Zakk Wylde talked about Ozzy Osbourne’s ongoing farewell tour, revealing that the Black Sabbath legend already has future plans once his solo career is wrapped up. You can check out the chat with Kaaos TV below (transcribed by UG):
Are you sad with this being Ozzy’s final run?
“Without a doubt. But it’s not so much a farewell run. I guess this chapter he’s closing, his solo career. Just like with Sabbath – they closed that chapter. This is a farewell of his solo career.
“But right after this, as soon as we end this, Ozz is gonna continue on with [Zakk’s all-star Black Sabbath cover band] Zakk Sabbath Featuring Ozzy Osbourne as lead singer. You know, Oz is kind of familiar with the material. I think it’ll be easy to switch. Without a doubt.”
What are your plans for the future?
“The immediate future, for tonight, when I get done talking with you guys I’ve got an anal bleaching appointment, I’ve gotta shave my legs so I don’t rip my pantyhose when I get up on stage. But aside of that, I just guess we’re gonna be out with the boss for the next two years.
“With Black Label, we’re getting ready to roll out in a month. There’s a month break and Black Label goes back out again with Corrosion of Conformity and Eyehategod. So I’m looking forward to seeing the fellas again. Then we go out with the boss again.
“In between the breaks with the boss, we’re going out with the Black Label, whether we do South America, Europe, Asia… Then we’re also doing Generation Axe. So getting together with Father Steve [Vai] and Father Yngwie [Malmsteen] and Father Nuno [Bettencourt] and Father Tosin [Abasi]. That’s always great time as well. There’s always something going on.
