Dave Mustaine talked with Blabbermouth about Ozzy Osbourne and KISS’ retirement. Megadeth will be with Ozzy on his final tour.
Read what he said:
“KISS is one of those bands that we love, because they say they’re gonna go away and they don’t. I love the band.
“I know that they’ve broken up, they’ve gone away, they’ve retired probably as many times as Ozzy said ‘No More Tours.’ I think there’s a ‘No More Tours 10’ coming up or something like that.
“But I don’t want them to stop playing; I never want Ozzy to stop playing. I’m a music fan. The thought of Ozzy not playing music, to me, is incomprehensible. When I see my peers and my contemporaries, my friends, the guys that are in my world, I don’t think of them doing anything but playing music…
“I kind of look at it like this: There are people in the music world that I think probably should hang it up. But it’s not for me to say. And I would hate for someone to tell me, ‘Dave, you’re too old,’ or, ‘You shouldn’t be doing this anymore.’
“I think that that’s a pretty mean thing to say to somebody. But I, myself, I’ll know when I can’t do it. If it gets too hard to sing and play at the same time, I won’t do it anymore.
“I’ve already had to have my neck put back together from headbanging, so I don’t really know how much more the old skeleton can take. But until then, I’m gonna keep doing my job every day and I’m gonna do it as best as I can.”
