Black Sabbath’s legendary star Tony Iommi was the latest interview guest of The Eddie Trunk Podcast and talked about the current relationship status with The Prince of Darkness, Ozzy Osbourne.

While Tony Iommi confessed that he had no time to listen to Ozzy’s latest record, he also revealed why he chose to communicate with Ozzy with just using text messages.

Tony revealed the reason why texting is the common decision of the couple by saying that Ozzy doesn’t like to talk so much on the phone. As Tony stated, even they try the talk with the phonecall, the conversation ends in a short period because Ozzy is not even good at it.

Eddie Trunk asked:

“Are you in touch with him still?”

Here is what he told to Eddie Trunk:

“Yeah, we actually stay in touch via text, to be honest. And that’s best for Oz because he’s not very good on the phone; he doesn’t like to talk, so it’s all very short.

He used to call me up at bloody 2 o’clock in the morning. I’d be in bed and I’d go, ‘It’s 2 o’clock in the morning.’ ‘Oh, is it? Oh…’ So we decided we’d stay in touch via text.

So yeah, I do hear from him. I heard him last week, which is unusual, but normally yes, we do stay in touch.”
