    time greatest rock bassists ever No doubt about it Long live Black Sabbath Luiz Gustavo Inà cio Antunes says May 23 2012 at 6 36 pm parabà ns Geezer só falta uma conversa homem à homem com Bill Ward ps go to Brazil please Joe says June 20 2012 at 8 54 pm Hello Geezer I enjoy a variety of music and Black Sabbath is my favorite band But with that said there are certain issues the band as a whole and individual members need to address and correct properly resolve Just to name some issues for now 1 Show a conscience and good sense and take responsibility and show appreciation regard and respect for the fans by properly addressing the Bill Ward drumming situation On 11 11 11 the four 4 original members a long with Rick Rubin made a significant announcement to the fans media and the music world Making public that the four 4 original members of Black Sabbath are reuniting and also made public there will be a New Album and an extensive World Tour for 2012 In reference to the Bill Ward drumming situation Whoever is at fault has no relevance on how this situation should be handled by Ozzy Tony Bill and Geezer Bill for the most part has been the only member of Black Sabbath to take responsibility show compassion and show a conscience regard and respect for the fans in regards to this drumming situation At the Very Least Ozzy Tony and Geezer should make a significant public announcement statement on a National level that properly addresses at the very least part of this drumming situation For example â œwithout going into much detailâ We realize and understand how the fans feel and think about this unfortunate and lousy situation We do understand there are a lot of fans that are very disappointed frustrated disgusted pissed off and turned off about these unfortunate circumstances But without going into much detail and saying who is or who is not at fault we just want to let the fans know that we are all very disappointed and very sorry about this situation and we will try to have this situation properly resolved as soon as possible thank you 2 Ozzy Black Sabbath and Ozzy fans are of a wide age range on average teenagers to people in their 70s Most people do not buy into that Prince of Darkness stuff Painting his finger nails black it s a little ridiculous It does not make much sense to continue this 3 On and off over the years a majority of the Fans are referred to as kids There has been times when describing certain fans this way has been appropriate But there has been many times over the years when describing certain fans this way is not accurate and not appropriate Although there are a lot of kids teenagers that are fans there is also a lot of fans that are not kids 4 Ozzy

    also noticed you re into mysticism and higher spirituality like I am Aside from reading Aleister Crowley s stuff ever read the works of other religious mystics from various religions including Sts Catherine of Genoa Catherine of Siena John of the Cross and the works of Thomas Merton John Calvin Martin Luther Dietrich Bonhoeffer etc I thought I d pass that on to you too without sounding like I m being preachy LOL I also wondered and imagined what it would be like to do some rock guitar interpretations of some sacred works by Bach such as the St John or St Matthew Passions They have some rather heavy duty and intense passages and runs in their chorales and solos that to imagine a few metal guitarists perform these in a quasi dueling fashion would be awesome in my opinion If you hear only a few measures of some of the opening choruses intros and lead passages I m sure that would be a true show stopper as well as point out to some fans the uniqueness and versatility rock musicians have On YouTube these oratorios performed by the late Karl Richter and his Munich Bach Choir and Orchestra are truly a tour de force One version is an actual music video recorded inside a church in southern Germany because it has terrific acoustics I m sure you felt the same way when recording and rehearsing some of your material in a church sanctuary as well It s sung in German but it features English subtitles and another version just features the music score and the lyrics are in German Most of it comes from the Bible but the chorales and solos are not and act as personal commentary or in some cases as devotional prayers between these passages If
