One of the greatest vocalists of all time, Ozzy Osbourne, has talked in the interview with Broken Record Podcast and shared an unknown story about being fired from the Black Sabbath.
As you might already know, Ozzy and the guitarist of the band, Tony Iommi, weren’t getting along well, and they had so much trouble in the 70s. Because of this, the band decided to kick Ozzy Osbourne in April 1979.
In the conversation, Ozzy has stated that he wasn’t having a good time with the band at the time, didn’t even enjoy the tours and concerts. He was just bored. So, Ozzy was actually looking for being fired.
Here is what Ozzy Osbourne:
“No. You know what? To be perfectly true, I asked for it. I asked, ‘Why do you have to fly all over the world to do nothing?’ At one point, I was going, ‘Well, Queen did this one, we should do another…
And I said one day, ‘Don’t you think we’ve got a problem if the bands that we once influenced are now influencing us?’ And I wasn’t any better than them. We needed rescuing, but we didn’t trust anybody.”
“I was bored with the concerts, I was bored with the recording, I was bored with everything, I wasn’t into it. The problem is: where do I go? I was thinking, ‘If I’m done, I’m done, I’m never gonna do it.”
