When I heard the news yesterday about a potential reunion of the greatest metal band of all time, Black Sabbath, I just couldn't contain myself.

But that looks like it isn't the case. I am very disappointed by the new of a reunion tour of the original lineup of Black Sabbath. It has been 33 years since we have heard any new material of Black Sabbath with Ozzy on vocals.I think after reading this it's kind of squashed.

According to iommi.com Toni Iommi has issued a statement saying,

"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"
