"Keep away the name of our group from your list. Save the ink. Forget about us. We believe your ceremony pointless, because in your Hall of Fame get musicians who choose not students, but only a handful of critics who consider themselves the elite of show business. The ones who have never bought any albums or tickets to our concerts. So their opinion we do not care. Let's face it: Black Sabbath media have never loved, we - the people's team, and we like it the most "- Ozzy wrote.

"I could get in the studio and write something in the spirit of Black Sabbath with drummer Bill Ward, guitarist Tony Iommi and bassist Geezer Butler, with whom in the past I've worked a lot. But I will not do it. It would look hideous "- concludes Ozzie .- Why?Because me and so very sad to see how quickly the group is now releasing shitty albums, only to have to cut down a lot of money. "
