Bill Ward Can't Listen To New Black Sabbath Album

Bill Ward Can't Listen To New Black Sabbath Album

Black Sabbath released 13 earlier this year.  It was the first album to feature Ozzy Osborne in decades.

But, it was not a complete reunion.

Original drummer Bill Ward left the band in 2012.  Rage Against The Machine drummer Brad Wilk filled in while the band was in the studio and Tommy Clufetos is touring.

The departure from Black Sabbath was difficult for Ward and he reveals in an interview with Rock Cellar magazine that he hasn't listened to the new album.

Ward explains, "The only thing I've heard from 13 is...maybe 40 seconds of the first song, and then I turned it off.  I haven't heard anything of that album at all...And to be quite honest, I don't care to either.  It's too painful.  If I want to rip my guts out, I'll put it on."
