Video footage legendary BLACK SABBATH bassist Geezer Butler and his tech, Terry Welty, talking about Geezer‘s Hartke setup on the band’s “13” world tour can be seen below.

Butler recently spoke to the Chicago Sun-Times about the band’s new album, “13”, and current North American tour, which hit Toronto, Ontario, Canada last night (Wednesday, August 14).

Asked if he still feels up to his powers as a musician, Butler said: “I’ve always said as long as I can play, as long as I can do it to a good level, then I’ll keep doing it because I still really enjoy playing. I’ll know when the day comes I can’t do this anymore, can’t play to my usual standards. That’s when I won’t go out anymore. I won’t do that to me self. But at the moment, I just love playing with the band. It probably will be the last time, will probably be the last tour. But I want to go out on a high. The band is playing really well at the moment.”

When pressed to elaborate on why he thinks this will be the last BLACK SABBATH tour, Butler said: “I don’t know. I just got a feeling. It’s getting tough, it really is. I can’t lie about that. I’m old now. It really is tough going on every night. You wake up next day, all the pains you never had before. I don’t want to go onstage for the sake of the money. You have to have a lot pride in yourself, and I honestly think I’m coming to the end of the top of my job.”

BLACK SABBATH guitarist Tony Iommi said he’d love to make another record with the band — but admitted that it all depends on how his health holds up. Iommi, who was diagnosed with cancer in January 2012 and continues to undergo treatment for the disease, told CT.com, “It’s a question that’s been asked a few times. I don’t really have an answer. Because of my treatments and stuff I can’t commit to doing another two years or anything like that. I have to play it as it comes now.”

Iommi added, “I’m really enjoying it. If the rest of the year goes well, then we’ll look at it and see if it’s possible to do another album. It would be very nice to. You can’t beat that feeling of walking onstage, especially with your old mates, you know. I think it’s better than it was 40 years ago.”

Iommi, singer Ozzy Osbourne and bassist Geezer Butler reunited last year to record “13”, their first album together since 1978.

The reunion was marred by Iommi‘s illness and founding drummer Bill Ward’s refusal to participate over a contract dispute.

With RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE‘s Brad Wilk sitting in on drums, the band and producer Rick Rubin ended crafting “13”, which came out in June and became the group’s first-ever No. 1 album in the U.S.

When The Pulse Of Radio asked Ozzy recently about the possibility of doing a follow-up to “13”, he replied, “If we do do another album, it’d be great, but if we don’t, this will be a nice way to round it up. The only sad thing is that Bill never played on it.”

Bill Ward (second left) with Sabbath back in 2011

Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward – who is currently sitting out the band’s ongoing reunion owing to contract disputes – has hinted at some of the specific reasons lying behind his decision to not rejoin the band in a new interview.

“I was offered a contact and I couldn’t sign it,” he tells Guitar International. “As for some of the stories – I would never, ever show up for a commitment that I could not do physically. So that should answer that one! In the statement that I did last year, I was quite clear that I came to the end of the road and promised myself and my family that I would never sign a contract that was not workable.

“It was one of the toughest decisions that I ever had to make. Because I absolutely and without question wanted to play. I haven’t left the band. Everybody thinks I have left the band. I didn’t walk out; it wasn’t like that at all! I just didn’t sign the contact and life took its own course.

“I’m the drummer in Black Sabbath so I want to do the entire show. I play all or nothing. Playing partially would kind of be aligning to my demise in Sabbath and minimize me. I’m the drummer in Sabbath and quite capable of doing the job.”

Paolo (far right) with Trivium

Trivium bassist Paolo Gregoletto sat down for a chat with Roadrunner Records to give us an update on the progress of the Floridian heavyweights’ new album, which is produced by Disturbed’s David Draiman and due out via Roadrunner later this year.

“Definitely, in the past, we kind of approached it like…we definitely had some records that were a bit of a 180 from the previous one, but now we’ve really learned what works within our band and it’s really about improving those things, bettering them each time we go into it,” says the bassist. “I think once you find what your identity is, you just want to keep improving and building upon that, and adding new elements in but also retaining what makes your band unique among the thousands and thousands of bands that are out there. So I think with this record, it wasn’t a total clean slate, it was really just tightening everything up and bringing everything that makes us Trivium together even more and writing the best material and having an album that, start to finish, never really lets up.

Matt Heafy and David Draiman. Now BFFs

“It never has any filler or dead spots, and I think David really being a fan of Trivium, and really seeing our growth as a band along the way, helped out, because it wasn’t like he was coming in and not really knowing what our band was about. He really understood what we’ve built as a band over the last seven, eight years, and how important it is to really respect all of that and to keep that stuff that’s made us Trivium, and just better it — bigger melodies, bigger hooks, bigger riffs, everything.

“Sonically, he wanted us to make a thicker-sounding album, and he definitely really pushed [mixer] Colin [Richardson] and [engineer] Carl [Bown] to make this our biggest-sounding record. And I think they did an amazing job, to be honest. We’ve worked with Colin for so many records now, and he’s totally outdone himself.”

We really, really need to hear this. Check out the rest of the interview here
