Notes from the creator: (spelling errors intact)

Here is the best documentary ever to come out of a concert/riot show. Geezer Butler gets hit with something that cuts hit eye and the band walks off after two songs and the crowd is told to go home. Then 10,000 people groan...hiss...and boooooooo! Part of the problem was nobody really new what had happened. One chair was knocked over in discuss. Then two chairs was knocked over. Then four, sixteen, what is sixteen to the second power? Hand rails were ripped out from the balcony. The back support for the fixed chairs in the balcony were busted in half. All the while I am recording all this mayhem. I even interviewed the nuts while they were braking stuff. The security team all surrounded the mixing consule while this was taking place. I am now in the balcony watching and recording. All the fold up chairs on the main floor was made of wood. By now, there was at least 100 of these chairs all in a HUGE pile in the middle of the main floor. I then see one guy with a BIC lighter trying to light this huge wooden chair pile. Classic. He never could get it going. He needed lighter fluid. Police sirens and all the sounds of a riot right here. Every piece of window and door glass was broken. Over $10,000.00 in damage. My buddy was told to leave by police but then went back in and promptly was arrested. He said that police station was over flowing with arrestees and reporters. Black Sabbath has not played in Milwaukee since. The Milwaukee Bucks I believe had a game the next day. (A HEARTY THANK YOU TO THIS KIND HUMAN BEING)

Here's what THE GEEZ had to say about this: (from here)

Of all the road stories the veteran has, one of the most vivid is of the show during which he was almost seriously injured and the riotous aftermath. During the Heaven & Hell tour, Butler was hit by a bottle at the start of the show in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. "I think I was doing the intro to 'N.I.B.' and I heard something hit a cymbal. Then I was hit in the head. One minute I'm playing 'N.I.B.,' the next I'm covered in blood! I backed out and was taken off stage. Unfortunately, this happened while the lights were down so everyone thought we walked off! Our fucking idiot road manager came out and asked the audience if they thought it was 1776 again. Just what you want to say to an American crowd!"

Butler continues with a laugh, "We hated him anyhow because he was a spy for the management that we were going to fire. He continued to say things until the crowd went absolutely nuts. By the time I'm in the hospital and kids in Sabbath shirts started arriving covered in blood. We're all lying there, side by side, as if it was a battlefield. Thankfully, it only made the local news." Nowadays, it would be bigger than the Guns'n'Roses incident in St.Louis.
