Bill Ward, drummer for metal legends Black Sabbath, says that the band members were very close in the early days. So close, in fact, that he says the members even had the exact same dreams as each other.
Ward gives one example to Classic Rock:

“Black Sabbath were so tight, we’d have the same dreams. It happens when you’re in a room transferring things to each other musically all day, so we’d end up having similar dreams. One of the dreams we had was being visited by a priest, or a spectre, and I just saw that as a guardian angel.”
Ward says the dreams affected his own way of looking at things:
“When we finished Black Sabbath rehearsals at the Aston community center, I had feelings inside telling me a few things. We were different, and it didn’t matter if we became famous. I knew what we’d made would cause a few problems but also earn us great affection, and I’m so fucking proud of that.”
