In his recent interview with Rolling Stone, musician Ozzy Osbourne shared details about his upcoming documentary "Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne."

GOING FOR A SOLO CAREER

Osbourne is still the same creative and talented performer he was decades ago, with a few song ideas in mind. However, he plans to focus on his solo career rather than play with the Black Sabbath. 

"I don't have the slightest interest in [doing another gig]," he said, adding that his bandmate, Tony Iommi, who wanted to reunite the band, was probably "bored" in recent times.

Despite his opposing thoughts to a reunion, Osbourne still sees his bandmates like family. "Those guys are my brothers," he said of them. "It's more than a friendship with me and them guys; it's a family."
