This is Ozzy's first performance on stage since his "life-altering" surgery on June 13th, which involved removing and realigning pins in his neck and back.

The two metal legends performed the classic Black Sabbath songs, "Paranoid" and "Iron Man" followed by a huge fireworks display! They were joined by drummer Tommy Clufetos, who performed with Black Sabbath on their farewell tour, as well as bassist and keyboardist Adam Wakeman. Solid Gold Hits shared the Video (below)

"I have a lot of great memories of making the album. We worked hard on the record with John Purdell and Duane Baron, who became extra two members of the band. Before we went into the studio, we discussed what we were going to do — everything was planned. It's so nice when you get a producer who's more like a part of the band than them saying, 'nah, you do it this way.' Because we write them and when you write the songs, you have a mental picture of how you think you want it to sound. Sometimes you're surprised for the better, but other times you're disappointed, but John and Duane did an extraordinary job on the album. It was really, really well done. Every song was worked on for a long time and we spent extra time trying to get things right. But there was also lots of goofing around and we had a good time making it. And Zakk's playing on it is spectacular." - Ozzy Osbourne

"On the first record, it was, like, 'I can't believe I'm here.' I had definitely crawled into the fire and kept thinking. 'You gotta produce. You got to come up with some cool stuff.' On 'No More Tears', I guess I was more relaxed. With Ozzy, whenever we're playing riffs, he would be like 'keep playing that riff.' Pretty much every time he just gets up there and starts singing what comes to him naturally, he knocks it out of the park all the time. I mean, there's very, very few times where he's actually said, 'No, let me come back to that. I don't like what I'm singing. I'll come up with something better.' Whatever you're hearing on the record is pretty much first thing he started singing that naturally came out of him, that he started hearing in his head. Which is amazing. My love for him and admiration for him has just gotten even stronger and bigger over the years. It's bigger than the music. It's always a good time whenever we're together, it's always like it's a laugh fest, and then making the records is beyond hilarious as well." - Zakk Wylde

Ozzy Receives 'Man Of The Year - Lifetime Achievement' Award from GQ Magazine

Capture-ozzy-2

Ozzy's interview with GQ Magazine is one for the books, to say the least.  This is personally one of the best interviews with The Prince of Darkness I've ever seen.

He opens up about how the lockdown has affected his mental health:

"I'm going super nuts now. I bought an air rifle and I'm shooting pellets at the wall every day. I'm getting through 10,000 pellets a week. Bang, bang, bang. I'm like a caged animal! But I've done a lot of reflecting during this lockdown. I've been thinking of my childhood, thinking about what a fantastic life I've had." 

His stay in jail:

It was an experience I'm glad I did. I didn't have money to pay a fine [for burglary] and my father refused to pay it for me, so I ended up in jail for three or four weeks. Jail was OK for a couple of days but then I got homesick. When I watch these crime things on TV and people get sentenced to forever and a day... I don't know how they do it..."

Sharon's battle with cancer:

I said, "I'm not doing any more shows," and she said, "Get the fuck out of here," because I was driving her nuts. But when she had her chemo it fucking knocked the shit out of her. She would be so ill; the chemo effect was worse than the cancer.

When asked if he was in charge of her recovery, he said:

...I got Robin Williams to come round to the house to cheer her up instead. He had that film Patch Adams, where he was treating terminally ill people with laughter, so I thought he could come around to make her laugh when I was on tour. She loved it. And she was very upset when he killed himself."

His relationship with Elton John:

"Every single week Elton John calls my wife. I'm not one to hang out with this one and that one but he's become a family friend.  When we did 'Ordinary Man', I said to Andrew [Watt] it reminded me of an Elton song and he said, 'Why not get him on it?' I thought, 'You can only ask.' I only wanted him to play piano on it but he sang as well. The guy's a workaholic. Last time he was at the house I asked him what he'd been doing and he said he'd just played 40 shows in 40 days! How can you do that?! I've not done that kind of work since I was 19!"

His Regrets:

"I've done some pretty outrageous things in my life. I regret cheating on my wife. I don't do it any more. I got my reality check and I'm lucky she didn't leave me. I'm not proud of that. I was pissed off with myself. But I broke her heart."

-

Ozzy talks about his first meeting with the Queen, The Osbournes series, the fact that the person occupying his childhood home rents out his bedroom and his plans on touring in the future.

Believe it or not, this is just scratching the surface. GQ did an amazing job and I agree 100% with their decision to give him The "Man Of The Year - Lifetime Achievement Award".
