This is great news, in that Tony must be feeling better. Right now, that is the most important thing — that Tony get well. But understanding that, will this gig include Bill Ward? Sabbath fans love Bill, and we want to see him with you, Tony, and Ozzy. Please say that Bill will be there.
Black Sabbath at Lollapalooza? You’re kidding, right? Wow, this Sharon Osbourne really is screwing this entire thing up isnt she? This great heavy metal band playing a gig like this? Really? I’m losing interest by the second.
Cool! Will the full original line up play this show?
Bring back the Mr. Bill ward….
Look on the official site lollapolooza and when you click in tha name of black sabbath you listen the crazy train under the name of sabbath… look out… WTF….
Much rather have the almighty Sabbath at Lollapalooza than not at all! Would be great if the incredible Bill Ward was on the skins too!
Black Sabbath playing is great news, period. And I really hope they give a taste of new material. Fans should not speculate about how or why a show happens- we are not on the business end. It will show Tony back in form (really hope he’s recovering well) and hopefully Bill will be there too. Maybe if I’m very lucky I’ll see you there! One of the all time greatest rock bassists ever. No doubt about it. Long live Black Sabbath.
parabéns Geezer só falta uma conversa homem á homem com Bill Ward
ps:go to Brazil please
I enjoy a variety of music and Black Sabbath is my favorite band.
But, with that said, there are certain issues the band as a whole and individual members need to address and correct/properly resolve.
Just to name some issues for now,
1) Show a conscience and good sense, and take responsibility, and show appreciation, regard and respect for the fans by properly addressing the Bill Ward drumming situation.
On 11/11/11 the four (4) original members a long with Rick Rubin made a significant announcement to the fans, media and the music world. Making public that the four (4) original members of Black Sabbath are reuniting, and also made public there will be a New Album and an extensive World Tour for 2012.
In reference to the Bill Ward drumming situation. Whoever is at fault has no relevance on how this situation should be handled by Ozzy, Tony, Bill and Geezer.
Bill for the most part has been the only member of Black Sabbath to take responsibility, show compassion and show a conscience, regard and respect for the fans in regards to this drumming situation.
At the Very Least, Ozzy, Tony and Geezer should make a significant public announcement/statement on a National level that properly addresses at the very least part of this drumming situation.
For example, “without going into much detail” We realize and understand how the fans feel and think about this unfortunate and lousy situation. We do understand there are a lot of fans that are very disappointed, frustrated, disgusted, pissed off and turned off about these unfortunate circumstances.
But without going into much detail and saying who is or who is not at fault, we just want to let the fans know that we are all very disappointed and very sorry about this situation and we will try to have this situation properly resolved as soon as possible, thank you.
Black Sabbath and Ozzy fans are of a wide age range, on average teenagers to people in their 70s.
Most people do not buy into that Prince of Darkness stuff.
Painting his finger nails black, it’s a little ridiculous.
It does not make much sense to continue this.
3) On and off over the years a majority of the Fans are referred to as kids.
There has been times when describing certain fans this way has been appropriate. But, there has been many times over the years when describing certain fans this way is not accurate and not appropriate.
Although there are a lot of kids/teenagers that are fans, there is also a lot of fans that are not kids.
4) Ozzy for the most part did not sound nasal in the 70s era and even through parts of the 80s era.
With all the money Ozzy’s worth it would seem that he can go to a specialist and get that corrected.
Did he ever bother to look into this?
I guess he probably has, and obviously there is probably a lot more to this. But with modern medicine, science, and advanced technology, I wonder why this has not been corrected.
5) Stage setup/show/Adam Wakeman
The stage setup is obviously fairly plain and simple.
Please update and enhance the stage setup to something interesting, intriguing and stimulating.
Also please have Adam Wakeman onstage with Black Sabbath.
How about some nostalgia, have Adam Wakeman play Sabbra Cadabra, one of the songs his father Rick Wakeman played from the Sabbath Bloody Sabbath album.
Contingent upon Tony’s health, have a band jam.
Is Black Sabbath going to play the songs, You won’t change me, Gypsy, Warning, Changes, The Writ, Megalomania, Juniors Eye’s, Johnny’s Blade, Hard Road, It’s Alright, She’s Gone, Rock ‘n’ Roll Doctor, Am I going Insane, Air Dance, etc,etc?
Please include an Adam Wakeman keyboard solo.
Anyway, hope these issues are addressed and corrected, and properly resolved.
Good luck to Tony and beating Cancer and to Jack with his fight/battles with MS.
