A representative for BLACK SABBATH guitarist Tony Iommi has confirmed that the highly anticipated and much-rumoured reunion of Iommi, Ronnie James Dio, Geezer Butler, and Bill Ward appears to be shaping up and taking a new form. After various promoters have approached the former SABBATH bandmates' respective representatives, the guys have started taking all of this very seriously, as they have apparently wanted to reunite for some time now. It looks as if the new shape may be that of HEAVEN AND HELL — that is the moniker that the band is likely to use on their new venture. If all goes well, HEAVEN AND HELL should be hitting the road in early 2007.

ANDY TAYLOR has left DURAN DURAN for the second time due to the time honoured ‘musical differences’.
