Joe, Sorry that it’s been so long. We have been locked away in a studio doing albums and then the holiday season hit us.

I wanted to give you Bill’s mailing address. If you want, you can list it on your site for fans to contact him. It is, PO Box 3624, Seal Beach, CA 90740.

If they want to contact us via e-mail, they can drop me a line at, or, or on Compuserve at 72613,2524. We get to the mail whenever we can and sometimes we have a backlog, so a reply is not always immediatae.

We finished "When The Bough Breaks," and we are hoping to have it on the streets in March of this year. Currently we are going through the process of negotiating the final details of a contract with a record company here in CA. It’s not a major, and until we all sign on the dotted line, I can’t give you any more info than that. Will let you know when we do though.

Another album will be released in September of 97 and in between, Bill wants to go on tour. All this tour stuff is of course speculative at the moment but that’s the plan.

Also in March, Bill hopes to have his own website up and running to coincide with the release of the album. With your permission, we’d like to include your site on the links.

That’s about it for now. If you need more info, please let me know.

Thank you for maintaining the Sabbath site.

I will post more news about Bill Ward when I get it.
