Ozzy: Another Album Would Be A Waste Of Money

Ozzy Osbourne says that he’d like to record another album – but is reluctant as he thinks it would be a waste of money.
With Black Sabbath bringing the curtain down on their career earlier this year, Ozzy has no plans to retire – but a new record from him might be a long way off.
He tells Rolling Stone: “I would like to do another record. But it's wasting money. Nobody's buying. You don't have to sell that many records any more to get a no.1. Depending how many records you've sold. You can have 30 or 40! Nobody buys them.”
When asked what he thought about Gene Simmons’ “rock is dead” comment, Ozzy replies: “Live, good rock music is not dead. But I think the record industry is really suffering now. There are only about two f***ing record companies left.
“When I went to the Grammys a couple of years ago, there'd be artists who'd go from a fucking laptop straight to the charts and release a record.
“It's really a sad thing for me. It's just changed so much. I said to Sharon, ‘It's like when vaudeville ended and f***ing modern music began. We're the history now.’
“And no matter what gimmick – what color album, vinyl, whatever, the fact of the matter is people don't want it. Why should people buy records when they can download it? You can get anything now online. And at the same time, I don't know how to turn the f***ing light on the monitor.”
