She fired Bill Ward from the Black Sabbath reunion.

Want to have a pleasant little chat with her about it?

Me too!

From Blabbermouth.net (Thanks, Phunky!) :

BLACK SABBATH Drummer Replacement Rumor Leads To Online Backlash
- Feb. 8, 2012

According to The Pulse Of Radio, a source has told MetalTalk.net that the three remaining original members of BLACK SABBATH have recruited Tommy Clufetos, who plays drums in singer Ozzy Osbourne's solo band, to sit behind the SABBATH kit for the foreseeable future. The source added that manager Sharon Osbourne has effectively "fired" founding drummer Bill Ward, who announced last week that he could not participate in the recording sessions or tour plans due to his unhappiness with the contract he was offered.

Ozzy, guitarist Tony Iommi and bassist Geezer Butler responded to Ward's February 2 statement by saying, "We have no choice but to continue recording without him although our door is always open."

The absence of Ward effectively prevents this from being the full-blown regrouping of the original SABBATH lineup that was first envisioned last year.

A number of SABBATH fans have rallied around Ward and have launched a new Facebook page dubbed "1,000,000 Black Sabbath Fans Say Yes To Bill Ward".

Ward said in his statement that he could not participate in the reunion, which was announced last November, unless presented with what he described as a "fair agreement" and a "signable contract" that financially reflected his contributions to SABBATH's history and his standing as a founding member of the band.

The recording sessions for what was meant to be the original band's first new album in 33 years were recently moved to London so that Iommi, who is undergoing treatment for cancer, could be close to his doctors.

SABBATH is scheduled to release its new album later this year and is confirmed to play the U.K.'s Download festival in June. All other tour plans, however, are up in the air pending Iommi's ability to overcome his illness.

So basically Sharon is Gene Simmons and Bill Ward is Peter Criss. This is exactly why Peter walked.. Same with Ace. I mean, why make better money with the real members when you can sell your band on the cheap and cut down your consumer base?

It's all short term thinking. "We'll make a bigger profit not having to pay them so much." Yeah, but then you sell fewer tickets and in the long run you actually make less money than if you had just paid people what they were worth in the first place.

It's like everyone is the CEO of a company now. "Lets fire people to up our profits and make the stock holders happy on the next quarter," without considering the fact that your destroying your own consumer base.

It's been blowing up on FB and the best thing to do is go to Sharon's FB page and bitch her out.  All the real fans know that she's pulled lots of shit in the metal community and she has 0 cred.  Even if she doesn't manage Sabbath, she manages OZZY and that means that the percentages were probably not fair.  As Bill already made a statement about that he signed something for the first time they did the reunion that he felt was unfair and he didn't want to do that again.  I can only imagine - she probably wanted an unfair amount for OZZY.

it seems crazy to me that they are letting money stop the reunion.
at this point in their lives, (past retirement age) they should be doing this for the fans and because it is truly the last round for sabbath.
blows my mind that greed is playing such a huge factor in this. 

4 founding members, doing one last tour and album together = 25% each across the board.  plain and simple. 

i doubt Ward is even looking for an equal cut either.  (although he deserves it). 

it's all centred around greed and ego......you'd figure these guys would have that stuff in check in their 60's!!!! 

bottom line.  No Bill Ward, no Sabbath reunion. 

I would have bought a ticket, but not a chance if its not the original 4.  I've seen the original lineup, why would I want to see a watered down version as my LAST Sabbath concert.  not gonna happen.  Guess the show  I saw in 2003-ish will have to suffice.

the biggest bummer in this is if they actually do record a new album without him.... what a shame.

Why they aren't offering the gig first to Vinny Appice makes no sense, but then again - look from where it's coming.  Sharon and Ozzy ERASED Kerslake and Daisley tracks on the BLIZZARD OF OZ and DIARY albums and re-released them with subpar shite performances to fuck them out of royalties.  So all fingers point to Ozzy's camp because of the track record.  If they had a fair and honest track record, people would be blaming the lawyers, but how can you help the fans not feeling that they are tired of the bullshit.  All the soccer moms who watch Sharon on talk show regular channel TV have no idea about how shady she is.  We are all happy she saved OZZY's life but beyond that she's greedy, not much different than Gene Simmons, except Gene has talent and Sharon doesn't.
