Black Sabbath Song Helped Bill Ward In The Hospital

(Classic Rock) Estranged Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward says the band's track Cornucopia helped him through his hospital stints in 2013. During his time in hospital, Ward listened to Cornucopia from 1972 album Vol. 4 every day. He insists he's fit enough to play the song again, but hearing it on his iPod at the time was therapeutic.

Celebrating his 67th birthday on his Rock 50 radio show, Ward says: "On a personal note, when I was having some problems in the hospital in November and December - I'd gone through the operations, the first of the operations I had in November and December of 2013.

"I had my iPod and the one song I played practically every day was Cornucopia. It really helped me along to listen to it. I was in pretty bad shape, and I wanted to listen to what I used to be like, at that time. Now I can play it again, though. The bad days have gone. It's passed. But it really helped me when I was in the hospital listening to that song on the iPod." Read more here.
