Sabbath have also recently announced that they are writing and recording a new album, Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler going ahead despite Bill Wards recent departure. There still hasn't been an official announcement as to Wards replacement, but we don't have long to wait to find out who it is -
hotly tipped beatmasters are Mike Bordin (Faith No More founder & drummer, Ozzy) and Vinny Appice (DIO, Black Sabbath, Ozzy). UPDATE -Tommy Clufetos appears to be hitting the skins during these shows..... Clufetos isOzzy's regular drummer and also appearing on the Ozzy & friends tour going at moment.
