In a new interview with SiriusXM, legendary Ozzy Osbourne talked about working with Tony Iommi & whether he would like to restart Black Sabbath.
When asked if his recent collaboration with Tony Iommi might lead to new music from BLACK SABBATH, Ozzy said:
“No, not more BLACK SABBATH. But I wouldn’t say no to doing some more with Tony. BLACK SABBATH is a completely different music to what I’m into now.”
Ozzy added further on working with Tony Iommi on his latest solo album, saying:
“It was great. I mean, now you don’t have to sit in a room; you can do it over the phone.”
“That track would have been a great BLACK SABBATH track on the ’13’ album. I wasn’t really in love with that ’13’ album.”
When asked If SABBATH is over and done with, Ozzy said:
“Well, it’s kind of, like, how many times do you wanna do the same… it’s the same format, you know? It was very successful for a lot of years, and people wanted to see us. I did that farewell tour. And the only thing about that which was sad [was that original SABBATH] Bill Ward wasn’t there. But I’ve spoken to Bill since. He’s all right. I would work with any of them individually. But as BLACK SABBATH, I think it’s [over]. We couldn’t really beat what we’ve already done.”
During a conversation with Rolling Stone, Ozzy Osbourne confirmed Black Sabbath won’t reunite again and his regret about Black Sabbath’s farewell tour.
When asked about Black Sabbath, Ozzy said:
“I was talking to [guitarist] Tony Iommi the other day, and he was saying, by the looks of it, we’re gonna be a f*cking thing of the past in the respect that there’ll be no more indoor gigs.”
When asked about Tony’s interest to play one more Black Sabbath gig, Ozzy said:
“Not for me. It’s done. The only thing I do regret is not doing the last farewell show in Birmingham with [drummer] Bill Ward. I felt really bad about that.
“It would have been so nice. I don’t know what the circumstances behind it were, but it would have been nice.
“I’ve talked to him a few times, but I don’t have any of the slightest interest in [doing another gig]. Maybe Tony’s getting bored now.”
