OZZY OSBOURNE - "Sabbath Is Not My Band... I'm A Member Of A Band Called BLACK SABBATH"; New Solo Album Song Titles Revealed

In a new interview with Consequence Of Sound, Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne discusses his new collection, Memoirs Of A Madman, and his ongoing solo career.

Asked what he thought made it possible for him to return with another greatest hits album, Ozzy states: "I’m going to be doing another Black Sabbath album and another tour, and I thought, 'Well, people are going to think I’m not doing my solo stuff anymore'. So, Memoirs Of A Madman is to let people know I’m not retired from my solo career. I am going to continue after Black Sabbath, because this next Black Sabbath thing is the final thing. We’re not doing it anymore. After that, I’m gonna continue my solo career, so all of this is really a collection of songs that I recorded over the years and videos of things I’ve done to let everybody know that I’ve not retired from my solo stuff, and I’ll be continuing after the Sabbath thing is finished."

On whether he's often asked about retiring, Osbourne says, "Oh God, all the time. When I did my last tour, I did a thing called “meet and greet” where I meet people and say hi to them. You’d be surprised how many people ask if I’m ever doing another solo record! Why would you even ask that? I’ve never said I wasn’t. Black Sabbath is a different thing. When I do my stuff, I’m jumping around like a jackrabbit. Sabbath is not my band. I’m a member of a band called Black Sabbath."

In regards to his next solo album, "I’ve written three songs. One is called “Crack Cocaine”, one is called “Mr. Armageddon”, and I can’t remember the other title. See, as I’m doing this Black Sabbath thing, I’m not just sitting on my butt watching the days go by. I’m 66 in a couple of weeks, so I ain’t got that many living years, that’s for sure. [Laughs] The essence of what I’m saying is, I don’t want to finish the Black Sabbath tour and go, 'Ah, what do I do now?' So as I’m getting downtime, I am doing some writing when I can."
