  • Latest News :: The Official Geezer Butler Website
    a tour in Europe so at first the plan was to get it ready for a European only release to promote the tour we were going to do this past summer in Europe which of course was canceled because of Ronnie Then of course Ronnie passed away and it ended up being the last thing we ll ever put out with him The show was filmed on July 30 How long after that did Ronnie become ill He started really going downhill in September towards the end of the US part of the tour The US tour was supposed to have two parts We did the first four weeks then Tony had something happen to his hand and he had to have an operation immediately So we had to postpone the second part of the tour so Tony could have his hand looked at And Ronnie s stomach problems got worse and worse He was going to do a Dio tour in Europe and he was rehearsing for that but his stomach kept getting worse Then he went to the doctor and the doctor didn t say anything about it at first He just gave him some constipation medicine and said he was severely constipated And then he went to a specialist and they told him it was stomach cancer Had Ronnie been exhibiting signs of stomach cancer He d been having stomach aches but everyone gets flu or food poisoning when you re on tour You re in front of 10 000 people and 2 000 might have the flu There are all these germs around so you always get something when you re on tour And Ronnie was getting these stomach pains One night he d be alright and the next night he d be doubled up in pain The last week of the American tour he was in agony I ll always remember he came out for the very last gig and we said Look Ronnie if you re that ill we ll just blow the gig And he said No I m not gonna blow the gig And he was literally doubled up in pain And he just made himself go on He totally refused to cancel the show So he went on and we thought Oh God what s gonna happen None of us ever thought cancer we just thought it was a severe stomach bug And then at this time last year just after Halloween he went in and got the report it was cancer It was just one of those things you don t expect to happen In August you played a final Heaven Hell show as a benefit for Ronnie with vocalists Glenn Hughes and Jorn Lande Was that a bittersweet experience It was really weird doing Heaven Hell stuff without Ronnie being there It was really strange It was sort of great in one way and then really sad in another way So yeah it really was bittersweet It was supposed to be an original Heaven Hell gig And the promoter said If you do it as a tribute to Ronnie I ll pay the same amount of money into the Dio charity That made sense to us And if it makes people more aware of cancer and encourages them to get checked out and stuff it was for a good cause It s one of those things you feel strange talking about After Ronnie died did it take away some of your zeal for music Did everything remind you of him You just realize that if it can happen to him it can happen to you any day It hasn t really changed me It can t change you because you still have to live your own life and carry on as before as much as you can But it did take a while to get back into the music again I didn t even go into my home studio I started writing again about three months ago I didn t want to hear anything before that I didn t even really want to watch this DVD It was just too close I m just gradually getting back into it and hope something will come out of it There have been reports about another Black Sabbath tour with Ozzy Osbourne Is that going to happen in 2011 I have no idea what s happening with that It s not going to happen next year Ozzy s on tour with his own band for the next year or whatever The idea of doing another Sabbath tour always comes up It s just something that s always talked about and there if we want to do it It s sort of really early days though I m sure Ozzy will say yes and no every week for the next year while he s on tour It s one thing to want to do something like that just before you go out to tour a record You say Oh yeah I m gonna tour for the next five years And then six weeks into it you can t wait to get home So we ll just see how he feels when he finishes his Ozzy Osbourne tour You said you ve started writing Is that for a solo album I ve been slowly writing stuff that could be the next GZR album I ll just see how it turns out I have about 20 ideas down at the moment So I m looking at probably starting recording it seriously in January or February How do you think the album will differ from Ohmwork which you put out in 2005 It s hard to say It started off really bluesy and now it s lost the bluesiness and gone ultra heavy and very dark again Who will you be playing with It ll probably be guitarist Pedro House and drummer Chad Smith from St Louis and probably Clark Brown singing again But I ll

you cannot see him anymore Or you can be filled with the love and magic you shared with him You could turn your back on tomorrow and start living for yesterday Or you could be happy for the days to come because he was there yesterday You could remember the fact alone that he was there Or you can treasure his memory and make it live forever You could cry and step away feel empty and close yourself Or you could do what he would want us to Open your eyes wipe away your tears Enjoy life love each other and move on To all you metalheads around the globe I salute you and share your pain All

sharing your thoughts about the events leading up to Ronnie s final moments I know it must have been hard to sit and write this while so many memories raced through your mind reliving the good times and things you will surely miss about this long time friend of yours I think all of us who are mourning the loss of this great soul have been in constant reminiscence about how this man influenced our lives I know i sure have Ronnie is an inspiration to any and all hard rock heavy metal fans and musicians The man really was loved by all of us The true love for his fans never went unnoticed it was apparent by his devotion to his craft always searching for perfection He made the fans aware of how much he cared for them and never altered his integrity in the slightest We ll remember him forever Marco Velasquez says May 19 2010 at 3 34 pm Mr Butler Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing such personal moments with all of us who loved him so deeply He was a huge influence on my self

