Black Sabbath Member ‘Ripped Off’ Geezer Butler

 

"Butler added about the horns, “I didn’t really think much of it. As I say, I’ve got pictures of me doing it in 1971. And it was just an alternative to Ozzy’s peace signs, I was doing it. And if you look at the ‘Yellow Submarine’ album cover, John Lennon’s cartoon character is doing it, in 1966 or whatever it was. So it’s an old sign. I was just doing it ’cause [English occultist] Aleister Crowley used to do it.”"

I assume that below is an A.O.S. self-portrait?  As you can see he's also doing the gesture mentioned in the OP;

I think I heard that this gesture was known in Ancient Rome?
