Is This BLACK SABBATH's Last Tour?

After all the hullabaloo of a new record and tour, Black Sabbath members come to terms with the fact that this may be the end of the road for the band one last time.

Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler recently talked to the Chicago Sun-Times about the band, and in the interview he was asked about how the band would progress from the current tour, what the future plans were, and things like that. Butler responded pretty honestly: 

It's getting tough, it really is. I can't lie about that. I'm old now. It really is tough going on every night. You wake up next day, all the pains you never had before. I don't want to go onstage for the sake of the money. You have to have a lot pride in yourself, and I honestly think I'm coming to the end of the top of my job.

Guitarist Tony Iommi added about the situation, as well as his situation having received treatment for cancer:

Because of my treatments and stuff I can't commit to doing another two years or anything like that. I have to play it as it comes now.


I'm really enjoying it. If the rest of the year goes well, then we'll look at it and see if it's possible to do another album. It would be very nice to. You can't beat that feeling of walking onstage, especially with your old mates, you know. I think it's better than it was 40 years ago.

Big ups to Black Sabbath for even giving it a go this late in the game and doing it so well! 13 was a killer record for a band that hasn't done much in a long time leading up to it, and for that we've got to hand it to the group. Among all the other commendations one owes Black Sabbath simply for being Black Sabbath. It's also nice to see they're not just immediately calling it quits because the future remains pretty uncertain; apparently they're ready to give it their all until they can't anymore. Now if we could only get Ozzy to stop calling former drummer Bill Ward fat and out of shape, everything would be alright in the Black Sabbath camp…
