Black Sabbath’s Geezer Butler is lost in Ian Rankin’s latest ‘Glasgow’ novel


ROCK legend Geezer Butler has revealed he is reading Ian Rankin’s latest “Glasgow” crime novel.

Black Sabbath bassist Butler, 64, reveals his reading habits – and confusion about Scottish geography – in an interview with Pure Volume magazine.

He said: “It’s mainly detective and crime fiction and stuff like that.

“I’m currently reading the new Ian Rankin book—it’s about a Glasgow detective. That’s the kind of stuff I like.”

Music lover Rankin spotted the slip-up by his latest celebrity fan, tweeting: “Geezer Butler of Black Sabbath is reading my latest ‘Glasgow’ crime novel…”

One fan responded: “It’s about time you wrote a Glasgow novel.”

Standing in Another Man’s Grave, sees the firmly Edinburgh-based detective, John Rebus, return to investigate the disappearances of three women from the same road over ten years.

Black Sabbath, complete with original singer Ozzy Osbourne, are currently touring America and promoting their latest album “13”, their first studio album in 18 years.
