    Love ya Bill! Joe Morello passed away the other day … Saturday March 12, 2011. I know he was an influence of yours, and definitely one of mine. God Bless Him!

    I have started studying your methods under the microscope for some time now. Phenomenal! Your era, what you did, is such a piece of gold in rock music history. Thank you!

    I’ve learned from lots of artists over the years …. but I gotta say you are the most dynamic. The old recordings are difficult to deconstruct, but I do my best from experience. I wish more people could hear the percussive nuances you accomplish. For example, the original version of The Wizard … I have played it about 500 times in the last few months, dialing it in. You are a blast man!

    I am hoping to form a tribute someday that does your style purist justice. There are bands out there covering Black Sabbath and they groove, but I got to amp it up proper if I get it together. You guys – Black Sabbath – grew up listening to blues and jazz and it shines like a star in your methods. I pick it dry like a soup bone, to find every click, every flam, every everything you’ve done on recordings. The intricacies are so over the top …. I don’t think modern drummers hear it, let alone take it to another evolving level as an integration of their own style. Maybe I am wrong there. IN any case, you are great man!

    I really been working on it! Really!

    Peace Bill! Please live a long long long time man! We love ya!
