Black Sabbath's Bill Ward Recalls His Beatles Car Crash
He admits: "I was a bit under the influence and I was on my down to the pub to get some cigarettes. I was listening to A Day In The Life as I left our farmhouse, and I was already doing 90 when I accelerated more.
"I hit a bump and just went out of control. I ended up in the passenger's seat and managed to turn the engine off right before I went sky-high and rolled a couple of times.
"The car and I landed exactly on the last note of the song. I couldn't believe I was still alive, lying upside down in a ditch. It was terrifying – it sobered my ass right up." more on this story
