And the drummer for Black Sabbath’s upcoming tour is…

Posted by on January 13, 2016


…not Bill Ward. Earlier today, to help pump up the last Black Sabbath tour ever (or THE END, as they’re calling it), the band put up a teaser video on their YouTube page. Playing “Paranoid,” in the brief teaser, it shows a car showing up to a rehearsal studio, Ozzy Osbourne, and Tony Iommi shuffling in, some amps, a set list, the familiar riff of “Paranoid,” then… Tommy Clufetos on drums. That’s really not that big of a surprise, given that Ozzy’s current drummer played on the road with the band a few years ago for the 13 tour, and did an admirable job. Sadly, though, it looks like Sabbath will end their touring career without Bill Ward on drums.
