Ozzy Osbourne was a guest on Billy Morrison‘s (BILLY IDOL, THE CULT, CAMP FREDDY) radio show, “Billy Morrison’s Dirty Little Secrets”, last Wednesday, September 18 on TradioV.com. You can now watch the program below.

BLACK SABBATH will release a new DVD, “Live… Gathered In Their Masses”, on November 26 via Vertigo/Republic. The set will contain footage of the band’s April 29 and May 1, 2013 concerts in Melbourne, Australia in support of SABBATH‘s long-awaited reunion album, “13”.

The disc, which came out this past June, became the first SABBATH album in the band’s 43-year history to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard chart. RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE drummer Brad Wilk played drums on the CD after Bill Ward sat out the sessions. While money was believed to be an issue, Ward was reportedly also upset that the group wanted another drummer around anyway to back him up if he was physically unable to get the job done.

Ozzy told The Pulse Of Radio that Ward being out of shape was the main reason he’s not on the record. “Bill Ward has got the most physically demanding job of the lot of us, ’cause he’s the timekeeper. I don’t think personally he had the chops to pull it off, you know. The saddest thing is that he needed to own up to that, and we could have worked around it, whether we had a drummer on the side with him or something. But I suppose it was something to do with finances as well.”
