They say that ‘time waits for no one,’ and Ozzy Osbourne is no different. Following his announcement earlier this year that he’ll be heading out on his “No More Tours 2″ tour, it seems that even if Ozzy fancied taking the driver’s seat during the trek, that will no longer be an option.
According to his son Jack, ‘the Prince of Darkness’ has finally decided that it’s time to hand over his keys following a recent fender bender.
Jack explained: “He had a little bumper kiss on the freeway with someone and he was like ‘You know, I don’t want to drive anymore.’ He was already driving less and less. I think he is of that mindset he’d rather not have the responsibility,” explained Jack. “Think about it – Ozzy bumps someone and it is like next thing you know we are going to sue for a billion – because people are silly. His thing was more like ‘I don’t want to be liable, that’s it.'”
In typical Ozzy fashion, he has previously explained about his poor run of luck behind the steering wheel, saying: “I took so many fucking driving tests because I was so out of it. The time I fell asleep, when I woke up there was a note on the seat saying, ‘You have failed.’” Classic Ozzy.
When you add the fact that Ozzy also sustained major injuries whilst riding a quad bike back in 2003, you have to say, ‘it’s probably time.’
Next month see’s Osbourne returning to the road for the start of the “No More Tour 2” trek. And the singer has stated that this will be his last world tour, but he would be open to playing the occasional show after the tour has ended.
