January 25, 2010 1 comment

Ozzy Osbourne may not be planning a Black Sabbath reunion, but he is in the final stages of recording his next solo album. The disc was originally titled Soul Sucka, but Ozzy recently changed his mind about that. “When we put that on the Internet none of my fan base liked the title,” says Osbourne.

“They were like, ‘I can’t imagine me walking around the fucking house with the words ‘Soul Sucka’ on my T-shirt.’ So I was like, ‘Fuck it. I’ve got to come up with something else!’ ” The now untitled set is due out in July, the same month Osbourne says that Ozzfest will return after a one-year break. “After Ozzfest I’m doing the most extensive tour of my life,” he says. “It’ll be something like, 3,025 dates.”

Ozzy Regrets Doing Reality TV Show

Ozzy Osbourne says his family’s MTV reality show was an “experiment that went wildly out of control”.

The Osbournes, which ran from 2002 to 2005, showed the often chaotic domestic life of the star, his wife Sharon and children Jack and Kelly.

It introduced the Black Sabbath singer to a new crop of fans, who were hooked by his bumbling ineptitude at everyday tasks like working a TV remote.

But the star told BBC Radio 4’s Front Row the attention was “really creepy”.

“It was as if I went to bed in one world and woke up in a completely different world,” the 60-year-old said.

“We went down to this market in Beverley Hills where you can just walk around artwork and statues and dolls and all this stuff and I got this really creepy feeling.

“I look around. People aren’t looking, but I could feel eyes on me.

“I thought I was getting paranoid or something.”

The star, who is promoting his autobiography I Am Ozzy, said he was not keen to repeat the experience – even though his wife has forged a career as a TV personality on shows like the X Factor and America’s Got Talent.

“I don’t really want to do TV. I don’t like doing TV much. Sharon loves it.”

Ozzy To Perform With Metallica and Other Big Names Set To Jam

June 21, 2009 Leave a comment

Ozzy Osbourne took Metallica on their first major tour over twenty years ago, now he will be their special guest at an event celebrating the 25th anniversary of a place that for many years didn’t deem him worthy of admission: the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is celebrating their 25th anniversary with a star heavy two-day event at Madison Square Garden later this month. Many of Hall’s inductees will be jamming on stage with other big name stars as their special guests. They announced Ozzy as Metallica’s special guests as an after thought in an October 2nd update that went largely unnoticed. Luckily, BW&BK caught on to the news and gave it the attention it deserves with a report late Tuesday night.

Metallica isn’t the only one bring out the big guns to join them on stage. Jeff Beck and Buddy Guy will jam with Eric Clapton, while Annie Lennox and Lenny Kravitz will join Aretha Franklin on October 30th, the same night Metallica takes the stage with the Godfather of metal.

On the events kickoff night, October 29th, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band will be joined by Sam Moore and Darlene Love, while BB King, John Legend and Smokey Robinson will play with Stevie Wonder. Crosby, Stills & Nash will be playing with James Taylor, Jackson Browne, and Bonnie Raitt. Paul Simon will be pulling double duty as a solo artist and with Simon and Garfunkel. Simon will be joined by Little Anthony and The Imperials and Dion for his solo set.

Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard and Sting have been announced as special guests but the events website didn’t mention who they would be joining on stage. Poor U2 doesn’t have any announced guests on the site at press time. Maybe they’ll pull a Dylan out of their hat? Or a Rolling Stone or one of the Sirs? As in Sir Paul or Sir Elton? Not likely but if we’ll keep any eye on developments as the event quickly approaches.
