Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi explained in an interview with Rolling Stone the reason why he and Ozzy Osbourne only text each other now and don’t talk on the phone. Iommi is currently promoting his new solo song “Scent Of The Dark“, released to promote a perfume developed by him with Italian perfumier Xerjoff.
“We’re in touch quite a lot. We don’t really speak because we are useless on the phone, the pair of us. I think we stopped that when he used to phone me at 2 o’clock in the morning and I’d go, ‘Oz, it’s 2 o’clock in the morning.’ ‘Oh, oh, sorry. Alright. Bye.'”
“He forgets about what time it is in England, and of course when the phone goes at that time of the morning you think, ‘Oh, Christ. What’s that?’ Somebody’s died or something has happened’. And of course it’s him going, ‘Oh, oh, oh, oh, sorry. I didn’t know it was that time.’ So we tend to sort of just text now.”
The legendary Black Sabbath singer Ozzy Osbourne revealed in an new episode of the show “Ozzy Speaks” on SiriusXM’s Ozzy’s Boneyard (Transcribed by Blabbermouth) that guitarists Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi and Zakk Wylde will play in his next album.
“On this new album, I’m working with Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi and Zakk Wylde. You just write the song and you just ask them to sing (or play) what you (give them).”
I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
