ”It’s more back to the old original stuff.”

He added that the reunion has been kept under wraps for some time….

Iommi said his only concern about the current reformation was the health of drummer Bill Ward who in the past has suffered a heart attack.

”He hasn’t been 100 per cent. He had an operation a few months ago, so we’ll see how he is.” -[Birmingham Mail]

Update: Tony says this is not true.

Black Sabbath last reunited with Ozzy in 1997 for Ozzfest. They stayed together until roughly 2006. More recently the Dio lineup was back together as Heaven & Hell, though that came to a sad end when Ronnie James Dio left this plane back in May 2010.
