    I've heard Gene tell this story before. I don't buy it. Geezer has seen things darker/weirder than anything Gene can conjure up. He might have been impressed, but I don't think he would have felt threatened or intimidated. He could have just as easily laughed at his getup.

    At least Gene, being Gene, still had respect for the Sabs taking them out.

      Many hours were idled away in that bar, where Butler spent one drunken evening playing darts with Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts. “We called the dartboard ‘Bill’s beard’,” Butler says, “because all the stuffing was coming out of it at the number 3 mark.”

      100% agree brother Sweet ,, and I personally never heard this before , thanks for clearing it up as nothing more than a "storytelling" .....



      WANT TO SMILE -

      On some copies of Sabotage, tacked onto the end of "The Writ" is a short 30 second or so song called "Blow on a Jug".
      Sadly enough the song doesn't appear on every 'SABOTAGE' version (it is on the copy of Sabotage in Black Box). Mark Jones (the secretary of Bill Ward) wrote the following: "Blowing On A Jug" was a little bit that was added to the end of one of the albums ['SABOTAGE']. It was Bill singing and playing the piano and was just something that the engineer caught during a session and it was put into the album. I'm not sure if it was the first time Bill had been caught singing on an album. He has sung "Swinging The Chain" and "It's Alright". Ozzy also sings on Blow On a Jug. The song is originally done by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. This from BSAS vol 4 p. 18: [The story behind it relates to the Hollywood festival SABBATH played at in 1970 where an amusing incident occurred while Mungo Jerry were playing. Apparently all of the other name acts like Free, Family and Traffic were, along with SABBATH, desperately trying to blow each other away by borrowing amps to outstrip one another. But who went down the best that day? Fucking Mungo Jerry! Ozzy said "He was playing fucking jugs and he stole the day! So it just shows you it doesn't matter what anybody thinks...after Mungo Jerry we didn't have a hope. Blowing on fucking jugs!" http://ultimateclassicrock.com/black...hidden-tracks/

        • Both great reads there Doc, thinking back when I read stuff like this and think when I first was discovering Sabbath and listening to the music, how I used to imagine all sorts of things and what the songs were about and made my own interpretations of what the songs meant to me.

          Sometimes happiness to me when I was younger was driving in my car listening to an entire Sabbath album on my car stereo cassette deck, which my Sabotage cassette had Blow On The Jug, just getting in my car going for a long drive listening to Sabbath.

          As dark as Sabbath was suppose to be, they brought me a lot of happiness and light into my world and still do to this day.

          There is no better lyricist than Geezer Butler.
          "Without Black Sabbath there never would have been an Ozzy, and without Ozzy there never would have been a Black Sabbath"
          "If there ever was a band whose voice is so significant and distinct, that band is Black Sabbath and the voice is Ozzy Osbourne"

                                Love all the Priest albums minus the Owens, which I haven’t heard so I can’t comment on them, the 70’s Priest is the best!
