In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, the iconic vocalist Ozzy Osbourne talked about his projects during the lockdown period due to Covid-19 and also revealed his plans for the future of his music career.
As you might remember, Black Sabbath‘s legendary frontman Ozzy Osbourne has been suffering from several medical issues over the course of the last few years, including a traumatic fall and pneumonia. At the beginning of 2020, Ozzy publicly revealed that he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in February 2019.
Although Ozzy previously stated that he didn’t feel like he was totally back, he and his family have been participating non-stop on various projects. Most recently, A&E Network announced that ‘Biography: The Nine Lives Of Ozzy Osbourne,’ which portrays the music career and personal life of Ozzy Osbourne would be released on September 7, 2020.
One of the most iconic voices of metal music, Ozzy Osbourne joined an interview with Rolling Stone magazine to talk about the current status of his various projects. Ozzy also shared the details of his plans for the future of his music.
Here’s what Ozzy Osbourne stated about why he still participates various projects regardless of his age or health problems:
“You know what? I’m here for a purpose. So many of my past friends are no longer here. And when you’re riding the crest of the wave, you think you’re there forever but you’re not.
What else am I gonna do? Sit around and remember when I was famous? As far as what I do as a job, it keeps me alive. I suppose I was probably born to do what I do. My life has been nothing but an amazing journey.”
Furthermore, Osbourne shared some plans which would make the fans quite happy. Apparently, Ozzy believes he hasn’t done his final gig yet, so the fans could be able to see more of his music eventually when these challenging days are over. He also stated that he would feel like he finished his job only after the last gig he was planning to do.
Here’s what Ozzy asserted about the final gig and his possible retirement plans:
“I’m working out every day. I’m doing the best I can. I’ve got to do gigs. I haven’t done my last gig yet. Even if it’s just to do one gig, I will do a gig. Then I’ll feel like I finished my job.”
Retire from what? It’s not a job. How can you retire from a rock band? It’s like saying, don’t plug in your amp. I don’t know anything else. I’ll retire when they put the fucking nail in the lid.”
