Geezer is writing his autobiography


Geezer Butler revealed to Ricky Aarons of Australia’s Wall Of Sound that he is currently working on his autobiography.

“(the lockdown period) This is the longest I have been home in fifty years. My dogs and cats are loving it — not so much my wife. Based here in Los Angeles, I have ventured out on some amazing road trips, mainly in Utah, my favorite state in the USA, but apart from that I’ve read [a lot] of books, watched a lot of TV, eaten too much, and dabbled with various new basses — mainly five-, six- and even seven-string basses.”

As for what’s next for the legendary musician, Butler said: “I’m currently putting together a book about growing up in Aston, Birmingham and how Sabbath came about… but I’m really enjoying semi-retirement and not having to do anything or be anywhere, especially after being away from home for most of the last fifty years.”

Butler’s three solo albums — “Plastic Planet” (1995), “Black Science” (1997), and “Ohmwork” (2005) — will be made available for the first time ever on vinyl, with both CD and LP using newly updated cover artwork, via BMG on October 30.
