Black Sabbath's Geezer Butler Says a Black Sabbath Reunion is Unlikely


January 10, 2018

The last BLACK SABBATH tour, which was dubbed “The End,” pretty much left no doubt that it was, indeed, the end for the pioneering heavy metal band; however, just to be clear, bassist GEEZER BUTLER has confirmed that, moving forward, there will not be any more reunions with his bandmates TONY IOMMI & OZZY OSBOURNE. 

Butler offered up his opinion in response to a comment made by Iommi in November of last year, when the guitarist stated that it might be "possible" that they would record a new (Sabbath) album and maybe make a festival appearance here and there. Butler acknowledged that any sort of reunion isn't likely to happen, saying it’s “not very likely at all.” He further reasoned that not only will Osbourne be out on his farewell tour for the next 2-3 years but Sabbath also went out on a high note, and he’d rather keep it that way.

Currently, Mr. Butler is enjoying his free time doing a bit of globetrotting in the U.S. and Europe (as a tourist), and he is also starting to organize a bunch of musical ideas and riffs that he has stockpiled over the years in the hopes that “Maybe next year I'll put them together and hopefully put out another album.” Black Sabbath fittingly concluded The End Tour in their hometown of Birmingham, England, in February of 2017 and issued their concert DVD, The End of The End, this past November. Rock on!
