Ozzy Osbourne Vs The Machines

(Classic Rock) Ozzy Osbourne can live with his voice letting him down on stage - and he'd much rather run that risk than "hide behind a machine." The Black Sabbath singer tries to stay away from modern technology at all times, and says he's not impressed at the way it's affected his work.

Ozzy tells Consequence Of Sound: "My job is to get the audience having fun - but now you don't have to do that. I saw that Michael Jackson hologram on TV today. That was scary, that was. I said to my wife, 'I could just send my hologram on tour.'"

He continues: "You can't be just a live band. A friend of mine said recently, 'Nobody knows their craft any more; nobody is an artist. They just do it on machines now.' On the last Black Sabbath tour one of the support bands was going on, and I remember thinking to myself, 'They sound really good.' And they were lip-syncing to machines. That ain't cool, you know - that's phoney."

And he refuses to be tempted to resort to technical backup. Read more here.
