    Ozzy Says He Has No Intentions Of Retiring

    Ozzy Osbourne recently spoke to Kara A. Medalis of WWE.com about his upcoming appearance on World Wrestling Entertainment's "SmackDown" and his new album, "Black Rain". A few excerpts follow:

    On his involvement with WWE:

    "Working with WWE, it's fun, you know. I'm not new to wrestling. I started doing some stuff with the British Bulldogs many, many years ago. I became a very good friend of Andre the Giant when he was alive. I used to go drinking with him, and he was such a lovely man."

    On this year's Ozzfest:

    "Why's it free? You better ask my wife about that, I don't know. That's her job! I'm glad she's doing it that way though. Ultimately it comes back to the kids. Normally they have to pay a couple hundred bucks a ticket, I'm guessing. I hope we can give them a good show. I'm doing the biggest tour of my life."

    On addressing the state of the world and its effect on his life on "Black Rain":

    "People are saying to me that I've gotten very political. I haven't got very political, but I watch a lot of documentaries, like on the History Channel, Discovery, A&E and so on. What I get interested in, in the news is this fucking war that's going on. If it gets in my head and has an effect, it's going to come out in my music I suppose.

    “There's quite a bit of anti-war and questionary lyrics there, which is not a new thing for me. People just think that when I was singing with BLACK SABBATH, all we ever sang about was the devil and the dark forces or whatever, but it's not true. There were a lot of political things, a lot of anti-war things there."

    On his new single, "I Don't Wanna Stop", which holds special meaning to the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer:

    "I'm 59 this year. People keep saying to me, 'You'll be quitting soon, retiring.' I don't wanna stop! You'll know when I want to stop because I won't be doing it anymore. I've tried not doing it, but it's not like I've got a job. I'd miss the fans. I'd miss the buzz, seeing the crowd going crazy."

    On wrestling fans:

    "I've been doing arenas and gigs and festivals for the best part of 30, 40 years. The fucking fans of wrestling go absolutely crazy. I thought nobody could get louder than a rock concert, but was I ever wrong!"

    More over here.

    it is really bad besides the good solo, but i am glad that he is atleast fast paced again. let's hear some of the rest. remember, judas priest's revolution sucked but most of the rest of the album ruled.
