This actually sickens me...

That's a shame. Actually removing him from the site seems like too much. At least the rest of the group is continuing.

Absolutely ridiculous. I sincerely hope the other band members have nothing to do with it.
For some reason I'm thinking this is mostly Sharon, but nevertheless very sad indeed.

Seems like a major dick move by the band or whomever operates the website.

Personally, I think they all need to grow up, including Bill. He certainly had his part in this...... You would think 60+ year-old men would go about things in a better way. I guarantee you Sharon has quite a bit to do with this as well though.

It seems to me that the band members have nothing to do with what's going on. The people that run the site, the lawyers, and all the other people Geezer mentions are probably the ones to blame.

Talking about a soap opera...smells like $$$haron indeed. But I agree with Bryant they all should grow, musicians of this caliber fighting through representatives and lawyers, to get on stage and play

I started to believe that metal needs a soap opera to keep on going form time to time. So let's continue with All My Children of the Grave

Response To Geezer’s Statement

Dear Sabbath Fans and Musicians,

I have read Geezer’s statement of May 19, 2012 titled “Heavy Heart.” Out of respect for the Birmingham gig, I wanted to wait 24 hours before releasing this statement. There are some points he brought up which I want to respond to.

1) I had indeed notified Ozzy, Tony and Geezer, well before my first public statement, that I was having contractual difficulties.

2) I came out into a public forum to be accountable to the fans primarily, and to say at a public level there’s a problem. The band members stopped talking and corresponding with me some time ago, with the exception of a nice letter from Tony on my birthday. Prior to that, Geezer and I were corresponding, but that stopped abruptly in late February after I emailed a specific question to him.

3) In my statement of May 15, I clearly stated I would play Birmingham for free. That was not a problem – charity or otherwise.

4) My Download fee was not an extravagant amount. Originally, when Download was part of a full tour, I had asked for a decent fee. More recently, as we were negotiating just Download/Birmingham and Lollapalooza, I told my attorney that I would accept the proposed small Download fee, but there were other parts of the offer that were unsatisfactory.

I will continue to be honest and respectful towards the band and our fans. I will also confront any untruths about me, and any fault finding missions aimed at me that come to my attention.

I hope the band and the fans had a good gig in Brum.

Stay safe/stay strong.
Bill Ward
