With Vinny Appice in Kill Devil Hill and Mike Bordin in FNM hopefully they can get a suitable replacement. Too bad Vinnie Paul is doing that awful HellYeah gig as he would be a good fit. His drumming on the Black Sabbath covers that Pantera did was damn near perfect.
There are indeed a few good replacements, but as Napoléon once said "l'histoire se répète"... Besides, the last time Bill played on a studio album was Tony's first solo album, "Iommi", in 2000. On one track.
