Corey Taylor, Zakk Wylde, Jason Newsted Lead All Star Geezer Butler Tribute
A star-studded line-up of metal musicians including Zakk Wylde, Corey Taylor, Jason Newsted, Sebastian Bach, Charlie Benante, Frank Bello, Chris Broderick, David Ellefson and Rudy Sarzo recently took to the stage at a show honoring Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler. As Blabbermouth notes, the performance was as part of the Bass Player LIVE! Concert & Awards Show that took place in Los Angeles on Saturday November 9th. You can check out footage below:

In a recent interview with Loudwire, Jason Newsted explained the influence that Geezer Butler has had on his playing: "Geezer, for me - not really sure how to describe it. Somehow he just got his hooks into me. Maybe he did that with many other bass players too, but he was a lead bassist from the get go. Black Sabbath, there's a lot of space in those songs. There's a lot of room for everyone to go off and he was always doing that so supportive and so musical with the drums, very jazz-oriented rhythm section in Black Sabbath that just got super loud and heavy. Very progressive. So that was always a big influence on me, having the bass that loud up front like that. That attracted all of us."
