Black Sabbath's Bill Ward Plays For The First Time Since Surgery
In September, 66-year-old Ward went through an operation to deal with a longstanding problem with his right shoulder. But just four days later, he was back in hospital for emergency stomach surgery to treat a condition called diverticulitis - an extremely painful inflammation of the colon.
Ward tells Black-Sabbath.com: "I haven't played a kit of drums since I had the shoulder operation on September 8, 2013. I just played a little bit of jazz. Somebody had brought a kit of drums into the gallery. I played for eight or nine minutes. It wasn't too bad, it was a nice surprise. I was wondering how it might be not playing for a while with the injuries that I've sustained... But today we sat down and it wasn't bad." more on this story
