I dont pay attention to Sharon Osbourne...but after Randy Rhoads died, I'd say if it wasn't for her, Ozzy wouldn't have had a career...and probably would have ended up dead.

Well, I'm not purposely going to go out of my way to offend anyone here and I'm not going to waste anyone's time continuing this debate.

that's about all we can ask of each other. ANR's golden rule:

A lot of Irish people use that word very freely. My grandmother wasn't even offended by it, she thought it was funny, as does my aunt who is a prude. I can't even read that word without thinking of it pronounced in an Irish accent. I always just considered it in the same way nudity offends people here, but not so much in Europe. Some people definitely find it extremely offensive though. Kind of an interesting dichotomy.

Black Sabbath to continue reunion without Bill Ward
Metal legends dismiss drummer's complaints over 'unsignable' contract, saying their comeback will carry on without him

Black Sabbath's comeback will take place without Bill Ward. The metal legends have announced they are moving on without their original drummer, dismissing his complaints about the terms of their reunion.

In a statement on their website, Ozzy Osbourne, Geezer Butler and Tony Iommi hardly seemed sympathetic to Ward's grievances. "We were saddened to hear via Facebook that Bill declined publicly to participate in our current [plans]," they wrote. "We have no choice but to continue recording without him although our door is always open."

Though the specifics of the dispute have not been revealed, Ward has emphasised his interest in and commitment to the group – he simply has issues with the contract. "My position is not greed-driven," Ward wrote on Thursday. "I'm not holding out for a 'big piece' of the action (money) like some kind of blackmail deal … [just] a signable contract … that reflects some dignity and respect toward me as an original member of the band."

Fans have been vocal in their respect for Ward's decision. "Your support from across the world has given me further strength and hope for a positive resolve," Ward wrote on Saturday . "I have been moved and overwhelmed by the thousands of messages. I love you all."

Meanwhile, Osbourne, Butler and Iommi have begun writing and recording their first album in 34 years. They are currently based in England, where Iommi is receiving treatment for cancer. Black Sabbath still plan to launch a world tour in May, including an appearance at June's Download festival. But it seems they will do so without Ward – who played on 10 of the band's first 11 albums.

On one hand, Ward apparently did get a shitty deal when he signed on to do the late 90's reunion with Sabbath, but on the other hand, the guy is a shadow of his former self, even back on that reunion. Seeing as this may very well be the last time Tony Iommi tours even if he gets through the cancer issue, they should get their shit together if they seriously want to do this and not go out under rather pathetic circumstances. It's just kind of sad, Ward really stuck by Ozzy all these years, dropping out of Sabbath when Ozzy was out (although on at least one occasion, it was because he was an alcoholic mess and couldn't tour in '84).

Looks like the reunion's falling apart. Now it's been announced the only show will be an "Ozzy and Friends" festival gig w/Geezer Butler and Zakk Wylde and probably whoever the replacement drummer is for Bill Ward at the Download this Summer. And it doesn't sound good for Iommi.

Ward indeed was terrible

:sad:

That sucks. I'm guessing Puff will be on drums...? Basically, same old Ozzy. Doesn't interest me at all. No historical value.

Yeah but I'm happy Zakk is going to be playing with him on these shows if Tony can not make the shows.

I wasn't planning on going to the Sabbath reunion either.

I've been dissapointed too many times in these reunion things. JA is 20 beyond their time, Sabbath is 40.



Ozzy in very fine form here

It's gonna be Slash on guitar, not Zak.

I love Slash though.

Guns N Roses (well Axl and his hired Guns) are playing the same festival. Maybe there'll be a reunion :lolol: :lolol: :lolol:

I really wish the original GnR would reunite. Fake GnR sells out arenas as is. Imagine how well real GnR would do.

They'd have to go with Matt Sorum on drums, Steven Adler can't cut it on the level a GnR show would demand anymore.

I think Axl, Slash and Duff would be enough for most people to feel like they're seeing the real deal.

as far as GNR goes, i think even with duff and slash back in the picture, it's still gonna be the axl show, much like jane's addiction. it'll never be this rough scruffy band that everyone fell in love with. axl is too far gone.

in my opinion, some of these folks find moments of humbleness, speaking of perry, roth, eddie, axl, but as soon as they reach a reasonable amount of adoration from these sick die hard fans blow smoking up their ass, they fall right back into their ego driven self and it goes right back to that bad place that broke it all apart.

as for black sabbath, i think ozzy and sharon will never forget how tommi and the band dumped him. it's amazing ozzy was able to have a career after black sabbath, but he was able to do so. and the reality is, he has the upper hand in any negotiations with that group of folks. he and sharon will never again, let them think for one second they can do this without ozzy. for that reason, the other 3 will never get an equal share, nor will they be treated as an equal.

ozzy doesn't need black sabbath. he can do those songs all day long with zakk and 90% of the people don't care.

So true.

I'm definitely more of a casual GnR fan, so it would be exciting for me. I wouldn't have any expectations that they be the band I fell in love with as a kid or anything.

Makes me think about the people going to see Jane's that feel that way too. I have some random friends on FB that I dont really talk to or know very well SO stoked for this show. I'm sure they couldn't name one band member outside of Dave and Perry and have no clue that the original bass player wont be there.

Ha. That reminded me of the time Esqfool and I (ran in to each other there) were seeing The Music at the same venue Jane's is playing and some guy was talking about how great it was that Eric was back in Jane's for Jubilee.

Which reminds me even further of the people around us at Jubilee that thought Martyn was Eric.

Man, I've been seeing Jane's shows with Esqfool for 11 years now.
