Butler’s Plans Post-Sabbath: Writing Autobiography

With Black Sabbath set to retire following their “The End” tour, it looks like Geezer Butler will then turn his attention to penning his autobiography.

In a recent interview with, Butler cites his grandchildren as the main reason for wanting to write his autobiography stating, “…By the time they are grown I’ll be long gone, and I’d like them to learn about me from my own hand rather than hearsay.”

Butler will be the third member of Black Sabbath to release a memoir, following Ozzy Osbourne’s I Am Ozzy and Tony Iommi’s Iron Man: My Journey Through Heaven and Hell with Black Sabbath
