Ward's pic of site
The ongoing Ward/Sabbath saga continues with the latest move coming from the band at Ward’s request. Quick background: Original Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward complained that he is not getting the respect he deserves with a contract offered up by the band. Black Sabbath says that they are now using a replacement drummer. Now the band has removed Ward off their website, but at the request of Ward’s lawyers. The band says it’s temporary. Ward wants the photos taken down until the band complete their current run of shows. What’s next? Maybe they’ll be a real reunion and they can put all this behind them.
Hagar lost a bet
Former Van Halen front man Sammy Hagar says he lost a bet. News has it that the rocker bet the touring reunion of Van Halen would implode quicker than it did. It was revealed last week that Van Halen would postpone a slew of tour dates. Sources tell various media outlets that the band is fighting and that shows scheduled after June 26th will be put off—for how long? Not sure. Hagar donated $10,000 to a food pantry in Atlantic City just before a Chickenfoot concert.
