Estranged BLACK SABBATH Drummer BILL WARD Launches New Band Called DAY OF ERRORS

Estranged BLACK SABBATH drummer Bill Ward has helped create a new new three-piece band called DAY OF ERRORS. The group, which was formed by Ward “in the desire to have my drumming spirit continue to live,” also features Joe Amodea on guitar/vocals and Nick Diltz on bass/lead vocals.

Ward says: “We play loud, hard, with overtures of gut-kicking heavy, heavy parts.”

DAY OF ERRORS lineup is:

Joe Amodea – Guitar/Vocals
Nick Diltz – Bass/Lead Vocals
Bill Ward – Drums/Vocals

Guest musicians:

Walter Earl – Percussion
Aron Ward – Keyboards

Ward was on board for the SABBATH reunion when it was first announced in November 2011, but backed out soon after. He later claimed that he sat out the recording and touring sessions because of unfair contractual terms, although the members of SABBATH have hinted in other interviews that he wasn’t physically up to the task.

SABBATH has used singer Ozzy Osbourne‘s regular touring drummer Tommy Clufetos since then for live work. RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE‘s Brad Wilk laid down the drum tracks on the band’s comeback album, “13”, which came out in June 2013.

It was rumored that SABBATH wanted to bring a second drummer on the road to share duties with Ward, which he allegedly balked at.

Asked in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine if he would be in shape right now to rejoin BLACK SABBATH, Ward responded: “Absolutely, yeah. I have no doubt in my mind. I know that they’ve suggested that I played half the gig, and I don’t want to play half the gig. I’m quite capable of playing a complete fucking BLACK SABBATH set. So this health thing has been bandied around, and it’s true that I have heart disease, and it’s true that I did get sick a couple of years after the fact. But when the health card is being thrown around, the bottom line is that I really tried to take care of myself. Every day, I always look at the day and say, ‘Could I have played a gig today no matter what’s going on with me?’ And the answer is always, ‘Yes.’ I’m much harder on me than those guys could ever be.”

Just having a play today. #Sabian. 15"&16" hats 22" HH power bell ride 22" AA med crash 20" AAX metal crash.
