RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE’S BRAD WILK TO PLAY DRUMS ON NEW BLACK SABBATH ALBUM
Former Rage Against The Machine/Audioslave drummer Brad Wilk will be the drummer on Black Sabbath’s new album 13, set for release in June. He will be filling in for original drummer Bill Ward, who backed out of the reunion for legal reasons last year. Wilk has a history with the producer of the album, Rick Rubin. Rubin produced Rage Against The Machine’s covers album Renegades and Audioslave’s first two albums.
Wilk isn’t expected to tour with Sabbath, as the band did not reveal who would drum for their 2013 tour dates. Tommy Clufetos from Ozzy Osbourne’s solo band drummed for Sabbath last year.
