      I would like to give you all the chance to ask him some questions. I will be sending my questions in a couple of hours, so the sooner the better.

      Does an official demo, studio version, or live recording of "Scary Dreams" exist, and if so, will Black Sabbath please release it (even if it's to sell it as a single on ITunes)?

      Damn, I just noticed that two other people asked essentially the same question :-)
      Do you want to encourage the Sabb Four to release a studio, demo, or official live version of "Scary Dreams" (the thus far unreleased song they debuted/performed live during their 2001 Ozzfest tour)? If so, consider becoming a fan of Scary Dreams on facebook by clicking the below link:

        Shoopsy, good luck with the arrangement of an interview with Geezer.

        A few questions would include:

        1) What Black Sabbath songs are his personal favorites? What is his favorite Black Sabbath album?
        2) Which lyrics is he the most pleased with?
        3) Were there any ideas for a Sabbath song(s) that he wishes the band pursued?

          1. Why didn't Sabbath play in Asia beyond Japan?
          2. Will Sabbath one day jam on stage again like back in the 70s?
          3. Will Sabbath cover blues songs again?
          Do you hear the thunder raging in the sky?

            Thanks Sabman! great questions as well. Looks like it will happen. Should also be getting 'Rival Sons' if all goes well. Cheers!

              "I was just being logical," the bassist says with a laugh. "At the time, we were given six months to write and record an album and I said, 'There's absolutely no way we can do it in six months.'" He laughs. "Then they came up with, 'Well, you can do a blues album,' you know, just eight 12-bar blues songs and that's it. It's like, 'No. This is Black Sabbath. It's not the Earth blues band anymore.' It was ridiculous."

                Shoopsy, let us know how it works out. An interview with Geezer is a very cool thing.

                  What was the plan for Heaven & Hell & Black Sabbath prior to Ronnie James Dio's cancer diagnosis?

                  Is there a chance of Black Sabbath doing any live jams like you did in the 70's with 'Wicked World' & 'Sabbra Cadabra?'

                  Can you elaborate on the bar fight that you took part in January 2015?

                  What is your current status & opinion on marijuana & its legalization?

                  Will you continue to work with Tony Iommi after "The End" tour?

                  What (if any) modern bands do you listen to?

                  Did you know Lemmy Kilmister, and if so, how do you remember him?

                  At 66 years old, what is your advice to someone trying to make it as a rock bassist in a band for outcasts in 2016?

                  Any legendary Sabbath drug included exploits from the 70's you may want to elaborate on?

                    Will do - still waiting on confirmation.

                      I could get a lot more of these asked and answered if Geezer had time for a phone interview or to meet with me before a show.

                      Sadly, these will all be under close inspection by management and I'm doubtful that many Bill questions will be answered. I still tried.

                        Geezer, why isn't anything from the Sabbath Bloody Sabbath & Sabotage records being played live? Honestly, is it because of Ozzy's vocals? Even instrumental versions of 'A National Acrobat', 'Megalomania' & others would be great to hear.

                        What about 'Wicked World' or 'Planet Caravan'?

                        Thank you =)

                          He said in a recent interview they tried it to have the full Paranoid album, but it just didn't work out as a live song.
                          95% of everything i say is pure bullshit just for the fun of it. The other 95% is damn serious!

                            With the release, either as bonus track or songs included on the The End EP, what would your ideal tracklist (i.e playlist) for all the Black Sabbath songs recorded during the 13 recording sessions be?

                            In other words, if 13 were a double-CD album that included all of these tracks, in what order would you place them?

                              Please have respect and don't bring up Bill. He's probably sick of those questions

                                Sorry, post retracted, I'm just glad we got the four bonus tracks.
