Bassist Geezer Butler had a conversation with Ultimate Classic Rock, where he talked about the current relationship with Black Sabbath bandmates.
Butler mentioned that Tony Iommi is still keeping in touch with him, but not with Ozzy Osbourne:
“Yeah, he’s always been there for me. You know, he’s a good friend. We can slag each other to death. It’s like marriage, really. You have terrible arguments, you fall out and you come back together. But he’s always there.
”He always is. I hope he is after this book as well. I still love Bill (Ward) but he’s not on the Internet. If you want to talk to Bill, you have to e-mail his wife and she has to tell him. It’s really awkward.
” Ozzy I don’t speak to at all. […] I very much doubt it. We didn’t fall out; it was the wives.”
