Ozzy Osbourne Says He Wasn’t Allowed To Have Fun On Black Sabbath’s Final Tour

Last month, Ozzy Osbourne told The Inquirer that he “didn’t have a great time” on Black Sabbath’s final tour. Now, he echoed those comments once again during a recent interview with Rolling Stone. Here’s what he had to say:

“With Sabbath, all I am is a singer with a band. [My solo group] is a different thing. I’ve got a lot of freedom and I have fun with it. It’s not allowed to have fucking fun with Sabbath. It’s too serious. Tony [Iommi] was trying to have a go at me, saying, ‘Don’t fucking talk over my solos.’ I go, ‘Okay, are you sure? ‘Cause most of the fucking song is solos. The intro to the song is fuckin’ five minutes and then I sing for about two seconds and then it’s another one.’ With my own thing, I’m looking to have fun, and that’s what music’s about for me. I’m not a serious fucking singer. I’m just a frontman who’s trying to get the crowd going in front.”
