This weekend’s edition of legendary BLACK SABBATH drummer Bill Ward‘s radio show “Rock 50” included his tribute to the Paris attack survivors and a few words about late MOTÖRHEAD drummer Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor, who died on November 11 at the age of 61.
Speaking about terrorist attacks in France that left 130 people dead, Ward read the following statement during his radio show: “This is from ‘Rock 50’ and my family. We send our deepest condolences to the families of those whose lives, on Friday, November the 13th, were horribly cut short. Our respect and sincere wishes go to all those who are surviving and recovering from their physical injuries. Our hearts are sad and we are moved by the courage of the survivors of the Paris attacks. Their outlook and resilience is a stark contrast to the world’s shock, fear and outrage. Leading with a healing response, the survivors have shown an extraordinary example of love and tolerance. We can learn from them. They are to be admired and commended for such selfless enlightenment in the face and shadow of a self-defeating tyrannical sickness.”
