OZZY WORKS ON NEW ALBUM

Published in News

As we await the next, and likely final, move by Black Sabbath, its frontman is gearing up

An introduction to such a performance may be the hardest part and with the least interest if I dare say. I have no inspiration for an introduction whatsoever to be honest with you. The unique sentiment, that I attended the last performance of the half a century history of Black Sabbath, and of the metal itself, all set at the neighborhood where they were born and made their first steps, completely justifies the way someone, who grew up listening to this huge band, feels.

Hold on to your pool chairs: All three of Penelope Spheeris' entertaining,

Sharon Osbourne addressed her separation from her husband of 33 years, legendary rock singer Ozzy Osbourne, in her return on CBS's "The Talk" on Tuesday, May 10. The 63-year-old confirmed reports that she had kicked Ozzy out of the house after he allegedly cheated on her, but added that he had now returned and she had since moved out.
A source told E! News that Ozzy had agreed to leave the couple's house at least temporarily, and that the break-up had nothing to do with Ozzy's sobriety. The BLACK SABBATH singer has reportedly been clean and sober for more than three years after falling off the wagon for an 18-month period in 2011 and 2012.
Asked if it was true that she kicked Ozzy out of the house, or if that was just "made up, "Sharon told her "The Talk" co-hosts: "No [it's not a rumor]. It's true!" As to whether or not that situation was permanent, Sharon said: "No, he's back, and I'm out of the house."

For the first time in more than a decade, Ozzy Osbourne and Zakk Wylde are together again.
Known as one of rock's most lethal singer and guitarist pairings, the two will hit the road for a series of Ozzy headlining shows in the U.S. this summer and fall, beginning July 14.
While they've performed together over the years, these shows are the first collaboration for the duo for a full tour since 2006. These dates also mark Ozzy's first solo tour in the U.S. in years beyond one Ozzy & Friends performance at the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience in New Orleans, LA in October 2015.
Ozzy and Zakk first teamed up 30 years ago when Zakk (whom Ozzy describes as "a fucking absolutely amazing guitar player") joined Ozzy's band in 1987; they last recorded in 2007 on Ozzy's acclaimed "Black Rain" album.
In addition to reuniting with Zakk Wylde on guitar, Ozzy's band will include longtime collaborators Rob "Blasko" Nicholson (bass), Tommy Clufetos (drums) and Adam Wakeman (keyboards). Ozzy's tour dates kick off in July at the Rock USA festival in Oshkosh, Wisconisn, with additional dates to be announced in the coming weeks.

Ozzy Osbourne spoke about to SiriusXM host Jose Mangin about the possibility of a new solo album from the BLACK SABBATH singer once the legendary heavy metal band has completed its "The End" tour in early 2017. Ozzy said: "I'm not retiring, I'm gonna carry on. I've been writing with Billy Morrison [who currently plays guitar in Billy Idol's band and co-wrote songs on Idol's latest album] and [Idol] guitarist] Steve Stevens. [Steve is] not gonna be in my band, he's with Billy Idol. But he's a friend of [Morrison's] and [Morrison] plays with Billy Idol. I said, 'I've got some ideas,' and we worked it out. There's one song that right now is called 'Crack Cocaine'. It's like a bluesy thing."

Sharon Osbourne opens up on her husband Ozzy's health issues, which has caused the Black Sabbath singer to cancel recent appearances on the band’s reunion tour. She says, “He’s doing so much better. He had sinusitis, which went to bronchitis and he said that he felt like he had the Pacific Ocean in his ear, and he couldn't hear properly - it’s been a nightmare. He had to cancel four shows, they’re all going to be rescheduled, we’re working on it now. To have a responsibility of performing with his band Black Sabbath, the crew, the fans, even the opening act, just sat at home like this - waiting, waiting, waiting - and he feels that huge responsibility. He feels guilty for being sick.”
She continues that he is on the mend and “he will be in Seattle on Saturday. He will be ready to rock!

BILL WARD VS OZZY

Published in News

Exiled Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward


has lashed out at his former bandmates for attacking him with “nothing but insults and false remarks” since his contentious separation from the group back in 2012.
In a lengthy post on his Facebook page, Ward singles out Ozzy Osbourne in particular, declaring that the singer’s “rhetoric above all has brought me the most discord.” In May of 2012, Osbourne declared that Ward couldn’t remember his drum parts, and wasn’t in shape to handle the band’s 2013 world tour: “He was so out of condition, and the drummer is the most demanding job in the whole band.”
Osbourne, guitarist Tony Iommi and bassist Geezer Butler wound up recording the band’s reunion album 13 with Rage Against the Machine drummer Brad Wilk taking Ward’s spot, and toured behind the record with Tommy Clufetos from Osbourne’s solo band sitting behind the kit.
The group is reportedly discussing one last studio album and a farewell tour, but Ward says he “will not participate in any musical undertakings until a righting of the wrongs spoken against me has been achieved.” He also re-states his demand for a “signable” contract, which was the issue that he says caused him to opt out of the reunion in the first place.

Last week, Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward disputed Ozzy Osbourne‘s claims that Ward’s physical problems were the main reason he wasn’t part of Sabbath’s reunion. Instead, Bill said, there was acontractual dispute.

Now Ozzy’s firing back, saying not only is Bill unhealthy, he’s fat, too.

“I don’t think he could have done the gig, to be honest. He’s incredibly overweight,” Osbourne told the NY Daily News. “A drummer has to be in shape. He’s already had two heart attacks. I don’t want to be responsible for his life.”

Previously, Ozzy publicly questioned Bill’s mental faculties, telling a British music magazine that during initial rehearsals for the reunion tour, Ward had a bunch of Post-It notes all over his drums. When Osbourne asked what they were for, Bill allegedly replied that he needed them to remember what he was doing.
