Original Black Sabbath Drummer Bill Ward Has Been In The Studio ‘Making Records’

Bill Ward, the founding drummer of Black Sabbath, recently announced that he is actively working in the studio, creating new records. In a video message shared on social media, the 75-year-old expressed his New Year wishes and introduced his studio team, including Bill, Mikey, and TJ. He acknowledged the current challenging times and expressed a desire for peace and safety in the year 2024.

Ward’s recent years have seen him venture into poetry, with some works inspired by the COVID-19 pandemic and others celebrating holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas. Despite initially being part of Black Sabbath’s reunion over a decade ago, he withdrew due to contractual disputes and claims of unfair terms. The other band members, Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, and Geezer Butler, suggested that Ward’s physical condition was a contributing factor to his absence from the reunion and subsequent activities, including the “13” LP and tours. Ozzy Osbourne mentioned that Ward’s role as a drummer was physically demanding, and there were considerations to have a second drummer to support him.

Despite these challenges, Ward continued his musical journey. In 2015, he released “Accountable Beasts,” his first solo album in 18 years, and in 2017, his band Day of Errors debuted two songs. They followed up with two more tracks in 2019, showcasing Ward’s enduring passion and contribution to music.
