In a recent interview, Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler stated that original drummer Bill Ward was given the opportunity to play Black Sabbath’s last show, but he decided that he didn’t want to do that. However, Ward quickly made a Facebook post stating that he was never offered the opportunity to play with Black Sabbath, and if he was to play with them, he would have wanted to play multiple shows, not just one. Yesterday, Geezer has admitted that he misspoke, apologizing via a tweet.
“It appears Bill Ward was never invited to do a last show – my mistake. Sorry @billwarddrums,” the tweet reads. At least the bassist can admit when he’s wrong. Again, it’s sad that the band can’t put everything behind them, because a full-on reunion seems like it’s something that everyone wants, aside from Sharon Osbourne and possibly Tommy Clufetos. Hell, Clufetos would probably even understand. The band started their “The End” tour last week. You can see all the dates here.
