Black Sabbath’s Bill Ward talks about his current health status

Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward talked in an interview with Eddie Trunk about his current health status. The musician suffered many health issues over the last decades, including heart attacks.


Black Sabbath’s Bill Ward talks about his current health status:

“I don’t feel too bad. I wish I could get out and walk, to be honest. But I’m not going to do that. I’m playing air drums in the house, and I’m trying to really stretch my legs every day. My right knee has been a bit of a problem, so I’m using a bit of Tiger Balm on that. I could definitely use more exercise. Writing-wise, I’m writing like a demon, I can’t stop writing. I’m writing music, I’m writing some books, I’m writing poems…

“I just completed a new song, we have two records ready to come out, we have one unbelievable album from BWB ready to come out – all this stuff is mastered, it’s just been sitting there because we don’t know how to get it out into the world.”

He continued, saying:

“We know the ways of getting it out into the world, but we’re trying to find a way where we actually might be able to make some money, heaven forbid. We’re not looking to make millions of dollars. But it would be nice to have some way of presenting a product and actually getting some kind of payment for it.”

“Sounds old-fashioned, but I actually believe in that. I believe that for other musicians as well, so if that gives me a kick in the ass by some of your listeners, then I don’t really care, they can do whatever they want.””

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
