A Very Black Cinco De Mayo

5 May

We won the war!

OZZY and band

I want to congratulate the Mexican army for their fearless and unexpected victory over the French forces at the Battle of Puebla. What? That was 148 years ago. Oh. Well, great job Mexico. Yes, today is the voluntarily-observed holiday of Cinco De Mayo. The day, like St. Patrick’s day, has become synonymous with drunken revelry. It is also Bill Ward’s birthday. Ward, 62, is the original and current drummer for Black Sabbath, and, as one YouTube member put it, “is God.” Maybe not God (we will reserve that for Clapton), but he is certainly a very skilled and under-appreciated drummer. So, Happy Sabbath Birthday to Bill Ward, may all your “War Pigs” come true.
