… for a bar brawl of all things. Ol guy’s still got it in him, eh?
This story broke last night, but I wanted to wait till I heard from Geez & Gloria themselves before saying anything. Apparently last night that Geezer had been arrested for a bar brawl. Some of the stories online say he was provoked, some don’t say anything, and probably due to (I’m guessing) legal advice, they’re not saying anything about the specifics.
Oddly enough, my mother from back home emailed me and said “Isn’t this the guy you do some work for?” That’s pretty funny that my mom (who keeps wishing I’ll grow out of this music) emailed me about this when at that point, I hadn’t heard about it. The bigger question is why my mom was hahaha. Anyway, a few minutes ago, Geezer himself finally had something to say on his various social media outlets:
Thx for your messages & support following the unfortunate altercation that occurred.— Geezer Butler (@GZRMusic) January 29, 2015
The response since last night seems to be pretty much in support of Geezer, mostly leaning towards the hilarious side with some of the responses. He’s also trending on Facebook – here’s the trending link. :)
Nice to see @GZRMusic still not taking any shit and throwing the Hand of Doom at the unworthy. Respect.— Dave -The Vile Grin (@Dave_VileGrin) January 29, 2015

@sabbathfans let him know that there's nothing to be worried about. Shit happens and it's nothing anyone should look down on him about.— Shawn Prosper (@Daewolf) January 29, 2015
