The Used and Dead Sara invaded New York City last night to jam for a sold-out crowd at Irving Plaza.

When original Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward finally made the official announcement that he would not be joining the band for what would have been metal’s biggest reunion, the decision seemed to be more business-related instead of personal.
