BLACK SABBATH bassist Geezer Butler has announced that he has completed work on the first draft of his upcoming personal memoir.
Yesterday (Wednesday, April 6), the iconic BLACK SABBATH bassist tweeted: “Just turned in the 1st draft of my book so I’m now thinking of titles. So far, I have: Into the Void, Basses Loaded, Past Forward, What The Butler Did, Bassic Instinct. Feel free to send me which of those you think would suit my #autobiography”.
Geezer had previously mentioned that he had begun writing a memoir in a talk with Cleveland.com a year ago, saying he had desires to write it “because when my parents died, I always wished I’d asked them a lot more things than I knew about. I don’t really know much about my mum and dad, ’cause they were always just there,” he explained. “So, I started writing a memoir for my grandkids to read, and that’s been fun going through stuff — old times and growing up in Birmingham and all that.”
As founding member of BLACK SABBATH, and aside from being the group’s hugely influential bassist, Butler was also the group’s primary lyric writer, which consisted of darker materials than what was commonly written about during the time of the band’s burgeoning years.
Butler, singer Ozzy Osbourne and guitarist Tony Iommi reunited in late 2011, releasing the comeback album, “13”, in June 2013.
In February 2017, BLACK SABBATH wrapped up their “The End” farewell tour in Birmingham, England, securing themselves as the forever pioneers of the genre we know as heavy metal.
