Geezer Butler, Ozzy Osbourne and Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath Steve Appleford of Rolling Stone reports:

Black Sabbath bassist/lyricist Geezer Butler has a theory about why Grammy voters gave the metal originators their second Best Metal Performance award, this time for God Is Dead? from the band’s 2013 reunion album, 13. “Probably the question mark,” Butler told Rolling Stone. “It’s a marvelous song. It should have won all of them, even the hip-hop thing.”

Now that they have won the Grammy award, could the band’s future could easily include a return to the studio for another album?

“We’re going back on the road,” said singer Ozzy Osbourne of potential recording projects. “We haven’t really spoken about it beyond that. I’m down for it.”

“Absolutely,” added guitarist Tony Iommi, who looked and sounded fit, not slowed by his ongoing cancer treatments. “Feeling OK, yeah,” Iommi said, adding that it’s only the radiation treatment he receives every eight weeks that slow him down. “I just get tired. Apart from that, I’m all right.”

  1. I’d love to see sabbath make another album 13 was awesome, if they do it they should get bill ward back in the studio though even if he’s not going to tour with them.

  2. I’ve been following sabbath since high school, they’ve been my favorite band for years. Every incarnation of the band. If they do another one, I’d buy it in a heartbeat. No matter who’s on it or not. I do have to say, though if they were to call it quits there’d better damn well be another full length studio album with all 4 original members right before. I’d also like to see Iommi do some more solo stuff. Whether it be with Glenn Hughes again or a bunch of people like his first. Another thing I’d like to see is a Tony Martin reunion (doubt it’ll happen, though.) I guess we’ll wait and see with sabbath. They’ve never disappointed me.
