Happy Birthday! Bill Ward

Born on this day in 1948, William Thomas Ward, the English musician and visual artist, best known as the original drummer of Black Sabbath, turns 71. Ward is known for his very unorthodox style of playing the drums, often using snare-drills and tempo-drop to match both vocals and riff. In his honor, watch the 'Rock Family Trees' documentary, which traces the history of the world's most influential heavy rock band Black Sabbath.
