Ozzy Osbourne Says He Is Proud Of Tony Iommi

In his recent Instagram post, Ozzy Osbourne conveyed that he was proud of his former Black Sabbath bandmate Tony Iommi indicating his appearance at Commonwealth Games.

Tony Iommi dismissed Ozzy Osbourne from Black Sabbath in 1979 because of his ongoing struggle with alcohol and substance consumption. As he started to become distant from the recordings due to his problems, it was the only solution to fire him, even if it was a hard decision to make for Iommi. However, the Prince of Darkness returned to the band, and their friendship continued after the group’s disbandment in 2017.

Previously, Iommi revealed that Osbourne was the only bandmate he talked to the most regularly after the split. The rocker also mentioned that they still supported each other in their careers. Iommi announced he created and played the title track ‘Degradation Rules’ for Osbourne’s most recent album and expressed his support for his fellow musician. The guitarist informed the audience that he was on the list of musicians who would perform for the opening of the 2022 Commonwealth Games, an international multi-sport event done every four years.

Recently, Osbourne shared an Instagram post and praised his fellow musician Iommi by sharing his photo. He expressed how proud he was to see his friend taking the stage at the Commonwealth Games opening in their hometown Birmingham, England, on July 28, 2022.

Ozzy Osbourne wrote on his IG post:

“Tony Iommi, I was proud to see you tonight at the opening of the Commonwealth Games in our hometown of Birmingham.”
