2017 rolls on like a mini-2016. The latest casualty is former Black Sabbath keyboardist Geoff Nicholls who was on every Sabbath album from Heaven and Hell (1980) to Forbidden (1995). He played bass and sang when need be. For that period of Sabbath’s history, he was the only stable member excluding Tony Iommi himself. Geoff passed at age 68, after a battle with lung cancer. He was rarely pictured with the four “main” Sabbath members, but he was more important than most of them. Rest in Peace.
