Classic Ozzy Osbourne Interview Gets Animated
In 1992, Ozzy Osbourne was getting ready to retire; he would soon kick off his "No More Tours" tour, a reference to his 1991 album No More Tears. As he thought about what he would do next, he worried that he was too typecast into a certain role due to his heavy metal image, and some of his antics over the years (biting the heads off of doves, peeing on the Alamo, etc., etc.).
Another thing he was known for: upsetting Cardinal John O'Connor, who denounced Osbourne's music. But in this interview, he notes that he believes in God, he simply doesn't go to church (can you imagine the ruckus that would occur if he did?). He also noted that religious leaders probably wished that they were able to pull the crowds that Ozzy and his peers did.
As for Ozzy's retirement? Well, we know how that went. By 1995, he'd returned with Ozzmosis, and in the years since has toured and recorded prolifically, both on his own and with Black Sabbath. Watch the video here.
