GEEZER BUTLER (BLACK SABBATH, GZR): “Some Nights Are Like Playing To The Dead”

In 1995, Geezer Butler released the debut album, Plastic Planet, with his new band GZR (also known as G//Z/R and Geezer). Two years later he returned with Black Science, but this time the band was simply called Geezer. That needed some explanation and Geezer tells what happened in this 1997 interview. He also talked about getting Fear Factory vocalist Burton C. Bell on the first album, and why he didn’t stick around for the next. The Black Sabbath reunion was still up in the air, while Geezer felt like playing to the dead in the United States.

    Stig is the founder and the president of Metal Express Radio, based out of Oslo, Norway. He has been around doing Metal radio since the mid-eighties. In fact, running Metal Express Radio takes almost all of his time. Is it worth it...? "Most times, yes," Stig says. "My philosophy is to try to give all Metal releases a fair chance to get promoted in one way or another. As you can imagine, it can be an arduous task to listen through about 20 albums every week! Still, I know we have the best METAL dedicated radio on this planet, and that is a reward in and of itself. I hope one day the whole Metal community can and will make listening to Metal Express Radio part of their daily rituals! Yeah, right..."
