I created this artwork for Geezer Butler and had it printed out on a custom shirt as a special gift for my all time bass hero in Christmas 2011 , obviously everyone knows how Geezer tends to be one of Aston Villa's biggest cheering fans , I jokingly had Geezer quoted " If it wasn't for Tony , Bill and Ozzy , I would have named Black Sabbath the Aston Villians !" I added his Ampeg bass amp along with one of his new custom Yamaha bass guitars that I saw him use on Heaven & Hell's Ronnie James Dio tribute show at London's High Voltage festival on 24/07/2011. If a high quality resolution of this artwork needed to any 'Home of Metal' project I will be more than pleased to send it over.
In this recently added oral history clip 35 year old metal fan Matt Clardige describes how his musical education started when he noticed that he was always drawn to the heavier tracks on the ”Now That’s What I Call Music…” compilations that his family often acquired during the festive season
