Black Sabbath's Geezer Butler Arrested After Bar Fight

Black Sabbath bass player Geezer Butler was reportedly arrested on charges of misdemeanor assault, public intoxication and vandalism after he was allegedly in a bar fight in Death Valley, Ca on Tuesday (Jan. 27). A man matching the description of the metal legend, real name Terence Michael Butler, reportedly got into an altercation at the Corkscrew Saloon where an unnamed individual was "struck" and a window was broken, according to a statement issued by the Inyo County Sheriff's department. The department's Public Information Officer Carma Roper released the following details, "Shortly after midnight on January 27th Sheriff's Dispatch received a call regarding a verbal and physical altercation that took place at the Corkscrew Saloon located at the Furnace Creek Ranch property in Death Valley National Park. "After the Inyo County Sheriff's Deputy arrived on scene and interviewed witnesses it was determined that there had been an argument that escalated into a physical confrontation - resulting in an individual being struck, and a broken window. "Terence Michael Butler a 65-year old man from Beverly Hills, CA was arrested for misdemeanor assault, public intoxication and vandalism. Butler was booked into the Inyo County Jail and released after detox and citation." As you can see from the statement, while the age and name of the person arrested does match the Black Sabbath star, the department did not confirm that it was indeed Geezer Butler, who lists his Los Angeles area residence as being in Hollywood, Ca on his Twitter account. At press time there was no word from Geezer or the Black Sabbath camp about the arrest and his last social media posts confirmed that he was in Southern California earlier this week.

AC/DC's 'Big Balls' Remade For NFL Deflategate Controversy

(hennemusic) AC/DC's 1976 classic, "Big Balls", has been updated as the quarterback Tom Brady, the New England Patriots and the NFL continue to deal with the Deflategate scandal heading into Super Bowl week. Seattle's Sports Radio KJR has posted "Tom's Big Balls" as both a parody and commentary on the controversy, which revolves around the Patriots' use of deflated footballs in the first half of the team's AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts on January 18. The footballs were replaced by NFL officials at halftime of that game after the Colts brought it to their attention; the Patriots went on to win 45-7. The NFL is continuing to investigate the matter while the Patriots deny their involvement in the incident; the team was caught cheating in 2007 when they videotaped opponent's defensive coaches signals in violation of league rules - an event later known as Spygate. The Patriots will play the NFC Champion - and defending Super Bowl Champions - Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl 49 in Glendale, Arizona on February 1. "Big Balls" first appeared on AC/DC's 1976 album, "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap." The record was originally issued in Australia before seeing an international release three months later…and 5 years later in the U.S.
