Geezer Butler Says Black Sabbath Considered Making a Blues Album As a Follow Up to "13"


Geezer Butler mugshot Black Sabbath's Geezer Butler has revealed that the band had considered recording a blues album as a follow up to their 2013 comeback album "13."

Butler stated in a recent interview with Music Radar his thoughts about a follow-up to the band's previous recording: "The follow-up to '13' was going to be a blues album, but the tour got in the way. It would take something like two or three years to do it properly, and we thought we might not all be here by that time, so it would be better to do this final tour first and then maybe we'll do a blues record later."

The interviewer pointed out to Butler that it wouldn't take as long for Sabbath to make a blues album if it was done "jam style," to which Geezer replied: "Probably not. You'd have to make it varied instead of doing ten tracks of the same old twelve-bar blues though. But even back in the 'Heaven And Hell' tour days, Tony would go up into his lead and we would just jam around blues riffs for eight or nine minutes. And every night was different. So that is a thought."
