Black Sabbath bass player Geezer Butler has said the band’s current tour in support of their comeback album ‘13‘ could be their last.
Bandmate Ozzy Osbourne has spoken of his hope that the band’s 2013 studio album will not prove to be their swan-song but, in conversation with the Chicago Sun Times, Butler is less sure about the prospects of them continuing in a live capacity.
“I’ve always said as long as I can play, as long as I can do it to a good level, then I’ll keep doing it because I still really enjoy playing,” Butler said. “I’ll know when the day comes I can’t do anymore, can’t play to my usual standards.”
“That’s when I won’t go anymore. I won’t do that to me self. But at the moment, I just love playing with the band. It probably will be the last time, will probably be the last tour. But I want to go out on a high. The band is playing really well at the moment.”
Black Sabbath will be in the UK this coming December for an arena tour which opens up at the London O2 on the 10th.
