Emerson, Lake & Palmer and Asia legend Carl Palmer confirmed that Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi approached him to play drums with the band on their reunion album "13."
Original Sabbath drummer Bill Ward isn't taking part in the reunion that features original frontman Ozzy Osbourne, Iommi and Geezer Butler, after he was unable to come to contractual terms with the band.
The band finally settled on former Audioslave drummer Brad Wilk to record the drums on the album. But it was previously disclosed that producer Rick Rubin wanted Cream's Ginger Baker, to play drums in the band but Iommi reportedly rejected the idea. We now learn that Iommi had another famed drummer in mind, Carl Palmer.
