  GEEZER BUTLER: "MY TIME IN BLACK SABBATH IS COMING TO AN END"
19th August 2013

Black Sabbath's reformation has been nothing short of a massive success with the comeback album '13' debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard album charts, and the ongoing extensive touring going extremely well.

Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler has performed phenomenally throughout the entire tour, but in a new interview, Geezer has revealed that the tour will likely be his last as his time in the band may be coming to an end.

Geezer told the Chicago Sun-Times: "I've always said as long as I can play, as long as I can do it to a good level, then I'll keep doing it, because I still really enjoy playing.

"I'll know when the day comes I can't do this anymore, can't play to my usual standards. That's when I won't go out anymore. I won't do that to me self. But at the moment, I just love playing with the band.

"It probably will be the last time, will probably be the last tour. But I want to go out on a high. The band is playing really well at the moment."

"I don't know. I just got a feeling," Geezer added after being asked why. "It's getting tough, it really is. I can't lie about that. I'm old now. It really is tough going on every night.

"You wake up next day, all the pains you never had before. I don't want to go onstage for the sake of the money. You have to have a lot pride in yourself, and I honestly think I'm coming to the end of the top of my job."





NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.
