Ozzy Osbourne: Rock won’t die. The sixty five year old English rock vocalist and television personality became well known in the early 1970‘s as Black Sabbath’s lead vocalist himself doesn’t known any bands but is quite sure that rock music will never die and always be around. Known for ‘Godfather of heavy metal’ reveals he doesn’t keep up with the generation of musicians and not who will follow in their footsteps when they’re gone, does say that fans will always be around, who will want to watch band’s play live. He said:
”I was doing an interview the other day and someone asked me what the latest band I liked was, and I shouted ‘I don’t know any f**king new bands!’ They said to me, ‘So you guys are done?’
”To be honest, I don’t know who’s going to be the next big thing. I do know that rock won’t die, though – and you’ll never kill live music.”
The band which includes himself, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler have sold over seventy million since they formed in 1968 says he thinks many cither band can enjoy such long success. He explained:
”When we first played in London, one of the first places we played was – what’s its f***ing name, on Wardour Street … The Marquee Club! People thought we were f***ing nuts, and we probably were back then.
”Now here I am 45 years later and still doing everywhere and getting ready to headline Hyde Park [at the Barclaycard British Summer Time festival in London this summer].
”I was saying to [wife] Sharon back the other day that there aren’t many bands this far into their career that can still sell out shows … let alone play Hyde Park. We’ve had an incredible time so far and we’re not done yet! I still love it.”
He added to Kerrang! magazine:
”I’m really honoured and to be honest with you, it’s all too much for me to take in. The last album we did was in 1979 – that’s 35 years back down the road. I keep pinching myself about the opportunities that we have now.”
