Looks Like Black Sabbath Might Need A New Bassist…
That is, if they’re planning on reuniting, like Ozzy Osbourne said they might late last month. That’s because Geezer Butler says there is no way in fucking hell that the band’s getting back together…not as long as he has something to say about it.
Responding to ongoing rumors surrounding a possible Black Sabbath reunion, Butler issued a statement, saying that “I would like to make it clear, because of mounting speculation and rumors, that there will be definitely no reunion of all four original members of Black Sabbath, whether to record an album or to tour.”
Major Buzz Kill, reporting for duty. Guess Geezer’s not down to get the old band back together, and I’m not sure why. I mean, there’s money to be made there. Perhaps the dude’s actually concerned about preserving the band’s legacy, unlike certain other members of Sabbath. Namely, Ozzy.
But look — if there’s an offer on the table for a Sabbath reunion, I think chances are Ozzy and Sharon will do everything in their power to make it happen — they’re not the type to turn down cash. Perhaps that could mean enlisting another bassist for the job. But then, you couldn’t call that shit a reunion, could you?
