Ozzy Comments On Heaven And Hell
May 5, 2007
Launch Radio Networks reports: Ozzy Osbourne has nothing but good wishes for Heaven And Hell, the Black Sabbath offshoot featuring founding members Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler, along with the man who replaced Osbourne in Sabbath, Ronnie James Dio. Ozzy, who's toured in recent years with the original Sabbath, says he's long past holding any grudges. "I have no axes to grind with 'em anymore," he said. "I mean, people keep saying, 'We all know they're really Black Sabbath but they're going out as Heaven And Hell.' Hey, if they're having fun, who am I to say no? I don't hate anyone. I mean, Ronnie James Dio is a great singer. I mean, I'd be a liar if I said I wasn't pissed off when I got fired from Black Sabbath. I thought my career was over. In actual fact it was the best thing that ever happened to me, you know."

Ozzy recently said that the original Black Sabbath will record a new album next year, but recording plans for the legendary band have been announced and abandoned before.

And she goes, 'Don't worry, it's all under control.'I always think of the bad thing that can happen, but she's so clever at what she does. You know what, I always end up getting the wrong end of the stick and I get yelled at, you know, so I just go, 'Okay, babe, I love you, and you haven't let me down so far. God bless you. I'll do whatever you want me to do.'"

This summer's "free" Ozzfest will start on July 12 in Seattle. Information on obtaining tickets is available at the festival web site.

Osbourne will release his new solo album, 'Black Rain', on May 22. The first single from the disc is called "I Don't Wanna Stop".
