Ultimate Jam Night To Welcome Black Sabbath's Bill Ward & His New Band

Ultimate Jam Night, the weekly free music show held at the Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood, will be featuring original Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward with his new band Day of Errors on Tuesday, June 28.

On June 6, Ward announced the formation of Days of Errors on his website: "In the desire to have my drumming spirit continue to live, I’m pleased to say that I’ve helped to create a new three-piece band called 'Day of Errors,' accompanied by two guest musicians playing keyboards and percussion."

"We play loud, hard, with overtures of gut-kicking heavy, heavy parts," the drummer added to his statement.

Day of Errors features Ward on drums and vocals, along with Joe Amodea on guitar and vocals and Nick Diltz on bass and vocals, plus Walter Earl on percussion and Aron Ward on kybd.

Ward was supposed to be part of Black Sabbath's 2013 reunion with Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler, but after the drummer was offered what he termed as an "unsignable contract," the reunion of the original lineup was derailed.

Ward was released from recording the band's 2013 comeback album, 13, and the subsequent concerts that followed, including the current "farewell" tour billed as 'The End'.

In 2015, the drummer released Accountable Beasts, his first solo album in over 20 years. He also held an exhibition of art based on his drumming in Los Angeles.
