Birmingham Mail has issued the following report from Andy Coleman:

OZZY OSBOURNE was amongst friends and family when he performed at Birmingham NIA but he confesses he still gets nervous before the show.

"I still get stage fright," he admits. "I still worry and get into a panic but that's just who I am. People are surprised that after all these years I still get stage fright but I think it's because I still care about my performance."

And Ozzy had extra cause for celebration when he became the first celebrity on Birmingham's Walk Of Stars.

"I've got a star on Hollywood Boulevard and now I'm getting one in my home town - fantastic!" he enthuses.

He adds that the other members of BLACK SABBATH - Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward - should also be honoured with stars on the Walk so is there a possibility the band will get back together on stage with Ozzy?

"They're touring as HEAVEN AND HELL at the moment with Ronnie James Dio but I never say never," says Aston-born Ozzy.

"I'd be completely nuts not to put out another Black Sabbath album. The problem is, we could go into the studio now and make an album but it would have to be better than anything we'd done before. But if I ever retire I'd love to end my career performing with the band I first played with."

"I'd be completely nuts not to put out another Black Sabbath album"

If that's the case, then he's been completely nuts since the Live Aid reunion in 1985.

Since the official reunion in 1997: Geezer's great concepts and lyrics have gone into his solo albums. Iommi's unbeatable riffage, stylings and solos have gone into solo albums or the Dio Years extra tracks. IMHO, these elements were each much stronger than the ones contributed to the Ozzy solo albums over that time.

I'm not satisfied just to have Ozzy on the mic anymore. I want the entire package. Iommi and Geezer have written most of the best songs in metal history. I would prefer that THEY are the ones writing songs with Ozzy instead of some producer, keyboardist, hired hand, or even Zakk. (No offence to Zakk, of course, but I will take the songs on Fused, Master of Reality, Mob Rules, Born Again, Dehumaniser, Heaven and Hell, Vol 4 or Sabotage over anything that BLS has done.)

If we get the whole Sabbath together, there's no way they can produce a dud. Bring on the new Sabbath album!!
