Ozzy Osbourne recently gave a rather blunt assessment as to why he thinks drummer Bill Ward isn’t participating in the ongoing Black Sabbath reunion. Speaking with nydailynews.com, Osbourne is quoted as saying:
“I don’t think he could have done the gig, to be honest. He’s incredibly overweight. A drummer has to be in shape. He’s already had two heart attacks. I don’t want to be responsible for his life.”
Ward‘s absence from the reunion was well publicized with contractual disputes being his issue. Rage Against The Machine drummer Brad Wilk was brought in for the studio sessions of the groups latest release “13“; while Tommy Clufetos has been handling the drumming duties in a live capacity.
