This morning, 28 January 2017, sad news shocked all Black Sabbath fans hearts...

Quartz official page issued following statement:

"GEOFF NICHOLLS ..... LEGEND , BAND MEMBER AND FRIEND29th February 1944 to 28th January 2017Everyone in the band, and associated with the band, are struggling to find the words to express their feelings and sadness regarding the passing of their dear friend Geoff Nicholls earlier this morning at home. Geoff had been unwell for a long time battling cancer and had under gone extensive radio and chemotherapy plus other trial treatment but all sadly to no avail in the end. In this darkest and lowest moment of time Geoff's lyrics and music speak volumes to us and for us and through these his memory will live on forever.Our deepest sympathies,thoughts and prayers go out to Gloria and her family as they try come to terms with their loss. RIP GEOFF xxx"

A bit later, heartbroken Tony Iommi posted this touching message:

"I'm so saddened to hear the loss of one of my dearest and closest friends Geoff Nicholls. He's been suffering for a while now with lung cancer and he lost his battle this morning. Geoff and I have always been very close and he has been a real true friend to me and supported me all the way for nearly 40 years. I will miss him dearly and he will live in my heart until we meet again.Rest In Peace my dear friend.Tony"

Words are shallow to express all the pain and sadness today... All friends and fans are mourning...

Rest in peace, fifth Sabbath boy! May your soul find bliss in heaven. Thank you for entire life of superb art. You are part of our DNA, and will live in our hearts forever.

\m/ Geoff
