Seems a lot of fans feel pissed off about the whole Black Sabbath without Bill Ward situation, so much in fact that they’re willing to do the only thing that really counts: gathering on a Facebook page!
No, seriously there’s a Facebook page called 1,000,000 Black Sabbath fans say yes to Bill Ward which has been making news lately because it was made to show off the discontent most Black Sabbath feel about this whole “reunion without one member” thing. There’s also an online petition organized at change.org, so you can check that out as well.
Now, I don’t want to be the cynical asshole, and I actually liked the page myself (and I’d recommend everyone else doing it as well, it’s better than just bitching), but I’m not sure how well this will work. Currently, the people who liked the page amount to about a show and a half the band could do on the tour. What’s I’d suggest doing, and don’t take this advice unless you’re really butt hurt about this: Boycott the tour. That’s where the biggest money is, and that’s the only thing that might send the message across. If you bought the ticket, ask for a refund, because you’ve most likely bought it when the shows were branded as the “reunion” tour, which the new one won’t really be.
In short: #OccupySabbath! I AM THE 25%! Let us know if you have any other ideas. Tag your tweets with my highly original protest hashtag.
