Original Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward has been hospitalized with heart problems. He says he’s “okay and in good recovery” but that he “never experienced this particular type of heart problem before.” His band Day of Errors were also forced to cancel their December US tour. Here’s Bill’s statement:

Hi everyone,

It’s with great, great sadness that I must tell you I have to cancel the Day of Errors tour dates scheduled in December. I wound up in hospital this past weekend with heart problems. I am okay and in good recovery at this time. However, I’ve never experienced this particular type of heart problem before, and due to its nature, I had to make the decision to cancel the dates. I want to send my sincere apologies to everyone who was planning to come out to the shows. I’m so sorry we won’t be making it — I was looking forward to seeing you all and sharing this music with you. I’ll be in touch soon.

All my love,

Glad to hear Bill is doing okay, and we wish him a full recovery!
