“I was supposed to be doing the tour, and then out of blue it was, ‘No, we’re going to use Geezer,'” the musician reveals. “I was psyched since I played on the whole album and co-wrote the whole album.

“And now I was supposed to be in the videos. And all of sudden, it was ‘No, you’re not doing it. We’re getting Geezer.’

“I don’t know what happened. We hadn’t had any fallout. I hadn’t done anything wrong. Who knows? I really don’t know the answer to that one.

“Maybe he and Ozzy got together and had a drink together and maybe Ozzy got a little bit pissed and had too many drinks and invited Geezer back.”

After all, Bob continued to remember Ozzy Osbourne‘s words about him and Geezer Butler. According to Ozzy, Geezer thought that Bob was one of the greatest things he had ever seen.

“I know when Geezer’s mom died, I got the phone call,” Bob continues. “‘Can you fill in for Geezer for a couple of days?’ And so I went out and did one or two shows.

“It was then that Ozzy told me, ‘Geezer had to learn all your bass lines. He thinks you’re the greatest thing since sliced bread.’ That was nice.”

Concluding his words about his opinion on Geezer Butler, Daisley remembered his reaction to his watching him. He also stated that they both respects each other.

“I flew in and saw the show with Geezer playing,” he adds. “I stood at the side of the stage and watched. He went, ‘Oh, God, you made me nervous, you watching the show like that.’

“He respected me, which was really nice. It was nice of him to say that. I got on fine with Geezer. There was never any hard feelings or animosity between me and Geezer.”
