Bras being thrown on stage? A fairly normal occurrence. 

CROSSES being thrown on stage? Now that’s a potential hazard.


Geezer Butler was almost blinded when a fan in San Francisco threw an 18-inch long metal cross at the band, striking him in the face.

Butler recounted the story recently at the opening of a new Black Sabbath exhibit in their hometown of Birmingham, England. The bassist went on to say he actually kept the cross as a souvenir and still has it to this day.


Apparently the guys in Sabbath were cool with keeping some of the stranger things fans gifted them over the years, including a painting from someone in Russia, which depicts the band as Samurai Warriors.
