- 2. "Hound Dog (Single)" by Big Mama Thornton: "One of the earliest examples of rock 'n' roll."
- 3. "This Masquerade (Nightmares On Wax JJP Mix)" by George Benson: "Another of my all time favourite songs, expertly updated."
- 4. "Name That Tune" by John Scofield: "I saw this band at the St. Louis jazz festival, and had to get this album!"
- 5. "Little Things" by Lamb: "One of my favourite bands — very innovative. I always look forward to new Lamb albums."
- 6. "Seasons In the Abyss" by Slayer: "This is where iTunes really helped me out. We were in the studio recording the new GZR album and I thought part of the vocals sounded like this track. I was able to download it from iTunes, and compare it. It was my 666th iTunes download! Great classic metal."

Wow, this has been on here since 2005, and I'm the first one to comment? Certainly can't accuse Geezer of being one dimensional. One of the godfathers of metal, and he's into Madeleine Peyroux. Gotta love that. Think I'll stick with the original version of Iron Man though! Go Geezer! Thanks for sharing. Love your picks!
Geezer the jazzman
I've been a Sabbath fan since I was 12 years old in 1971, and being a musican myself this list does not suprise me like it does most metal fans. The truth is most musicans have a very wide range of musical tastes, they don't just listen to the type of music they play and write. You can have you favorite type of music but if your a true music fan then you are allowed and should like many styles, you can find something cool almost anywhere if you listen close. If I remember right Sabbath started as a jazz band called "The Earth Band" I think.
