Jo Burt (born 1953) is an English rock and heavy metal bassist, guitar player, songwriter and vocalist. He is possibly best known for being the bassist for Black Sabbath during their 1987 tour in support of the album The Eternal Idol. He left the band after the tour ended.
Jo Burt was also a founding member of Sector 27 with Tom Robinson - and a member of Virginia Wolf with Jason Bonham. Burt also appears on Freddie Mercury's solo album, Mr. Bad Guy playing fretless bass.
Burt continues to write music and now lives in Dorset with his wife, Antonia (a soprano), and together they perform regularly in London and elsewhere in the UK as The Jo Burt Experience. He calls his southern-style rock with a trippy Beatles-esque English twist sound "Anglicana" - a term he coined himself - and describes it as "Nashville Rock with an English Accent".
