I mean, not counting vocals, what did I really have to work with? Do you still have any of it? I pulled it out, and it just gripped the ends and pulled them off. It was strange to look at it like that.

Nothing quite says Christmas like Black Sabbath, so this book should be a welcome present under the tree for that metal fan in the family. No body was ever found, but unfortunately his book parodies were. In England, their Laney amplifiers give maximum performance, but over here the different ground setup causes the stacks to hiss and growl and perform below average.

You may not remember this, but and I brought along a little six-inch amp so we could do a few lessons for the magazine. What astounded us more was that people understood what we were trying to do and supported us.
Clawing their way up from the postwar bombed-out suburbs of Birmingham, the four members - guitarist and main songwriter Tony Iommi, bassist and main lyricist Geezer Butler, singer Ozzy Osbourne, and drummer Bill Ward - would define a new genre of music and make themselves world famous. But those days are over, and Iommi can look back calmly. But as soon as they stopped, we just fell off, you know?

And I had to find a proper balance between how high the strings could be on the fretboard and how low the frets could be. And from those ashes arose something completely original.

His first aspiration was to be a drummer, but owing to lack of funds, he turned to a lessexpensive instrument. All these people from all over the world came to see us, including many that followed us from the very beginning, and you could see they were upset and crying, so it was an emotional experience. We were trying to give fans a last chance to hear us play some of our favorite songs for that last time. How would you assess Geezer Butler as a bassist.
