Although the two former Black Sabbath members, Ozzy Osbourne and Tony Iommi, recently paired up to perform at the Commonwealth games last month, Osbourne still unconvinced over the possibility of making an album with Iommi.

In a recent interview, the singer hinted that a collaborative album might happen after Iommi recorded guitar parts for the two tracks on Osbourne’s latest album. Osbourne stated:

“If Ozzy Osbourne and Tony Iommi do an album together, it’s going to sound like a Sabbath album.

“Tony was the sound of Sabbath. There’s no getting away from the fact that, when he plays with me, it’ll be some kind of a reflection of that. Maybe the tracks he did on my album was like what Sabbath should have been had we stayed together.”

However, the singer wants to take his album away from Sabbath. “We put that band to bed. And if he wants to turn it into another Sabbath album, I’m not doing it.” Osbourne also shared the story why Iommi never previously guested on one of his records. He said:

“It was just that I never asked him.

“I sang on one of his albums, but I’d never given it a thought that he could play on one of mine, to be honest.”
