Sabbath rocker Geezer Butler spends night in jail after fight in US bar

By Staff Reporter

Veteran rocker Geezer Butler has spent a night in jail after he was arrested following a fight in a US bar.

The Black Sabbath bass player was arrested after a row broke out in the Corkscrew Saloon in Death Valley.

The Birmingham-born musician teamed up with schoolfriend Ozzy Osbourne in a succession of bands before finding fame with Sabbath in the early 1970s.

The band's distinctive sound put them at the forefront of the heavy metal scene and saw them sell millions of records powered by the popularity of tracks including Paranoid with lyrics often written by Butler.

They made a major comeback in 2013 with a number one album and sell-out tour.