you Geezer and thank you for your words between our tears MAVIII tim says May 19 2010 at 4 38 pm wanted to give my condolences to wendy and all the associated in this unsettling time even though i didnt know ronnie personaly one of my dreams was to some how get a day with him and do some of the songs i loved so much to play as i was 8 years old ive been learning all the music that was ever played from purple to rainbow sabath even some earlyer stuff before all that im not shure how to take this situation but im shure ronnie wouldent want anyone to suffer from it eather it is a large hole to never be filled by another i feel like i lost a left arm but that left arm will continue to remind me of some of the greatest music on earth not only by ronnie but all involved at 1 time or another but you know he did have his impact on the world for all he could do and then some im not going to say alot thair isnt words to justify only music think its time for sombody to write somthing on this day im only 45 years old im going to see alot of this happen its the way of life nothing more we can do just wright god bless you wendy and god bless all of you for the untouched years i have to give the credit where it is due i just wasnt ready to lose this dream it may be a small dream of mine but my train has come to a instant stop i only have a few ive realy enjoyed and thair all afilliated im just not good at this in words or spelling the last time i seen ronnie was in the target centre in mlps mn time before that was several years ago he did a gig at medina ballroom in madina minn i was sitting in the back of the of the stage sitting on one of the gear crate s watching the show and ronnie came down in the middle of a solo and said thay need to make road cases with padding i said why are guitar players that lazy if i ever play for you ii want one with a back rest and i handed him 1 of my guitar pic s he smiled and i did say thank you he replyed this guitar pic wont do you any good sitting back here and somtimes it not very good up thair eather as he pointed at the stage and had a smerk look to him i could tell he was frustrated with the band or somthing wasnt right i wished i could have helped him some how but i stayed quiet he turnd away went over to get somthing or another before he went back up on stage he came over and said make shure this is what you want in life most musician s are avoiding peaple i supose alot of crazy stuff goes on that i dont see but he did take the time for a good out look on my life or advise you could say what alot of fans dont get is musicians are real peaple to it s just a blood desease that lead s us to where we chose to go my dad always said ronnie was always the one to trigger that desease in me all these years im gona miss the music i dont have from him i feel thair was so much more to learn thank you all god bless Craig Keeton says May 19 2010 at 4 59 pm Dear Geezer I am so very sorry for your loss Our family is keeping Dio s family and the Sabbath family in our thoughts and prayers It seems inadequate to express how much Dio s music meant to us over the years Suffice to say I have been playing Sabbath Heaven and Hell Rainbow and Dio nonstop over the last few days and smiling through the tears My daughter Louise and I were fortunate to meet you and Ronnie and Tony after a show in Maryland in 2007 You all could not have been nicer or more gracious You all lived up to and exceeded our lofty expectations And Ronnie was great he made us feel like we knew him all our lives He was easy to talk to and relate to It felt like we could have gone on all night It was a moment we will always cherish The world is a sadder place without him in it We will miss him and we will miss Heaven and Hell Thank you for the music And thank you for being the tremendous people you are Frank Mammano says May 19 2010 at 5 11 pm I am completely and utterly driven to tears N Wibawa says May 19 2010 at 5 36 pm Farewell Dio You were my hero Thanks for all the great memories Jules says May 19 2010 at 5 54 pm Over the course of a lifetime there are many changes that occur within a person as they progress through life there are hobbies that come and go brief joys times of hardship times of success heartbreak and lifelong relationships One thing that has been a constant for me since my teenage years in the 70 s a constant joy and uplifting force has been the music and influence of Ronnie James Dio For over 4 decades his music has brought joy and happiness into my life I can t thank Ronnie enough for the gift he s shared But it wasn t only his talent that he shared with the world Ronnie James Dio has set an example of how to live your life with kindness and grace He was very loved in this world I ve never felt so devastated by the death of someone I haven t ever met Geezer thank you for sharing your feelings and experiences I wish you my condolences for the loss of your dear friend Gregg says May 19 2010 at 7 03 pm Thank you Geezer for letting us know that Ronnie was surrounded by his loved ones at the end It s unbearable to lose him but still there is comfort in knowing that he knew how much we all loved him Scott says May 19 2010 at 7 41 pm Cancer sucks Ronnie you will be deeply missed thank you for being an inspiration to me This has been a crushing blow and I just cant believe he is gone RIP Ronnie Marcio Tavares says May 19 2010 at 8 14 pm Dear Geezer It was a shock receive the news about the passing of Ronnie In my deepest thoughts I still don t believe he is not here anymore Thank you for sharing some details As a fan of course I am curious about what happened the circumstances and also because my mother has passed away in the same way but I know his family is very discreet and I respect that In fact this is one aspect I admire in Ronnie s family even if the curiosity some times get over the limits The sadness is still huge and will be like this for some time I never met Ronnie but attended to 3 shows and I am sad like this I barely can imagine how you all are as you were so close to him longtime friends family may God give you all strength to pass through this moment As I thought when was the time of my mother to leave us sometimes we have some kind of selfish wishes that s not bad it s our human condition to remain with our beloved friend or mom or dad but we think that to kill our pain not his pain It s an subconscious feeling I think if it s better for him to leave us we have to accept it We ll feel the pain for some time but then soon will be only our best thoughts on our minds His legacy is forever Sorry about my bad english Marcio Tavares from Rio de Janeiro Brasil Matt Fichter says May 19 2010 at 8 58 pm The true measure of this man can be seen and felt in the words of his friends and peers His music is ours but his essence truly belongs to those whom he loved and to those who loved him In the words of Charlie Daniels Fly high proud bird You are free at last Steve Crowley says May 19 2010 at 9 21 pm I love you Geez Thank you SC Brian says May 19 2010 at 9 31 pm Geezer My heart just sanked hearing of Ronnies passing Thank you for sharing your thoughts Seems like yesturday in 1980 i went to
