Black Sabbath’s Geezer Butler says he wants to write an autiobiography before he dies.

When asked what’s left on his non-musical bucket list, the bassist says he wants to leave a memoir for his grandchildren to read when they grow up.

He tells Kill Your Stereo: “I’d like to write a memoir for my grandkids, because by the time they are grown, I’ll be long gone, and I’d like them to learn about me from my own hand rather than hearsay.”

Last month Butler said the music industry has changed so much over the years that nowadays it’s almost impossible for bands to carve out a lifelong career.

Black Sabbath are taking their The End tour to Australia, New Zealand, Europe and North America. They headline this year’s Download festival at Donington on the weekend of June 10-12.
