Gitarrist Tony Iommi dementiert dies nun vehement:
"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 I 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 now 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."
Wir warten also gespannt auf den nächsten Akt im "Reunion ja oder nein"- Spektakel.
