In fact, I do respect him and love his playing style. Bill (Ward) is the mastermind and heart of heavymetal drumming.
Some Colleagues, will say that the foundation of rock drumming began with DJ (Fontana) and set by John (Bonham) - Ian (Paice) - Carmine Appice...and so on, I agree with that comment. For me, William Thomas Ward set it - built it and developed it for heavy rock drumming.
