Ozzy Confirms Black Sabbath Reunion
After months of rumors and speculation about a possible Black Sabbath reunion, Ozzy has finally confirmed that both sides have been talking. Ozzy was fired from Black Sabbath in 1979 and went on to have a very successful solo career. The band did reunite once before in 1997 releasing an album called Reunion. Black Sabbath with Ozzy Osbourne remains one of the most influential bands of all time.
Ozzy told Billboard while promoting his upcoming second book, "Trust Me, I'm Dr. Ozzy," about the swirling Sabbath reunion rumors.
Yes, it's a very, very strong possibility, It's in the very early stages, so we haven't recorded anything yet. If it works out, it'll work out. If it doesn't, I'll keep doing my thing.
The Black Sabbath guys were trying to keep things on the hush hush, but apparently a trusted source near Tommy Iommi let it out causing the guitarist to apologize to his band mates. I guess we will have to wait and see what happens or not happens.
Meanwhile, both Tony Iommi and Ozzy Osbourne are out promoting their new books: Tony’s "Iron Man: My Journey Through Heaven And Hell With Black Sabbath," will be released in the US on November 1, Ozzy Osbourne’s “Trust Me, I'm Dr. Ozzy," is due October 11.
