Default Re: Bill Ward

Ward is my greatest example of the drummer playing for the music. He's not trying to squeeze in unnecessary bits and pieces. He enhances the part, never overplaying.

I don't know if its a backhanded compliment or not but people often refer to him as a 'percussionist' rather than a 'drummer'.

To dumb it down would be to say that he's the perfect mix of Paice and Bonham with a stronger leaning towards Paice.
