(Classic Rock) Black Sabbath bass player Geezer Butler reveals in a new interview he used to self-harm when he was younger and that he'd have killed himself if the band hadn't made it.

Sabbath's 1970 single Paranoid was written about the bass player's mental state at the time, as he battled with depression. And he reveals the extent of his problems in a brand new interview with Classic Rock magazine.

Butler says: "I used to be a cutter. I'd cut my arms, stick pins in my fingers, that kind of thing. I used to get really depressed and it was the only thing that could bring me out from it.

"If Sabbath hadn't made it, I'd have been long dead. I'd have killed myself." Read more here.
