EMG TV Had a Guest, Some Geezer Butler Guy

When players get to Geezer Butler’s level of legendary status it’s not often that you can get interview footage about things like the gear they play, so this interview with EMG TV is just awesome. Well, okay, half of the talking is done by his tech Terry Welty, but that’s fine by me.


He discusses his new signature EMG pickups, as well as the active EMGs he used in the ’70s and early ’80s, in a B.C. Rich bass during the Heaven And Hell and Mob Rules albums. It was also cool to get a good look at his signature Lakland: as a Lakland player myself, I gave a high five to the screen.
