After everyone accepted the passing of Ronnie James Dio and the realization that the version of Black Sabbath with him in it (now known as Heaven & Hell) was cut off in it’s prime, the rumors began. People started to wonder if we would get an original Black Sabbath reunion with Ozzy back in front. The idea was growing like a weed.
Then about a month ago Ozzy came out saying that he’d like to
make one more album with Black Sabbath. Upon this everyone in the rock and metal scene, including myself had a a collective “Holy Shit” moment. Could the reunion of reunions be on the horizon? The fact that Ozzy himself said he’d like to was mind blowing considering recent lawsuits over the name Black Sabbath.
But sadly that “Holy Shit” moment has been stopped dead in it’s tracks recently as
Geezer Butler has said that despite rumors there will not be a Black Sabbath reunion which leaves me thinking that Butler is still sore over the Black Sabbath lawsuits of recent times. Which is a sad thought.
The idea of a Black Sabbath reunion is every rock and metal fans wet dream. The essential godfathers of rock and metal going out one last time would be epic, but sadly isn’t going to happen any time soon.
But it leads me to wonder, is it the lawsuits over the name Black Sabbath why Geezer Butler has said there will be no reunion or is the idea of dealing with Sharon Osbourne the reason why the reunion will never happen?
