Terence "Geezer" Butler
Bassist, founding member, and lyricists for Black Sabbath

"Mogami cables are by far the best cables I have ever used, both for my basses and amplification. The quality is superior to anything else out there."

Terence "Geezer" Butler is a founding member and bassist for the groundbreaking heavy metal band Black Sabbath. Renowned for his metal fingerstyle bass playing, Geezer was also the main lyricist in Black Sabbath, penning almost all the band's verses that drew heavily upon his fascination with the black occult, mysticism, and religion. The band's 1970 commercial breakthrough album Paranoid gave them world-wide recognition with hits like "Paranoid", "War Pigs," and "Iron Man."

Geezer periodically left Black Sabbath from 1979-1997 as the band went through personnel and professional changes, but returned for the 1997 Ozzfest tour, where he continued to be involved with Black Sabbath tours until their official retirement show in 2017.

Today Geezer has a new band, Deadland Ritual, that tours regularly. And Geezer can still play the bass with the same technical proficiency he's always been known for, with his unrelenting rhythmic style still inspiring new generations of bassists and songwriters to this day. He stands as a "Godfather" to the electric bass and is recognized as a founding and integral member of the heavy metal music genre. And his cable of choice? Mogami.
