‘Bill Ward couldn’t cut it” says Ozzy


The frontman claims the band's former drummer couldn't remember what to do.

Speaking to Mojo, Osbourne claims that "We looked at Bill, and he couldn't remember what the f**k we were doing. But he didn't come clean and say, 'I can't cut this gig, but can we work something out, guys, where I'll come on but with another drummer backing me up?' Or, 'I'll come and play a few songs.' That would have been cool."

"You know them yellow f***ing stick-on memo notes? He had them all over his f***ing drums," continues Osbourne. "I was like, 'What the f**k's that for, Bill?' He said, 'I can't remember what I'm doing.' I go, 'How are you gonna remember out of those 500,000 bits of paper stuck all over your kit, which one you're looking at, Bill?'"

Sabbath recently announced a series of UK arena dates in December 2013, which will kick off at London's O2 Arena on December 12th, finishing with a homecoming date at Birmingham’s LG Arena on December 20th.
