Ozzy Osbourne was asked on Jonesy’s Jukebox on what it feels like performing with Zakk Wylde again, to which he replied:
“We’ve just done a few gigs. We’re doing one every month.[metalwani_content_ad]
“His playing is unbelievably good now. I hadn’t played with him in a band situation for quite a while now, but I’m on stage with him and my jaw drops.
“He’s so fast now!”
Focusing on the end of Black Sabbath, Ozzy said:
“[It’s] done. Over. I’ve been solo 35 years. It wasn’t like it was the breakup of the century. One thing I’m happy about is we’re all friends at the end of the day. But I’m glad to be back on my own. I [only] have me to answer to now.[metalwani_content_ad]
“It was good to end it on an up note, ’cause Ronnie James Dio had died and they couldn’t do it with him anymore. So it was just a nice way to finish it.
“It would have been nicer if we had waited another year, I suppose, ’cause it would have been 50 years [since the formation of the band].
“But I’m not retiring. How can you retire from this? It’s not a job. It’s not like I’m [punching a time] card at eight o’clock every morning. It’s the best thing that ever happened to me.”
