Black Sabbath: Bill Ward Discusses "Master of Reality" and "Born Again" in new 62 Min Podcast

On a very special episode of the "Glory Is Noise" online radio show, host Joel Gausten welcomes legendary Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward for a discussion on the upcoming 40th anniversary of Sabbath's "Master Of Reality" record, the recent deluxe re-release of the band's 1983 album "Born Again" and Bill's ongoing work with charities. The 62-minute episode can be heard on this location

A founding member of Black Sabbath, Bill Ward played drums on the band's first nine albums before departing in 1980 to begin an ultimately-successful battle against addiction. After briefly returning to Black Sabbath in 1983 for the "Born Again" sessions, he left the band again to pursue a solo project that has so far produced two albums (1990's "Ward One: Along The Way" and 1997's "When The Bough Breaks"). He rejoined Black Sabbath for a reunion of the original lineup in 1997 and has remained with the band ever since. In 2002, he released "Straws", a special CD single sold to raise funds for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, the Alice Faith Mittelman Foundation, the Children Affected by AIDS Foundation and the National Veterans Foundation. In addition, Ward has appeared in several music-related books, including Joel Gausten's 2010 release, "From Satan to Sabbath: The Metal Interviews 2000-2009", available at this location.
