Back in August 2011, it was reported the original line up of Black Sabbath had re-united and were working on new material. A day later, metal fans had their hopes smashed when it was reported the reunion news was a hoax.
More fuel has been added to the on-off reunion rumours, as guitarist Tony Iommi has said in an interview with Planet Rock radio there was “a very strong possibilty” that he, frontman Ozzy Osbourne, bassist Geezer Butler and drummer Bill Ward would work together in the near future.
“At the moment we’re in talks about it.“, said Iommi, “…but what’s going to happen with it, I don’t know. There’s no definite decision on anything at the moment, but at least it’s going. We’re talking, we’re all talking to each other. We’ve met up, had a play and it was great.”
So far no concrete plans have been made.
