Re: Bill Ward
I love Bill Ward's Drumming, Vol.4 would be my favourite album for his drumming.
One of the things I think holds him back from being in the 'Bonham, Paice catagory' is his sound on the Paranoid & Master Of Reality albums, the toms sound awful for some reason, I mean the fills on War Pigs are classic stuff but when he goes on to his toms - they sound like cardboard boxes - Bizarre!? Never sure how much input he had into the sound & I'm sure some people love it, but not for me I'm afraid. Having said all that, Bill's still a huge influence on me & thousands of other drummers...
