Geezer Speaks on Tony, New Album

This evening, Geezer Butler posted an update to his website, detailing some of the progress around the new album, as well as some remarks on Tony and his cancer diagnosis.  Check it out:

Greetings Earth people, 

Today [Jan19th] we got the engines back up and running @ Tony’s home studio. Far from being down and depressed about his lymphoma diagnosis, Tony had already written the music for two new songs, and I must say it has given us all a kick up the rump- it’s great to hear him churning out those riffs again, assuaging the Demon C. Takes more than that to stop Tony. Can’t wait for you all to hear our workings, it has been great working on this stuff. 

I want to thank the lovely encouraging emails sent to this site giving Tony love and encouragement and great vibes. It really does help, not only Tony, but us as a band- it raises up our spirits and restores our faith in this tarnished world. Sabb fans are good people, time and again you have proven your faith in us and boosted our endeavour. 

Thanks, love, peace.

    Don’t give up Tony!

  14. Hey guys,
    I’m sending positive vibes your way Tony, you can beat this, no problem.
    I’m 53 years old and have been listening to you guys since I was 11 or 12. In fact I bought my first SG, which I still have, when I was 14, and it was just because of Tony playing SG’s. I remember listening to Sabbath in my 68 Nova with my Craig 8-track player, a total of 8 earth shattering watts per speaker!! So to put it lightly I’ve been a fan most of my life, but I never saw you guys live until the reunion at Ozzfest in Albuquerque. It totally blew me away, the sound was absolutely fantastic! I was really looking forward to this tour so I hope everyone can work through the differences and Tony’s slight bump in the road, because the fans still love you guys.
    It’s a shame that four guys that love to play together and are icon’s in the music industry have to go through the pain of contracts and the business side of things. I know it’s necessary, but the fans just want to see you guys together, they don’t care about contracts and shit, they just love the music.
    Remember when you guys first got together, and that feeling of just wanting to play music? The feeling of actually doing your first riff together and it sounding good? Well that’s what the fans want to see. Just you guys having a good time together and doing what you do best.

    Peace \m/
