I’m not saying there’s one in the cards, but Geezer Butler is saying he’s open to the idea.
Because nothing is ever over, right? Sure, Sabbath’s The End Tour wrapped up in February of 2017, and that was supposed to be it. But if you remember, that tour didn’t feature Bill Ward on drums.
Flash forward to last week, when Butler joined Tony Iommi in Birmingham, England for the official naming ceremony of Black Sabbath Bridge. Turns out the bassist and guitar player continue to stay in touch. And they even see Bill Ward out at shows from time to time. The wildcard, of course, is the Ozzman.
Butler says he hasn’t seen Ozzy at all since wrapping up The End, but that he’d be open to a one-off reunion “if it came up.” “I wouldn’t say never. I can’t imagine it ever happening, but then I said that about the Sabbath tour, and it happened, so who am I to know?”
That quote is from a recent interview with Classic Rock, which you can read here.
