Five minutes alone with Black Sabbath's Geezer Butler

As Sabbath release new box set The Ten Year War, Geezer reflects on life after the end

How did it feel bowing offstage with Sabbath for the last time this year?

“It felt like the right thing to do. Tony decided he didn’t want to tour anymore, and after what he’d been through with his lymphoma treatment, I fully respected his decision. It was good that we went out at the top of our game, and with our friendship intact. It was sad, for me, to say goodbye to touring, as I really enjoy travelling and playing all over the world. It didn’t really hit me that it was all over until I got home. I felt quite lost for a few weeks after the final show.”
