Ex-Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward cancels dates due to heart issues

Paul Archuleta/FilmMagicFormer Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward has canceled a string of upcoming U.S. dates with his band Day of Errors due to health issues. 

On his Facebook page, Ward writes, “I wound up in hospital this past weekend with heart problems. I am okay and in good recovery at this time. However, I’ve never experienced this particular type of heart problem before and due to its nature, I had to make the decision to cancel the dates… I’m so sorry we won’t be making it.”

Ward parted ways with Sabbath several years ago but it was never clear if his dispute with the band was due to health issues or contract disputes. He released a solo effort, Accountable Beasts, in 2015 and formed Day of Errors just last year with guitarist Joe Amodea and singer-bassist Nick Diltz.
