Black Sabbath Star Fears For Future Of Mastodon And Royal Blood

(TeamRock Radio) Geezer Butler says he's a fan of Mastodon and Royal Blood - but the Sabbath bass player says the music industry is so different to when his own band started their journey that it's almost impossible for young rock and metal acts to carve out a lifelong career.

Butler tells Armi Official: "I like Mastodon, but I'm not sure how big they will become. And I like Royal Blood, but I'm not sure they could maintain the longevity required.

He adds: "The music industry today is unrecognizable from when we first started. I think it's harder than ever to break through the success barrier, especially for rock and metal bands.

"It's very hard to make a good living out of music for new bands, especially with the access to the internet these days, having so many people posting their videos online.

"Downloading songs has made it almost impossible to make money from recordings and live shows. The internet has taken the surprise out of gigs." Read more here.
