BLACK SABBATH guitarist Tony Iommi was interviewed by Gigwise earlier today on the red carpet at the Q Awards, which are taking place tonight in London, England. You can watch the chat below.
Asked what it was like seeing estranged SABBATH drummer Bill Ward at this year’s Ivor Novello Awards, Iommi replied: “It was good. It was really great to see Bill. I mean, Bill and I stayed in contact. Not as much as we used to, but we do stay in contact. But it was really nice to see him, and it was just a nice warm feeling to be with Bill again.”
When quizzed on the chances of SABBATH settling its differences with Ward to perfom together on their “final tour” next year, Iommi replied: “No, to be honest. I don’t know if that’s gonna happen. But who knows? You never know.”
As for the possibility of SABBATH recording one final album before they call it a day, Iommi said that “it could happen.” He added: “We’ve got some tracks that we recorded before with [producer] Rick Rubin in L.A.,” he replied. “When we did our last album [2013’s ’13’], we’d done 16 tracks, but we only put eight on the album, so there are tracks there that could possibly show their face at some point.”
