BLACK SABBATH's GEEZER BUTLER Plays Michael Kelly Acoustic Bass

May 9, 2005

Michael Kelly Guitar Company has announced that bassist Geezer Butler of the band BLACK SABBATH has chosen to play a Michael Kelly acoustic bass.

Undoubtedly one of hard rock's most influential musicians, Butler has been a member of BLACK SABBATH since the band's inception in the 1960s. Butler received his Michael Kelly Dragonfly bass in Los Angeles where he was departing for a headlining tour of Europe. In addition to his work with SABBATH, Butler has also recorded three CDs with G/Z/R. The group's latest release, "Ohmwork", is due this week via Sanctuary Records.

The Dragonfly 4 is Michael Kelly's latest limited edition acoustic bass. It features a new vine-style inlay made from real pearl and abalone. The all-maple body features quilted maple wood which not only gives the bass a unique look, but also produces improved attack and acoustic projection.

Geezer Butler was introduced to the world of Michael Kelly acoustic basses via F.P.E. agents. F.P.E. is a music marketing and lifestyle company based in Los Angeles, CA.
