The end for Black Sabbath, but not for Ozzy

ozzyosbourneBlack Sabbath may be planning on calling it a career after their current tour, but frontman Ozzy Osbourne says he plans on making a new album and going out on a tour of his own.

In a Q&A published on, Ozzy, who just turned 67 on December 3, says he’s not ready to call it quits just yet.

“Well I did pretty well for 35 years — and I’m not retiring,” Osbourne said. “I’m going to do a solo album and a solo tour. I mean my wife’s a shop-a-holic always off buying f—g shoes or something so I’ve got to keep the money coming somehow.”

Ozzy also explained why the band decided not to do a new album.

“The things we’ve discovered are — number one: People aren’t really interested in hearing new stuff and number two: If we were to do an album before the tour — it would take three or four years to complete the album. We want to end it on a high note,” Osbourne said.

Sabbath fans may beg to differ on the part about hearing new stuff, but at least Ozzy plans to continue rockin’.

  1. I honestly liked 13 but I can understand where Ozzy is coming from. Plus, it would be nice to see Ozzy explore other projects with new band members. If that happens that is.
