During the recent interview with Music Radar, Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler has shared the story of how they recorded some Sabbath albums.
“Which were the wildest recording sessions for Sabbath?”
“We only started using drugs while recording Vol. 4  onwards. The first few albums were recorded reasonably straight, maybe a few joints were smoked. The serious stuff was imbibed when we recorded that one in LA… and then later on Sabbath Bloody Sabbath . None of it made me play better.
I’d think so at the time – then when listening to it back sober, I’d have to redo everything. Alcohol is by far the worst for performing. I only ever did that once, and that was enough.”
“Now that touring with Sabbath is over, what do you plan to do with your time?”
“I will mainly be spending time with my family, dogs and cats – and probably doing lots of tourist-type travelling. Of course, I’ll be writing ideas for songs, which may or may not ever be heard publicly. I just enjoy experimenting in my home studio.”
