There’s a new video interview up with Tony Iommi from the Dio cancer benefit last night. It’s a short video, but it’s packed with goodies. From the video, we can gather this..
- There are 15 tracks from the new album, and about six have been recorded
- The rumour that Tony has laid down all his guitar bits for all 15 is false.
But the biggest bit for me is regarding Bill Ward. Tony feels “we’ve gone past that” regarding Bill’s possible return for this project. It has to do with the length of Bill being absent. Folks – that ship has sailed.
Go listen to Tony yourself.
Oh, while this isn’t in the interview at all, I heard a rumour yesterday from someone I don’t want to name that the drummer on the album is neither Bill Ward nor Tommy Clufetos. If that’s true, it’ll be interesting to see who it is.
