Black Sabbath's new recruit talks to Rhythm...
In the last decade Tommy Clufetos has bagged an enviable list of rock gigs – Alice Cooper to Rob Zombie, Ted Nugent to Ozzy Osbourne.
But they all pale in comparison to his latest gig as he takes up residency behind the kit for Black Sabbath. Rhythm gets the lowdown from Tommy on replacing the irreplaceable Bill Ward, pounding arenas night after night and why he didn't play on Sabbath's new record.
Plus: We take a tour of Tommy's kit and find out why two bass drums are better than one!
