With "Black Rain" coming out on May 22, Ozzy Osbourne managed to take some time off thinking about Black Sabbath. Though is strong as a solo artist, the quirky singer is longing for the band's reunion that he believed only coming to sense when he fronted it.
"It would be so easy for us to get in and out of a studio and make an album. But if it's not up to the par of when I left, why do it? It will destroy the f***ing legacy of Black Sabbath, and the legend of Black Sabbath," he said in an interview. Ozzy was asked to leave the band in 1979 after internal conflicts and an evident lack of commitment occurred. Rainbow's Ronnie James Dio then filled in his position.
"I haven't dropped the idea, because Tony and I are talking alright about it. I haven't abandoned the idea - like, 'If my album does well, f*** Black Sabbath.' It's what I want to do. We have repaired some of the damage between each other, and now, I'd like to do a really good f***ing Black Sabbath album," he continued.
As of the Dio-fronted Black Sabbath, the band is touring this year using the moniker Heaven and Hell. Ozzy wishes them well although putting doubt over the band's future plan and wishing original Sabbath instead.
