Slipknot Drummer Joey Jordison To Replace Bill Ward in Black Sabbath Reunion

Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison has reportedly been tapped to record drums on the new Black Sabbath album and has been spotted arriving in England just yesterday.

When contacted, Tony Iommi’s management had no comment. But Ozzy himself was reached and stated:

“It’s supposed to be a secret. But Joey is a world class drummer, so sure, we’re glad to have him working on the new album with us.”

There’s no word as yet if Jordison will be touring with the band on the upcoming “Ozzy and Friends” dates or future Black Sabbath dates.

This development comes after no agreement could be reached with original Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward and rumors abound that the gap is one of money.

What's Next?

I don`t understand why this Slipknot drummer will take Bills place. If I were him, I woluld say NO THANK YOU I`M A FAN OF BLACK SABBATH, NOT A MEMBER...And I don`t understand why Ozzy, Tony and Geezer will do this without Bill. I will not buy their new album for that sake...

This is certainly not true. I can't imagine Joey Jordison being the new drummer of Black Sabbath, this is like some metal singer replacing Kurt Cobain in Nirvana.

of course it's not true. this would be terrible for metal. it definitely wouldn't be weird for ozzy to pull something like that for his solo act, but there's no way Sabbath would let an outsider like that into the band as a permanent member. Jordison is a very respected drummer, but he would not fit in BS.

Jordison would be a better than adaquate replacement for Bill Ward imho. Greedy Ward is asking for a fair cut,when Sharon already offered that greedy hack 5 percent! Drummers need to know thier place in the overall realm of things; they're really not all that important. Sabbath could replace Ward with a drum machine. Split all the dough 3 ways than. Ozzy 90%,Tony 5%,Geezer 5%.

Black Sabbath is Ozzy, Tony, Geezer and Bill. Period.

Answer: 25% 25% 25% 25%. Shame on those wanting more than an equal share - band members, agents, or family.

This should be bigger than any individual, but it is what it is. I'll buy music from, and attend concerts by, the four guys shown above TOGETHER. Nothing less.

I love how the claws come out and everyone attacks Sabbath , cursing them out and threatening to not buy the album. When all it is, is an APRIL FOOLS DAY JOKE!!! 3 things society has lost, 1. A sense of humor. 2. Common sense and 3. Common courtesy. Sabbath Rules!
