Tony Iommi maybe suffering cancer right now but even that is not slowing him down. He is just going to keep playing music until he can’t. Ozzy says that Black Sabbath is planning one last studio album and tour in 2015. The album will feature Tony, Geezer and Ozzy in the line-up still. Will Bill Ward be on board for the final Sabbath album? Who knows. We’ll have to wait and see what Bill says. He’s probably still gonna say “no” until Sabbath gives him what he wants, a negotiable contract but anyway, even if Bill doesn’t want in… who cares. Sabbath have went through so many members over the years.
Anyway, the next Sabbath album will be considered the 20th Sabbath album and would be the 10th album w/ Ozzy as singer.
I thought Sabbath’s latest album, “13” was pretty sick but it could have been heavier and darker. Hopefully, the next one will be a lot heavier. “13” was still a great album, though.
Even with cancer, Tony is still a pretty amazing guitarist and he can still come up with badass guitar riffs and play ripping solos. I’m sure he’ll do the same with the next album.
