Ozzy Osbourne wants to record a new solo album according to his keyboardist.
Adam Wakeman, who has played with the Black Sabbath frontman since 2004, has been speaking about the star’s plans once the heavy metal band’s farewell tour is over.
Speaking to Eonmusic, Wakeman said: “Well [Black Sabbath are] finishing [their farewell tour] on February 4th, and then we’ll see what happens with Ozzy after that.
“I mean, he wants to do another tour, he wants to do another album, but there’s going to be a period of time when he needs a rest, so yeah, hopefully we’ll be back out.”
Osbourne hasn’t released a solo album since 2010’s ‘Scream’.
The classic Black Sabbath line-up of guitarist Tony Iommi, frontman Ozzy Osbourne, bassist Geezer Butler and drummer Bill Ward reformed in 2011. However, Ward quit before the reunion tour began.
They’ve since released one new album, ’13’, in 2013 which featured Rage Against The Machine drummer Brad Wilk in Ward’s place.
Iommi overcame lymphoma in 2013 and said in March the band was no longer capable of playing long tours. He said: “I just can’t keep going out on these long tours. Don’t get me wrong, I still love gigging. It’s the travelling and the exhaustion that goes with it that’s the problem.”
