Reflections on Geoff Nicholls

Today has been an odd day for me.  I woke up to an email from Tony Iommi’s management telling me that Geoff Nicholls had died.  After I got the word out there, I started contacting others.  Former Black Sabbath band mates, and other people I knew that knew Geoff.  One of which was Jamie Mallender.

Last night was the second show of the 2016  tour, in Chicago.  A friend of mine went to the show, and texted me a couple of pictures.  Below are the pics.
