Ozzy Osbourne says that Black Sabbath and Bill Ward could fix their differences and reunite for a brand new album.
Their latest album "13" has been a huge global success, but Ward was the only original Sabbath member to miss out on the reunion record because of a contractual dispute.
When asked by NME if Ward might return to the band for a new album, Ozzy said: "It's a strong possibility. We would have loved to have Bill on this album. Maybe we can work things out by the next one. But it won't take another 35 years. I'm 65 now. There's no f--king recording studios in the afterlife."
If it doesn't work out, Ozzy says there's at least one good thing to come from the drama that resulted from their fallout. "We're all even closer for all this sh-t, so there's one positive, one f--king silver lining," he said.
Black Sabbath made UK chart history this week when "13" was their first number one album since "Paranoid" topped the chart 43 years ago in 1970. They beat former Oasis members in Beady Eye to the top spot by only 13,000 copies.
