AC/DC, METALLICA, IRON MAIDEN, OZZY OSBOURNE, and TOOL each released similar teaser videos for the upcoming week’s reveal, showcasing the logos of the five groups in their individual clips.
Osbourne recently addressed the reports that he was retiring from touring after he revealed his decision to cancel his tour earlier this month due to a spinal injury he suffered four years ago and other health issues.
“The f**king press drive you nuts,” he said. “I mean, I looked in the magazine, ‘Ozzy‘s on his last legs.’ I’m f**king not dying… Come on, guys. Haven’t I’ve had it bad enough already? If I get okay today, if the doctor said to me today, ‘Oh, you can tour, it would take another six months to get it together, you know?”
“You’ve got no idea. You got no idea what my… I feel like a one-legged man in a butt-kicking contest,” Ozzy continued. “The only thing I’ve got that keeps me going is making records. But I can’t do that forever. I gotta get out there… [I’m] still in constant pain. I do to the best I can to stay away from the pain medication, but there are times when I go, ‘You know, I’ve gotta take something.’ I mean, last week I couldn’t… I’ve been sleeping great, and all of a sudden for two back-to-back nights. I never slept a wink. If you’re gonna torture me, just keep me awake for a couple of days. I’ll tell you whatever the f**k you want me to say.”
