Black Sabbath Reunion May Be Dead Due To ‘Contract Issues’

Black Sabbath are ready to give fans the reunion they’ve dreamed of for years but a simple contract dispute may force one of the original members to drop out.

When Sabbath didn’t put the brakes on their new album when guitarist Tony Iommi was diagnosed with Lymphoma, we were sure that this thing was finally going to happen no matter what. Now it appears we may have been wrong. Drummer Bill Ward posted a lengthy statement to fans where he constantly reassured fans that he is passionate about the new album and tour but cannot move forward until he is presented with a proper contract.

Ward stated that he had participated in all reunion activities thus far in good faith and further explained that he was presented with an “unsignable contract” on two occasions now. He also emphasized that his statement is not a bargaining tactic or a “greed-driven” manuever, Ward claims he just wants a contract that”reflects some dignity and respect toward me as an original member of the band.”
