new Ozzy/Sabbath album?!?!

Ozzy Osbourne tells ABC News Radio that he and fellow original Black Sabbath members Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward "are in the talking process" regarding a reunion which will include the recording of a new studio album.

Osbourne stressed, however, that nothing is definite yet, in part because of the pressure the four of them will face if they make a new record. He said, "the problem that we have is that if we do an album and it's anything less than where we left off, it's gonna be a big anticlimax."

Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler said in an interview with AOL's Noisecreep that while all four of the band's original members are interested in taking part in a reunion, Ozzy Osbourne's current world solo tour will keep Sabbath on ice for the foreseeable future. Butler explained, "It's not going to happen next year. Ozzy's on tour with his own band for the next year or whatever . . . I'm sure Ozzy will say 'yes' and 'no' every week for the next year while he's on tour. It's one thing to want to do something like that just before you go out to tour a record. You say, 'Oh yeah, I'm gonna tour for the next five years.' And then six weeks into it, you can't wait to get home. So we'll just see how he feels when he finishes his Ozzy Osbourne tour."

This echoes remarks that Osbourne has made to The Pulse Of Radio about the chances of touring with Sabbath again. "You know what? I don't want to say yes, and I don't want to say no, because I've put my foot in my mouth so many times," he said. "If it's meant to happen, it will happen."


Ozzy and the band... if they do it, need to remember that music is contemporary ... every changing. People want to hear the classics, but more importantly, what is new. It's all about balance. The old too much is not good. None of them would have done only classics in their younger days.

I am interested to see what comes of it all. But blowing wind is all we've got to this point. That and little bitty wah-wah's about commitment from Geezer about Ozzy. whatever!

I love Sabbath, but......

I also Adore Ozzy in his Solo Career!

Listening to "Flying High Again" - 'Diary of a Madman' right Now.

It is not important to Me as a Fan of Ozzy whether or not he Reunites with Sabbath.

That's just an Opinion.

Right. Sounds like there is more than just conceptual talk going on. However...Ozzy's totally correct in the assessment.

What is a HUGE mistake is going on the road like he is right now with Scream and only singing one fricking song off the album. NO WONDER they report it's a "NOSTALGIA" tour.

He really should have alot more of his current album filling the setlist.


That's what Geezer is saying too...that they will sing the classics instead of new stuff. Have to agree with him there 100%. Really don't get why the past is so predominant.
