In a new interview, Ozzy Osbourne says if Black Sabbath don’t reunite, we won’t shed a tear over it.
When asked what’s up with Sabbath, Ozzy responded, “I haven’t got a clue. If they want to call me, they can call me. I never say never. If it works, fine. If it don’t, I’ll move on. It ain’t the end of the world. I ain’t gonna get a box of Kleenex and cry my eyes out for the rest of my life.”
Damn, Ozzy. Seems like he just doesn’t care if Black Sabbath reunites again. And I can’t say I’m all that excited about the prospect either. Why is it that the band just can’t get together and fucking tour?
“Well, we’re not kids anymore,” he said. “I don’t wanna bullshit them and I don’t want them to bullshit me. Why should I go back to that and be unhappy when I’m happy right now? I mean, I would love to do a great album with Black Sabbath. I would love to get the credit we so roundly deserve. At the same time, the pressure would be really intense. I could go tomorrow and make an album with them, but it wouldn’t necessarily be something I would be proud of.”
What would Ozzy change about Blizzard Of Ozz and Diary Of A Madman?
“Nothing! I wouldn’t change anything. Why would I want to change them? They were perfectly good the way they were. I wasn’t a fan of replacing the original things, but that was purely a business decision to get people off our backs. I didn’t want to do it, but they forced my hand, you know. But really, that’s a question you should ask my wife. I’m just happy we could go back and use the original parts.”
