OZZY OSBOURNE covered a whole bunch of topics in a new interview with the Philadelphia Inqurier, but it was his comments about the last few years spent with BLACK SABBATH that has a lot of eyebrows raised. In the piece, Ozzy discusses his solo career, his TV shows, and his larger-than-life fame, which apparently may have played a role in how he perceived he was viewed by band mates Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler... According to Ozzy, “I spent nine or 10 years in Sabbath, but I'd been away from them for over 30 years. With them, I'm just a singer. With me, I get to do what I want to do. I was getting bad vibes from them for being Ozzy. I don't know, what the f**k else can I be?” He added that, "I didn't have a great time,'  in describing the years (since the 2011 reunion announcement) that included the band's 2013 album, '13,' and lasting right up until The Sabs' February 2017 farewell concert in their hometown of Birmingham England. The North American jaunt of Ozzy's 'No More Tours 2' tour continues thru the end of October, and Ozzy once again reminds people that this tour is not about him planning to retire: “What I'm stopping is doing what I'm doing now, going around the world all the time," he reiterated. "I wish people would understand I'm not retiring. Is it my bad English accent? It's called the 'No More Tours' tour. It doesn't say 'No more tours ever.’ Rock ON, Ozzy!
