The Classic Rock Revisited web site has posted an audio recording of BLACK SABBATH drummer Bill Ward reciting the classic Christmas poem "'Twas The Night Before Christmas" as part of its Christmas special. Download the MP3 file at this location.Back in 2003, Ward released a limited-edition CD-single, the proceeds of which were donated to the charity of each purchaser's choice from one of five organizations. The single featured the track "Straws", which Ward wrote and recorded to express his concerns regarding the war with Iraq and the escalation of terrorism. A total of 2,200 copies of the limited-edition "Straws" CD-singles were produced in all, with Ward servicing 1,200 copies to governmental heads of state throughout the world, humanitarian organizations, peace support groups, media outlets and fellow musicians. Among those who received the special package were President George W. Bush, then-British Prime Minister Tony Blair, and members of the United States Congress.
