Last night was the “Bonzo Bash” Jam at the NAMM show in Santa Ana, California. It’s a collection of drummers who get together for a theme – that being to celebrate the late John Bonham. However, that’s not all that happened. They also gave Bill Ward a “Legend Award” at the show, too.
I wasn’t there, so I didn’t witness it, but I was sent these couple of pictures both of the award Bill received, and this candid photo of Bill speaking. Was anyone reading this in attendance and witnessed this – can you send in some details? I just found out about this a matter of minutes before I posted about it, and I didn’t want to wait on getting the news out, but I don’t have a lot of details here. Will update if I get some. UPDATE: There’s video of Bill talking – that’s below. No video of him playing yet, if anyone has some, let me know. Danke.
Check out the pics:
