Black Sabbath: Drummer Situation `Up In The Air`, Says Sharon Osbourne

Artisan News caught up with Ozzy Osbourne's wife/manager Sharon Osbourne on February 9th at The Grammy Foundation's annual Grammy Week preservation event at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills, California and spoke to her about the current Black Sabbath drummer situation (see video below).

When asked if Ozzy, bassist Geezer Butler and guitarist Tony Iommi have found a replacement for the band's original drummer, Bill Ward, she replied, "You know, I don't know. I honestly, honestly don't know. It's all up in the air. The one thing that is for sure is that Sabbath are in the studio with Rick Rubin and they are going on tour. That's all I know. And Tony is doing brilliantly well." 

Ward announced two weeks ago that he could not participate in the planned reunion of the band's founding lineup without what he called a "signable" contract. 

The other three members of Sabbath have already announced that they will move forward without Ward, with Ozzy's solo band drummer Tommy Clufetos rumored to be already in the studio with them.
