(Classic Rock) Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler says his life will be "very empty" when the band retires next year. Their final US shows take place this week as their The End world tour moves towards its closing shows in their home city of Birmingham, UK, in February.

Asked what Black Sabbath's legacy will be, Butler tells Austin360: "It will be bittersweet. It's been a great achievement lasting so long and still being relevant. It's something to be proud of - but my life will be very empty without the band. I hope our music will be around for a very long time after we've gone."

He says of signature track Black Sabbath: "The riff is very dark and brooding, but the lyrics are warning against the darkness." Read more here.
