What... no Geezer Butler in the 25 greatest bass players of all time rankings? You’re having a laugh. As the bottom end of Black Sabbath, Geezer invented detuned, heavy as hell, metal bass. There may be faster, louder or even hairier metal players making bowels move involuntarily these days but Geezer kicked the bleedin’ door down in the first place.

Band(s): Black Sabbath, GZR, Heaven & Hell
Gear: Fender Precision Bass, Rickenbacker 4001, Lakland basses
