OZZY OSBOURNE: If I Do A BLACK SABBATH Tour, GEEZER's Got To Promise To Stop Moaning

Darryl Sterdan of the QMI Agency recently conducted an interview with legendary heavy metal singer Ozzy Osbourne. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.

QMI Agency: Was it tough to make "Scream" after losing Zakk Wylde? He was your guitarist and right-hand man for 20 years.

Ozzy: Let me set something straight: I didn't lose Zakk. It was time for me to move on. I love the guy as much as I've always loved him, and as much as I will always love him. He's like family, you know. I remember when he was in hospital a while back. He had a blood clot in his hip or his leg or something. I sent him an email that said, "Zakk, if you die before me, I'll fucking kill you!"

QMI Agency: Speaking of health, I understand you're writing a health advice column now.

Ozzy: It's just a bit of fun, you know. People ask me questions. Some are really interesting. I can relate to them. One I got recently was about something that drives me nuts. When I use public toilets, I wash my hands after I've been to the fucking bathroom. But then I have to open the fucking door where all those other filthy hands have been. What's the fucking deal with that? I'm not germophobic, but I don't want to touch some door handle that's had more dicks on it than a fucking whorehouse.

QMI Agency: Your son Jack is doing a documentary about you. Is he going to be nicer on you or tougher because you're his dad?

Ozzy: I have not seen a fucking frame of this thing. He's been at it so long I told him he should call it "Chinese Democracy 2". But I've heard it's very good. He's got an interview with Paul McCartney in it, for fuck's sake. But I said to him, "Jack, don't make me out like I'm the nicest guy." Because some people are going to go, "Oh yeah? Well, he was a fucking asshole when he come 'round to my house." I don't mind having everything come out. I've never been shy. I've done some pretty fucking stupid things in my life. Hell, I'm known for that.

QMI Agency: I spoke to Geezer Butler recently and he said he'd love to do one more BLACK SABBATH world tour.

Ozzy: I bet he would. (Laughs) Um, I'm not saying I wouldn't do it. But not right now. I've got another year to finish my tour. And if I do a BLACK SABBATH tour, he's got to promise to stop fucking moaning. Geezer, I love him. But he's always on about something. He's like, "Ohhhhh." And I'm like, "Yeah, great to see you too, Geezer."
