A Brief Announcement

Posted on Jun.06, 2016, under Day of Errors

In the desire to have my drumming spirit continue to live, I’m pleased to say that I’ve helped to create a new three-piece band called “Day of Errors,” accompanied by two guest musicians playing keyboards and percussion.
 
We play loud, hard, with overtures of gut-kicking heavy, heavy parts.
 
Day of Errors lineup is:
 
Joe Amodea – Guitar/Vocals
Nick Diltz – Bass/Lead Vocals
Bill Ward – Drums/Vocals
 
Guest Musicians:
 
Walter Earl – Percussion
Aron Ward – Kybd
 
More information will follow.

H! Everyone,

I turned 68 years old on May 5th, 2016 so this month’s show will be my birthday show.  Wall-to-wall great Rock/ Metal music – all my favorite stuff.  Check us out  – it’ll rock.

Stay safe.  Stay strong,

Bill

Rock 50 Preview – Feb 2016

Posted on Feb.25, 2016, under Rock 50

Dear Everyone,
 
A belated Happy New Year to you all. Our radio show airs on Saturday, February 27, the first show of 2016. After such sad news over December 2015 and early January 2016, we at Rock 50 will be playing some commemorative music to rejoice and honor the lives of Lemmy Kilmister and David Bowie. In December 2015, we had planned that Phil “Philthy” Taylor, longtime drummer with Motorhead, would be our featured drummer for our drum segue – it’s going to rock, check us out. We also pay our deepest respects to the families and fans of Glenn Frey, Natalie Cole, Jimmy Bain and Maurice White. RIP. Their music will live on forever.
 
Stay strong,
Bill

“The End” Tour Response

Posted on Jan.25, 2016, under Black Sabbath

I must respond once again to inaccurate statements made by Geezer.  I never received an offer to play the final show of The End tour with Black Sabbath.  When the tour was confirmed, my management reached out to the Black Sabbath management to inquire as to whether or not they would like to discuss my participation in the tour.  We were told there was no interest. That is last conversation we had with them regarding the tour.

I will say that I wouldn’t want to play only one gig when I am completely capable of touring.  I would not validate their untrue statements about my health by playing only one gig.  Also, I wouldn’t want to show up for only some of our fans and not for all our fans when I could have played multiple shows.

— Bill

My family and I are deeply saddened at the news of Scott’s passing.  Our sincere condolences go to those who knew and loved him the most.   A great musician who brought great music to many.

RIP Scott.

In Regret,
Bill

November Rock 50 Preview

Posted on Nov.17, 2015, under Rock 50

H! Everyone,

Our Rock 50 show airs on November 21st, 2015.  In keeping with November 11th, Veterans and Armistice Day, our show will be in two parts, starting at 11 AM Pacific, the first hour will be Metal wall to wall.  Our second hour, around noon time, will be songs to honor the fallen of all wars since 1914 and the Armistice of November 11th, 1918.  We say thank you to the men and women who have served and survived.   We will remember the homeland suffering, as well as the bitter loss that war is.  We hope to bring an honorable and reflective mood to our last hour, and if you like hard-core Metal we’ll pound you in our first hour.  No drum segue this month or on our Christmas show.  Drum segues come back on our January 2016 show.

Stay safe.  Stay strong.

–Bill
