Not one to rest on his laurels, excommunicated Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward has been busy preparing a solo effort.
We’ll see whose old now, Ozzy!
The album will be called Accountable Beasts, and will soon be mixed.
“I’m doing a load of writing right now,” Ward explains in an interview on Blabbermouth. “Every day I get up at eight o’clock in the morning [and] I’m writing. I’m just inside songs right now.”
While he awaits the final mix, “I’m writing something else for further down the line. I’m very loose about everything, and that’s not such a bad thing.”
Ward also addressed the whole Black Sabbath debacle, and said he’d be down to return to the fold.
He says it would be “wonderful. But if it isn’t Black Sabbath, I do have something else in mind where I can still get to play drums. As much as I love writing and everything, I miss being out on the road. I miss playing live and I miss traveling. As much as I like everything else I’m doing, it would be very nice to be there in a year’s time, being busy on a stage somewhere.”
