Heaven & Hell drummer speaks on the bands future, Dio, Black Sabbath, and Ozzy recently conducted an interview with legendary Heaven & Hell drummer Vinni Appice. Here are a few excerpts from the interview: Is Heaven & Hell done or might you continue with guest singers?

Appice: “If it’s going to happen we would re-name the band. The Heaven & Hell named signified a lot for Ronnie. It’s Ronnie’s era of Sabbath not Ozzy’s and that’s why we didn’t call it Black Sabbath, so people wouldn’t get confused about it. It would be funny to keep the name Heaven And Hell and for Ronnie not to be there.” Plus, there probably would be a backlash from the fans.

Appice: “Yeah, that too.” When do you think the band might continue?

Appice: “I’m not sure what they have it mind. It was mentioned, but no action has been taken yet. I would imagine that IF something happens – it would be this year. Tony loves playing. He’s a musician and he loves to play. He was happy playing and being on stage (with H&H). Geezer is the same way. We toured so much that we built ourselves up both musically and physically.”
