Original Sabbath skin-thunderer ( ... drummer) Bill Ward is saltily boycotting the group's reunion and new Rick Rubin–produced album, which is exactly what Ward did when the metal pioneers got back together with Ronnie James Dio a few years ago. "I'm very, very sorry that it's fallen to this," Ward blogs (via ArtsBeat), referencing an unsignable contract and "the failure to remember where we came from, the failure to be as brothers." Somewhere, Ozzy is mumbling his fuck-peppered disappointment.
