I think Yoko Ono is Japanese for Sharon Osbourne. I believe if Ozzy died today, Sharon would take Ozzy's corpse on a two year world tour tomorrow. My first encounter with Sharon was over 30 years ago and she has only gotten better at what she does: MILK OZZY!

Bill, you’re doing the right thing it's only fair you get what the rest of the band members are getting it should be no less.

It Will Never Be a Black Sabbath Reunion with-out BILL WARD!!

Sharon, you’re a greedy person (BITCH) you disrespected the Fans the one's that pay for your Extravagant Lifestyle.

If you are going to have a reunion and all of the members are still alive and kickin', then do it right! Whoever was in charge of getting Bill to perform didn't do his job. He's the one that needs to be replaced!

I'd figure management would be willing to pay Bill an equal portion considering Tony's health and the prospect of a final Sabbath tour.

Was "Children Of The Grave" not kick-ass enough?!?

If hes not there its not a reunion its a bunch of money hungry a holes playing music for big bucks and nothing else they should just stop before they become a commodity instead and not playing for the right reasons -> {metallica}

Greed made Kiss what it is in the first place from day one.

I don't think I'll be buying any Sabbath album that comes out without Bill on drums. And I don't think I'll go see them in concert...well maybe if they discount the tickets by 25% :/

I agree.
There is no doubt she has some responsibility in this I would bet.

TOTAL Sharon.

Yeah, this reeks of Sharon, she is the only one of the inner circle that has that kind of clout and is that insensitive and greedy. Come on, ante up, four guys in the band, four guys get paid the same and everyone is happy and the world gets to see one of the most influential bands in modern music history.

I couldn't agree more with the afore mentioned comments, pay the man or give him equal share or whatever the fuck you cheap bastards are denying him,I mean for Christ's sake is it going to bankrupt the tour or what!? I'm sure whatever he's asking for is fair and he's earned it at the very least to be treated fairly!

Whoever handles the money(Sharon?), just pay the man his due and have a real reunion before original members are no longer on earth to participate.

Well said. I am sorry that he is not performing with the band, but he is just as important as the other members of the band and deserves a fair share. I respect taking a stand and I think he is handling this in a respectful manner.
