Ozzy is back with Zakk and has plans for some tour dates this summer and a new album in 2018.

Nice. Hopefully we'll get something better than what we've been getting in most of his 2000 era releases. Down to Earth was ok, but I lost interest after that.

As good as Gus G is as a guitarist i just cannot see him being good at writing new Ozzy tracks. But saying that Ozzy hasn't had a big hit album since 'No More Tears' IMHO. That album was wrote mostly by Lemmy and i think that is what Ozzy albums are lacking. Ozzy needs someone to bring something to his music to make it great. It'll be good to hear Ozzy playing Live with Zakk, but are we going to get another fly by album ?.

Good news! 8) And lets hope after the long break Zakk is as fresh and hungry as he was in '88 to play with Ozzy again!
And lets hope he will be more involved in the songwriting for the new album too instead of hiring composers who don't understand how Ozzy songs should be build.

To be honest, much of Ozzy's stuff after Ozzmosis is dross in my opinion. Ignoring all the dog shit compilation albums that have the same re-hashed songs on, the albums have just been generally weak and I think much of that is down to the artistic direction of his band. Black Rain was a glorified Black Label Society album really, and Scream is just a very confused sounding album. Scream is the end result of two completely different stylistic directions mushed together into one big pile of shit. Furthermore, I wasn't keen on Gus as a guitarist to begin with and he was piss poor when I saw him live. He's a pro tools guitarist.

Oh, and did I mention Under Cover? Yeah don't get me started on that rubbish.

What I'd like to see is Ozzy harking back to the good old days, like Priest did with Angel of Retribution.

He played last night didn't he? Or was it the night before? First show with Zakk in about 10 odd years.

I wonder if Zakk has had to practice any of the old numbers or if he perhaps did a quick jam and it all came flooding back?

Zakk is always posting videos of him playing at home and on the road. He plays a lot of His and Randy’s song with ozzy. He did recently start posting:playing them more lately due to his concerts with ozzy I imagine.



Speaking of that...that’s what brought me here. Holy shit does ozzy sound like crap...He just looks, sounds and acts completely out of it from all the you tube videos I just watched of the past few concerts over the last week. They must have tuned down another couple steps as it’s very noticeable now. It’s almost like he is just talking lol. Zakk doesn’t look to enthused as well. Not in an angry way but he knows his hero’s time is up.

Hopefully ozzy is just tired ands it’s not a true representation of how he sounds lately. His voice was the bests it’s been in 20 years for the 13 album.
