Black Sabbath To Bill Ward: Beat It

Bill Ward apparently had enough issues with the terms of the Black Sabbath reunion to throw a drumstick into the works.  In an online post about the prospects for him going forward with the album and tour, the drummer says that his willingness to participate depends on him getting a contract that, '...reflects some dignity and respect toward me as an original member of the band.'  Reading between the lines, it is easy suspect that his position reflects that Ozzy Osbourne's  name value to the credibility and success of both the album and concerts means that an equal share in the proceeds from both were not on the table for Ward, who called the contract he was presented 'unsignable'.  The other members of the group fired back that they will tour without Ward if he decides to hold out for a better deal.
