It appears lingering fallout over the lower pay Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward stood to collect compared to Ozzy for the Black Sabbath reunion has cost him a spot in the lineup for the farewell tour. Ward's apparent dispute with Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne led him to refuse to play drums on the group's reunion album. Ward's subsequent scathing review of the album (story) made it very unlikely he'd be invited back for the farewell tour. The band has made that official with the announcement that Tommy Clufetos, Osbourne's solo band drummer, will be on the kit for the final Black Sabbath tour.
