Bill Ward on Ozzy: 'I've Lost a Friend as Far as I'm Concerned'
Estranged Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward recently opened up about being away from the Sabbath fold, confessing how difficult it is for him.

"I miss playing with Geezer [Butler], just horribly," the drummer told DC Heavy Metal. "I absolutely miss him to death. And I miss playing with Tony just ... every day. I mean every single day I - it just blows me away man."

Focusing on singer Ozzy Osbourne, Bill gave a bit of a different comment, saying, "And obviously I miss Oz. I've lost a friend as far as I'm concerned. A man that I dearly loved, and I still dearly love but I've had to really now readjust just how much I'm going to trust and love him."
