Black Sabbath's Geezer Butler has revealed that he plans to write a book about the beginning of the legendary band. The bassist told Australia's Wall of Sound, “I'm currently putting together a book about growing up in Aston, Birmingham and how Sabbath came about… but I'm really enjoying semi-retirement and not having to do anything or be anywhere, especially after being away from home for most of the last 50 years.”

Earlier in the interview, he said, “Every generation, as they get older, wants to look back fondly on their younger years, and music is a great way of reviving those feelings they had in their younger days. There is no denying there was some incredible music back in the sixties and seventies, lots of various styles and ideas, that still sound relevant now, and with each generation there is still a demand for that music.”
