BLACK SABBATH: Damnit! Are They or Aren’t They!
A Birmingham Mail.net reporter is on my shit list and by the looks of a released statement by Tony Iommi, he’s on Tony’s, too. This wanker took some conversation between himself and Iommi and misconstrued the whole thing regarding Black Sabbath getting back together. Now there’s postings everywhere, including here, that something monumental was happening and there’s not.
Here’s the current statement by Iommi on his website:
Black Sabbath Reunion
I’m saddened that a Birmingham journalist whom I trusted has chosen this point in time to take a conversation we had back in June and make it sound like we spoke yesterday about a Black Sabbath reunion.
At the time I was supporting the Home of Metal exhibition and was merely speculating, shooting the breeze, on something all of us get asked constantly, “Are you getting back together?”
Thanks to the internet it’s gone round the world as some sort of “official” statement on my part, absolute nonsense. I hope he’s enjoyed his moment of glory, he won’t have another at my expense.
To my old pals, Ozzy, Geezer and Bill, sorry about this, I should have known better.
All the best, Tony
So, Mr. Andy Coleman at BirminghamMail.net – you suck and you’ll burn in hell for this one…tsk tsk tsk.
