Bill Ward Undergoes Emergency Surgery
Former Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward has had to postpone a recent gallery reception after needing to undergo emergency surgery. As the drummer's official website notes, Ward underwent surgery for a perforated diverticulitis in California. The surgery was successful, and he is expected to make a full recovery within a few weeks. Regarding the postponing of his gallery reception at the Annapolis Collection Gallery in Maryland on October 26th, Ward has issued the following statement: "I am truly sorry that I have to postpone the Absence of Corners gallery reception," said Ward. "The feedback I have received from everyone about this project has been astounding, and I was so looking forward to this event. I want to thank the Annapolis Collection Gallery for everything they are doing. I am honored that they are exhibiting my art, and I hope to get there to celebrate this collection with you all very soon." A perforated diverticulitis is a gastrointestinal condition in which the walls of the intestine have become perforated. We here at Ultimate-Guitar wish Bill Ward a speedy recovery.
