Tony Iommi Wishes Bill Ward A “Speedy Recovery”

Wednesday, 16th October 2013

As previously reported, former BLACK SABBATH drummer Bill Ward recently suffered a perforated diverticulitis and underwent surgery in California. The procedure was successful, and Ward is expected to make a full recovery over the next several weeks.

Ward’s former bandmate Tony Iommi has passed along the following well-wishes: “Sorry to hear you’ve been unwell hope you make a speedy recovery.”
Subsequently, Bill Ward’s artist reception on October 26 at the Annapolis Collection Gallery in Maryland has been postponed.

“I am truly sorry that I have to postpone the Absence Of Corners gallery reception (scheduled for October 26th),” said Ward. “The feedback I have received from everyone about this project has been astounding, and I was so looking forward to this event. I want to thank the Annapolis Collection Gallery for everything they are doing. I am honored that they are exhibiting my art, and I hope to get there to celebrate this collection with you all very soon.”

The gallery and Bill Ward have agreed to find another date in the future which will allow him time for a complete recovery.
