Ex-BLACK SABBATH Drummer Bill Ward Commemorates Las Vegas Shooting Victims With New Song "Arrows"
Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward is commemorating the second anniversary of horrendous Las Vegas shootings with a brand new song called "Arrows". The song features drummer Brian Tichy (ex-Ozzy Osbourne, ex-Whitesnake), bassist James LoMenzo (ex-Megadeth), guitarist Keith Lynch, and additional vocals by Sarah Dugas and Ezra Ward.
“In the evening of October 1st, 2017, there was a mass shooting in Las Vegas. What we’re going to do on October 1st, 2019 is we’re gonna release a song that I hope will be supportive. To me, it’s kind of like laying a wreath and sending the very best to everybody and wishing everybody well, the injured. It’s just a way of saying we’re very sorry that all those things happened and that we honor those who are not with us today.
“It’s a very solemn gesture, but at the same time, I’ve written a song that I hope can bring some solace and some good things to those who are still working through that particular shooting and those particular issues that they encountered because of the shooting.”
The Las Vegas shooting took place at the Route 91 Harvest Festival on October 1, 2017 when absolute coward Stephen Paddock shot more than 1,100 rounds of ammunition from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel. 58 were killed and 422 were wounded from the gunfire.
