OZZY OSBOURNE, who famously mounted a 'No More Tours' trek back in 1992, is back on the road for the 'No More Tours-2' tour that will take the legendary singer around the world to play for his legion of fans one last time. Ozzy is quick to point out that the current tour is NOT the end of his performance career, just the end of touring, hence the name of the tour, which started out as a play on words dating back to the original 1992 'Retirement' tour, named after his then-current album, 'No More Tears.' Incidentally, that 'retirement' lasted all of 3 years, and Ozzy has been on the road ever since. But what of Ozzy's plans after the current tour ends? In a recent Rolling Stone Magazine interview, The Ozzman spoke of his desire to record a new solo album post-tour, or at the very least, a handful of new songs. He mentioned that he's already got ideas for 8 or 9 new songs and that "I've just got to sit down and work them out. There's never enough time in this house." The most recent Ozzy Osbourne solo album was 2010's 'Scream,' and of course the past few years had Ozzy and his pals in Black Sabbath performing on their farewell tour. Ozzy has acknowledged that he's been advised that a full-length album probably wouldn't be cost effective as sales of whole albums have steadily decreased, with music fans opting to buy/download indiviual songs instead. Although he has been 'waffling' about whether or not to record an entire album, Ozzy has offered that he'd maybe do "a couple of songs,and put those out." Rock On, Ozzy!
