UPDATE: Sabbath, Ward in Pissing Match

 

UPDATE 5/19: See below for latest press release. You know, these guys are starting to come across as old whores arguing about whose pimp gave ’em the best lovin’… fans are rapidly losing interest in ANY type of Sabbath reunion at this point, Ward or no War…

“At the request of Bill Ward, through his attorney, so as
to not give the public the wrong impression about his involvement in the current
Black Sabbath lineup, we have temporarily removed Bill Ward’s images from the
main pages of the blacksabbath.com 
official website.  In accordance with Bill Ward’s attorney’s request, we are
doing so for the duration of the forthcoming shows.” — BLACK SABBATH

Maybe Big Black’s old drum machine is available for the gig…

That Black Sabbath – Bill Ward feud over Ward allegedly being disrespected by his estranged bandmates boiled over finally yesterday following Ward’s publication a couple of days ago of a 1,504-word letter  detailing his disillusionment over the band and his decision not to take part in the much-publicized reunion.

Sabbath subsequently sent out the following press release late yesterday:

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.

-Black Sabbath, 5/17/12

 

No word yet who that substitute will be, although we know for certain that Meg White is available…
