88 Victoria Road: This grey-walled three-stores house was once home to Geezer Butler. Coming from a big working class family, profound Irish Catholics, Butler left home early at about 17 or 18 years to work as a clerk. His first band was called Rare Breed, founded in late 1967. He was soon joined by Ozzy who took lead vocals. Please do not disturb the current occupants of the building.
