Tony Iommi: 'One Day We May Play Together With Bill Ward'
Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi recently gave an update on the current state of affairs, still showing regret of drummer Bill Ward's absence from the band's latest album "13."

However, Tony didn't exclude a full-on Sabbath reunion in the near future, telling the Coast, "Funnily enough I had an email off Bill a few days ago. It's a shame he didn't want to do it at that time. No one was more upset than us, we wanted him to do it but we had to carry on, otherwise we'd still be waiting now.

"It threw us, we were shocked. But who knows, one day we may play together," the guitarist added.

Discussing his cancer battle, Iommi noted, "They [Ozzy Osbourne and Geezer Butler] were really helpful for me. When we were writing we did a lot from my house in my studio. It was helpful because I could go to treatments and have them here. Even if I couldn't work after I could go in and tell them and they'd be like, 'All right don't worry.' It helped me when I could play too, it got my mind off of it by having a laugh and a joke."

The chat ended with the topic of Tony's impact on music. "It's always the way though, isn't it," he said. "If you create something that people like they try to copy it. It's nice to see people looking at us as idols or whatever you want to call it. At least I can say I did it first," the guitarist humbly concluded.
