    Geezer is the king of bass gods. Its too bad so many musicians dont get past hearing only the basic riffs that Sabbath did. Sure they're great riffs but geezer really shined on their more obscure tunes and under the solos (like in Iron Man) that very few people bother to analyze. They hear the main riff of Iron Man and shut out the reest, or they hear Paranoid and think thats all they can play. But, the rest of us can appreciate geezer in all his glory.

    I will have to agree that Geezer is awesome. Some of my favorite stuff is the bass part on solitude and the intro to war pigs. Among many, many others.

    That would be great! Could you picture the audition? But at this point Geezer might have more in common with Dick Cheney than James hetfield.
     
  12. i love geezer butlers sound. How does he make his bass sound like that... anyway i think he was an excellent bass player and that a lot of people don't notice where he really shines but i sadly was never impressed with the solo at the beginning of NIB. It was good but he could have done better with (i believe) his only stand alone solo.
     
  13. What's all this about Geezer was this and Geezer was that ?

    Geezer still is the best Heavy Bassist ! His work still sounds great.

    He is very underrated I don't think he's played a bad bass line ever. His sound to me is like an amp that is almost on the verge of blowing up, not crazy distortion or anything but like an amp made to work so hard it's about to say it's had enough, and please can I go home now !!!

    It's difficult for me to choose any tracks that I like above others, I've been following the Sabbs for nearly 30 years but.. I like the bass work on Warning /The Wizard /Solitude /Iron Man /All moving Parts ( Stand still ) /Juniors Eyes
    And ofcourse everything else he plays !

    Yea, Terrence rocks hard. He also has a very addictive bass style if you get listening to him too long. A kind of "Well, if I'm gonna have some fret noise then I'm going to make it friggen' HUGE!" thing. Bloody marvelous. I still have to remind myself to calm down and not grind all my fretted notes in any high-energy situation. Maybe that's what I play fretless mostly...no great need to do that on fretless... :D
