Good 'ole Bill!

BLACK SABBATH Online's Joe Siegler reports:

"Below is the text of an email I received from Bill
Ward regarding the recent anniversary of the death of
Cozy Powell..."

"Hi Everyone,

Thanks, Joe, for reminding us it's been ten years
since Cozy died. I think about him from time to time.
I've always been grateful that our last phone
conversation ended on a high note. I felt we were both
sincere with each other, sharing mutual respect when
touching on our individual histories in Hard

Over the years, death has sometimes come quickly to
old friends, and I've felt the pain and dilemma of not
returning a phone call as I would have liked to, but
didn't; not being able to say a proper good-bye in
life; being upset, or undone, or unresolved from the
last conversation, then feeling the loss of that end.
With Cozy, I felt we had the perfect ending
conversation. We talked from the heart. In hindsight,
our conversation seems gift-like, fitting perfectly
into the great order of things. Cozy died about ten
days after he and I spoke, maybe sooner, I'm not sure.

OK. Drum students - listen to this man. Check out the
band RAINBOW. Listen to 'Stargazer'. Cozy is a master.
Listen to the top of the song - that's Cozy Powell
playing. Discover this giant of rock drumming. He
lives forever on records and in our hearts.

Thanks, Coze - nice work.

Cozy was one of the greatest drummers to watch too - so damn stylish... he is sadly missed :(

I always wonder what Dehumanizer would have sounded like with Cozy. You can get an idea from the Dehumanizer demos bootleg. His playing on some of the Tony Martin Sabbath stuff is cool and of course Rainbow Rising kicks ass.
