It's always amazing to hear about the things that save someone's life. Whether it's deciding to live for a family member or friend, or for their art, or really whatever, it's something or someone that ultimately saved a life.
Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler recently opened up to Classic Rock about his issues with cutting in the past, and how Black Sabbath saved his life.
"I used to be a cutter. I'd cut my arms, stick pins in my fingers, that kind of thing. I used to get really depressed and it was the only thing that could bring me out from it.
"If Sabbath hadn't made it, I'd have been long dead. I'd have killed myself."
Can you imagine a world where we didn't have some of Butler's basslines? On top of the hurt his family and friends would've suffered through as well, which is obviously much greater. We're glad you're around, Geezer.
Just as a quick aside – if you or someone you know is struggling with depression, please find the strength to talk to someone about it.
