This might be news to some of you, but Black Sabbath liked to do drugs. Some of their songs are even about doing drugs.I'm sorry if your image of a clean-cut Black Sabbath has been ruined.
Speaking of doing drugs Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler recalls to Metal Hammer the first time he ever did acid. Which he said didn't go so well. Butler said he thought he was a skeleton, that flowers were trying to get into the band's van, and that the crowd was actually waves because he was really on a boat.
"Probably when I took my first acid. It was actually enough for four people, but I didn't know, and we had a gig the next day. I thought I was a skeleton, I got in the van and they all went, 'What's wrong with you?' I said, 'Can't you see? I'm a skeleton!'
"We were driving along and there was a park on the side of us with all these flowers in it, and I thought the flowers were trying to get into the van.
"I went on stage and thought it was on a boat and the crowd were waves. It was horrendous. I was watching my hand playing the songs and I thought it wasn't connected to my body. Scary."
It should be noted that you should not take four times the amount of any drug, recreational or otherwise.
