I heard about this on the radio on the way to work this morning. Too much pain from back injury/surgeries is the reason he gives for not touring any more. They did say on the radio that Ozzy would still perform some, just not on the road.
Glad I got to see him a few years ago here in Syracuse. 7th row, center. He's a funny S.O.B. on stage sometimes. He broke out a fire hose and doused the first few rows with it, harmlessly of course. Twice.
He may be done touring but I don't think he's done making music, his voice is fine, that was proven at the NFL game where he performed at the end of last year and sounded great, especially for a guy his age.
I saw Ozzy at The Breakers in Palm Beach late last Saturday afternoon. He looked like hell. However it was the Cavallino Ferrari meet and he was there- and ambulatory which is saying something. Saw Trump too- on Sunday. He's a tall MF'er. Firm hand shake too...
God bless em. My mom suffered from it for 15 years before succumbing to it. It hits everyone who gets it a little differently and it's just a flat out cruel disease. Hopefully medical advances will help ease his journey
Black Sabbath the original heavy metal band , their 1st 5 albums was their classics imo..
I saw hem several times back in the 70s great ,1 show front row ,my ears were buzzing for 2 days ,with blue oyster cult ,and Alvin bishop. It’s sad to see an end to a era ,last month my GuitarHero Jeff Beck Dies ,when living in the U.K he playing many small venues always great.
Enjoy the memories, that sabbath live dvd of blu ray I will have to get. watching concerts with friends is ’ a good way to spend on a weekend .
Seems that Sabotage still today is a bit underated, a prog metal masterpiece and best of its genre with Ozzy singing at a higher note on that one. Their freedom from scam managers. Awesome on Reunion (1998).
Hes just another man. Were all equal in the end with no control of our immorality. Know God and follow his way. We ALL will face judgement day. You ll either have enternal life with him or seperated from his grace.
It was clear he has Parkinson’s decades ago. I watched my grandfather deteriorate over time with this disease. He talked about how he was seeing stars and outer space. Not a good way to go. Brain literally turns into sand.
Growing up, Black Sabbath was ubiquitous as was Led Zeppelin and early Aerosmith but I wasn't a big fan. So I went to see Van Halen's first tour where they completely played their first album prior to Black Sabbath as the headliner. After Van Halen finished, droves of people walked out. My friend wanted to do the same but I convinced him to stay. I figured we'll wait and see how they do first. I have to say they were much better live. I was very impressed with the show and amazed that Ozzy could sing as well as he did considering he was stoned out of his mind. He kept tilting back and forth and at times, looked as though he wanted to nod out. Anyhow, he's had a very long run, cheers!
