I think I finally got the direction right. For the last seven years I have been writing tons of songs, but they are in different directions.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
I thought, well, Sabbath's finished now so I'm just going to do me own thing.

If you are a pop band, don't say you're a metal band. Poison and Warrant were about as metal as the Backstreet Boys.

If you polish things too much, it loses the feeling.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
It doesn't matter who you vote for. It's still the same billionaires that run the world.

It is nice all these years later to be still playing and be acclaimed for doing it.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
It seems like the older bands are bigger than ever. We get a mixed crowd where you have kids and old blokes like me.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
It was incredible to have that much enthusiasm for once, instead of going in and going, Oh, what are we gonna do on this one?
Quotation of Geezer Butler
It's certainly not music to make us millionaires. That's all I can say, just honest.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
It's totally produced now. It's almost like a conveyor belt of what metal's supposed to be like these days. It's not music to me.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
Jack Bruce, as soon as I saw him, it changed me. I didn't even know what bass players did until I saw Cream.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
Lately, I've been listening to some jazz albums. I love the new Pat Metheny album. John Coltrane. I still like good metal, though!
Quotation of Geezer Butler
Musically, we've gone back to the way it was in 1970. We sound a lot like that still.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
Nobody's ever gonna replace Bill Ward on the old stuff, because we just sort of grew together. I never even played bass until I met Bill.

People said we were wasting our time. They said, Go get real jobs. My parents threw me out. To have made the album, we said, Hey, look, we did this.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
Politicians are just there to give the public something that they think they're doing something about.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
The '80s were the worst period. You had these horrible pop bands growing their hair and calling themselves metal.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
The Geezer album, Black Science, had a lot of keyboards and it did not work.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
The high point was recording our first album. We had something concrete to say.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
The only reason I did the Ozzy album was because all I had to do was go in, put me bass down and that was it.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
To do the Ozzfest again would be great. I'd like to finish with a final Sabbath album. You always feel that it is still a challenge.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
To me, Sabbath was always JUSt a really heavy blues band. That s all we were. We just took those blues roots and made them heavier.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
Toward the later days of Sabbath, instead of going in and knocking out what songs we did in rehearsal, we would polish them to death.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
We experimented with bluegrass mixed with metal. It is a totally different sound but I want to get it right before I put it on album.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
We grew up in an era when you just could not be old.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
We had so many songs. We picked about 16 and worked on them. So we have been seriously working on them for about a year.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
We had two weeks in the studio, two days of which were rehearsals and we had never worked together before. Everybody was so into it.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
We just couldn't talk about it anymore in Sabbath. The easiest possible way without upsetting anybody was to just go along with it.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
We just used to go to the studio and jam for two or three hours and see what came out.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
We still have a following. It is nice to be able to play the old songs.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
We were into Hendrix and Cream, who were like the heaviest bands around at that time. We just wanted to be heavier than everybody else!
Quotation of Geezer Butler
We were just doing it for a laugh, really. We didn't think we'd make a career out of it. You don't realize how good it is at the time.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
We weren't going for any poet prizes. We just did it purely and simply for what we were feeling at the time.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
What I used to play was rhythm guitar before I saw Jack Bruce. I said, That's what I want to do in life. He was definitely the main influence.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
When I go into the studio it has to be raw and to the point.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
When we first got together there were loads of soul clubs in England and all anybody wanted to do was dance music, plus there were blues clubs.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
When we first started, people put us down, said we were not relevant, said our music was not real music, totally put us down.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
When you look back, you realize it has stood the test of time. It's really great to have that catalogue of work that I can look back on.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
When you realize you've got your own sound, you can just pick up on that and just keep it in one direction.
Quotation of Geezer Butler
When you see all of these bands citing you as influences, it makes you feel relevant.

Without a doubt, Ozzy is the craziest person I've ever met. Son of Sam is a close second.
