During the recent interview with The Times, Black Sabbath singer Ozzy Osbourne remembered Black Sabbath’s farewell tour and explained how he feels about working with Tony Iommi.
He has revealed that why he doesn’t want to work with Tony Iommi and said:
“Do I like working with him? Not really. Do I like him as a person? Yeah, I love him as a person. But if people was to say to me, ‘Was there a leader of Black Sabbath?’
I’d have to say it was Tony Iommi, because without his guitar riffs, we’d be still sitting in fucking rehearsal with our thumbs up our arses going, ‘What do we do now?'”
Apparently, Ozzy doesn’t want to work with him because Tony is leader of the band. Ozzy wants more control and freedom. Click here to an another interview about this topic.
He also described how he felt about making a farewell tour with Black Sabbath after all these years. He said:
“I’ll tell you what it was like. It’s like when you’re younger and you met a girl, Susie, and you break up and you don’t see her for 30 years.
Then she’s in town and you go, ‘Oh, I’ll give Susie a call,’ because your memory only remembers the good parts and you can narrow it then to a week and you go, ‘I remember that week and it was lovely.’
But then you go back and you go, ‘I forgot the fucking four and three-quarter years I was fucking miserable.'”
And then, he talked about his farewell tour with own solo band and said:
“I’m in control and it’s so much better. I get more pleasure out of doing the gigs now.”
