Bill Ward would love to do a new album with Black Sabbath

Black Sabbath‘s drummer Bill Ward talks about performing with Black Sabbath again. Ward implies that the idea of making a studio album is good to him.

Legendary drummer of Black Sabbath, Bill Ward, appeared on Track Nation on March 13rd. He talked about the Black Sabbath legacy, the possibility to go back and do more tours, and his desire to make a studio album.

When he was asked whether he was OK with Black Sabbath being done, he mentioned a lot of things related to that:

“Well, I’m not done with the Black Sabbath legacy. I haven’t been done. I was made done, but I’m not done. So, the others might be done, but I’m not”, the successful drummer said, explaining he did not want to quit.

But when it came to touring again, Bill Ward admitted that it is not possible at this point. According to him, he did not have the “chops” to do it. He needs to go 12 years back in time to perform again, he said.

“But being realistic about that, as far as touring with Black Sabbath, I don’t have the chops, and I don’t have the ability to drive a band like that on stage. I have to be back to 60 years old to be able to do that.

Even though a tour seems impossible, Bill Ward said that he’d like to do a studio album again. Despite the band not talking about this possibility, Bill Ward seems pretty fond of that idea.

“I would love to do a studio album with Sabbath, with all the original members. I’m just saying that I’m just floating that out there – I haven’t talked to anybody about that or anything else.”

Bill Ward once again said that he was not done, whatever the other three might think.

“But I’m not done. So, the other three might be done, and I respect that, but no, I’m not done. I think as long as we all exist and we’re still breathing in the air, I think we have every possibility of making some great music together. I’m being honest. I’ll be 73 next birthday, and I know what kind of energy it takes to drive that band.”
