Sabbath - No Reunion!

Heaven & Hell

The story of a Black Sabbath reunion which was propagated throughout the internet yesterday following speculation in the Birmingham Mail simply wasn't true according to guitarist Tony Iommi.

In a statement released through his official website,, Tony says:-

"I'm saddened that a Birmingham journalist whom I trusted has chosen this point in time to take a conversation we had back in June and make it sound like we spoke yesterday about a Black Sabbath reunion.

At the time I was supporting the Home of Metal exhibition and was merely speculating, shooting the breeze, on something all of us get asked constantly, "Are you getting back together?"

Thanks to the internet it's gone round the world as some sort of "official" statement on my part, absolute nonsense. I hope he's enjoyed his moment of glory, he won't have another at my expense.

To my old pals, Ozzy, Geezer and Bill, sorry about this, I should have known better.

All the best, Tony"
