Ozzy Osbourne Bandmate Fears Imminent Death


Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi fears that himself, Ozzy Osbourne, Geezer Butler, and Bill Ward are nearing death, as ‘it’s coming on us quick.’ Ozzy Osbourne discussed a painful disorder recently.

He said if they’re alive, he’d like to see Black Sabbath reunite at the opening ceremony of The Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in 2022.

“I think Ozzy said ‘Yes’ first and then I was asked,” says Tony in a new Birmingham Mail interview with Geezer Butler.

“I said ‘Yes, if everybody’s up for that’… if we can remember the songs.”

“My answer was ‘We might not be alive then’.

“(Now) it’s coming on us quick.”

I heard you were going to do the 100m, I ask Geezer.

“Yes,” he replies. “The 100m to bed.”

Butler and Iommi reunited for a ’50 Years of Black Sabbath’ exhibit launch in Birmingham.

“It’s fantastic to see our music celebrated in this way,” enthused guitarist Iommi, via Express and Star.

“It’s a great honor for us to be here and it’s great to see so many people here.”

Butler added: “It’s incredible, you just don’t realise that 50 years has gone by so fast.

“Walking around the exhibition brings back so many memories that I just can’t believe were so long ago.

“All the hard work that has gone into it is just overwhelming, to see it really makes you understand what it took to put together.

“It’s great so many fans wanted to be involved with it.”

“For us, this happening is incredible. Birmingham accepting us and celebrating us really is incredible,” Tony told the crowd.

“We never could have imagined that when we started in Aston, we would be involved in something like this,” Geezer continued.
