  2. No Bill Ward = no support from me.
  3. Yeah, without Ward it's not exactly a 'reunion'. I am interested in hearing the album but I dont think I'll be spending $$ for a tour that isn't the entire band although I saw the Mob Rules tour back in 1981...

    I gotta admit I"m disappointed by the Bill thing too. It's not gonna stop me from checking it out. I did get to see the four of them together once. Anyone have the inside scoop on what happened with Bill? Was it strickly money or did it relate to previous problems touring?

  6. He said he wasn't offered a fair contract.

    Saw em at download festival last year without Bill Ward. They were absolutely fantastic. No doubt would have been better with Bill but the drummer they had stand in for him was absolutely incredible.

    Looks like Brad Wilk, the drummer for RATM did the drumming on the record. I was hoping for Bill,or at least Vinny Appice. Should be interesting no matter what.

    Saw them at lollapallooza last year and they were incredible. I will buy the record and have high expectations for it. I hope they go for an old school sound.
