Bill Ward open to Black Sabbath reunion

Recently Bill Ward sat down with Backstageaxxess and questions were asked about his relationship with the original members of Black Sabbath and the possibility of the band reuniting.

Gus: What’s the status of your relationship with the other original members of Black Sabbath?  Is everyone on good speaking terms?

Bill: Yeah! I spoke to Tony a couple of times this year. Me and him seem to be getting along fine.  We had a good heart to heart on some things. I know he’s been busy.  We talk to each other over the phone.  I talk to Ozzy at least twice a week.  He will call and I’ll try to call him back and what have you. We are always talking to each other.  Geezer …I don’t talk to on the phone. He likes to email.  I don’t get to correspond with him very often.  He’s always in my heart.  He’s just there, period, all the time.

Gus: Do you foresee a reunion of any sorts with the original members of Black Sabbath at any point, including the possibility of recording new material?

Bill: Gus, I have a complete open mind.  I would be available to see what we would like to do and how we would like to do it. I would have to look at the entire picture. Would I like to? My open mind says yes!  We would have to see if that was possible by how everybody else is feeling, and if there is a possibility to move forward. It’s hard. It’s so wonderful to play with the band that I didn’t want to come off the last tour.  Like I said, I think the last tour ended like three years ago. When the band played Europe, Gus, I just thought the band was flying high and the band sounded great!  It sounded tight. I thought …My God… let’s keep on playing!  Let’s go around the world with this all the way around and around again. It was hard to come off the tour.  I know all good things must come to an end but it was tough.
