Nice interview. Thanks.
hi, I'm a writer for Back Page Magazine and we just conducted a sweet interview with Bill Ward.
We sat down with Bill to discuss the infamous/legendary "Black Zeppelin" session...and he revealed some pretty awesome details about that fabled event!
This has been a rumor for decades, as I'm sure you all know, but we got some firsthand reports from Ward himself about Sabbath's studio session with Led Zeppelin...the stuff of legend!
Feel free to share the link around we're pretty excited about the interview.
Good interview, great read
I don't need wings to reach the sky
And I don't need hands to hold you tight...

Cool stuff!, Thanks jb.
Are you saying boo, or boo-urns?
Looks like a great day but no recording to release but still a nice piece of rock journalism,
I remember reading something about this Zeppelin and Sabbath meeting before. According to the other version (and I don't remember the source so I'm not saying I believe it) Jimmy Page was involved, the session was recorded, but the next morning the tapes had disappeared. Like I said, I don't remember now where I heard that, nor do I necessarily believe it.
Nonetheless, thanks for the interview with Ward. Very interesting.
Great stuff! Thanks for the awesome read!

Great interview. It's good to have this rumor finally straightened out.
"There's no need to have a reason...there's no need to wonder why"
My foggy memory seems to recall that Bill talked about this in one of the Sabbath books out there (maybe the first Martin Popoff one) and that this interview doesn't give much new information about it. I don't know, when Bill can't remember what album they were working on at the time it makes me question the other details. Cool interview anyway, thanks for sharing it, always good to hear what Mr. Ward has to say.
Here here, fully support that sentiment
great to have his memories on paper for all,i've talked with bill many times and almost word for word he told me the same memories,one thing i remember him telling-"just to add to the story" was bonzo came to his house kind of upset that robert plant was working with
geezer,bill said he had to assure him,it was just for fun "nothing will come of it".
that's another recording session i'd love to hear geezer n' plant.
thank you billy,ur the best!
