Ozzy Osbourne Explains Muddled Ringo Starr Grammys Intro: "I Completely F***ed It Up!"

Ozzy Osbourne has reflected upon one of the more bemusing incidents of last night's Grammy Awards. The 65 year-old rock star was tasked with introducing former Beatle Ringo Starr at the glitzy music event in Los Angeles. The Grammys organisers had made it simple for the Black Sabbath frontman: all he had to do was stand on stage with his bandmates and read from a teleprompter.

Ozzy, TONY IOMMI and Geezer Butler headed to the stage for the introduction and the singer began to read the script. However, Ozzy soon lost pace and jumbled up his words to form an incoherent stream of babble, according to Fox News. Tony and Geezer burst into laughter at their band chum's ineptness but Twitter reactions soon took the shape of a collective eye-roll as exasperated Grammys viewers questioned the rocker's sobriety.

Black Sabbath Score Their First Ever US Number One Album And Another Could Be On Its Way


Black Sabbath Ozzy Osbourne TONY IOMMI

Black Sabbath are back, well and truly too, with the Gods of metal scoring their first ever number one album on the US Billboard Chart, with their comeback album 13 shooting to the top of the charts after nearly 50 years of waiting. The album ended a forty plus year wait for band to return to the top of the UK Album charts when it took the top spot last week, but in scoring their first US number one the band have performed quite a remarkable feat.

Upon hearing the news, the active members of the group each issued a statement exclaiming their shock at the success of the album, with guitarist TONY IOMMI stating, "The news is absolutely amazing--we couldn't have imagined this would happen. We have the greatest fans," whilst bassist Geezer Butler had this to say; "I'm absolutely stunned. Thank you all world wide for being the best, and most patient, fans ever."

Frontman Ozzy Osbourne was equally as overwhelmed with the success saying; "There have been so many amazing highlights in our long career. To finally have our first #1 album in the U.S. is another incredible milestone for Black Sabbath. Thank you to all of our fans for their support and loyalty."

Could ‘13’ Be Black Sabbath's First Number One Album In Over 40 Years?


Black Sabbath Ozzy Osbourne TONY IOMMI Liam Gallagher Rick Rubin Rage Against The Machine

Black Sabbath are back and it looks like they're back with a bang too, with the metal overlords looking set to score their first number one on the album chart in 43 years. 13 was released at the beginning of this week and it has been slowly creeping up the charts, and it could have a good chance of reaching the coveted spot by the end of the week.The album - the first to feature the (mostly) original lineup of Ozzy Osbourne, TONY IOMMI and Geezer Butler (drummer Burt Ward was forced to sit out the recording process because of health reasons) in 35-years - currently sits at the top of the mid-week charts, however it cannot officially claim to be an official number one until the end of the week. With no real threat in the charts to challenge it for the top spot - bar Liam Gallagher’s Beady Eye perhaps - so it looks like the band may be on to recreate the feat their 1970 album Paranoid.

The album was produced by acclaimed Def Jam co-founder Rick Rubin and features Rage Against The Machine’s Brad Wilkes sitting in for Ward, and critics are hailing the album as a return to the doom-laded guitar riffs of the band's classic albums from the 70's. Frontman Osbourne declared his surprise at the album's success earlier today, saying “I can’t believe Black Sabbath may have its first number one album in 43 years.”

The band will continue their world tour in support of the album over the rest of the year, having already played in New Zealand, Australia and parts of Asia. The tour reaches London's O2 Arena in December and will arrive at Houston's Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavillion on July 25.

Black Sabbath Release New Single 'God Is Dead?' From Album, '13' [Video]


Black Sabbath Rick Rubin Ozzy Osbourne TONY IOMMI

Showing the blackest of their hearts - now presumably kept pulsing with pacemakers - Black Sabbath have released first single from  new album 13 : 'God Is Dead?' with an accompanying video that depicts swirling green galaxies, blood bathed streets and eerily fuzzy TV screens.

At first listen, Black Sabbath's brand new single 'God Is Dead?' has all the tell-tale signs of Rick Rubin's slick production; a man whose capable hands are famed for reinvigorating scores of rock bands, such as ZZ Top.

The track settles into clonging, downbeat death-knell guitars and decidedly evil lyrics from Ozzy, with some "novel" rhyming ("out of the gloom I rise up from my tomb into impending doom"), which forms the first 6 minutes of their 9 minute epic, before picking up pace and volume, eventually breaking out climatically into pure metal heaven as Ozzy cries out "God Is Dead!" over Geezer's rolling drumbeat thumps and a classic heavy riffage that will bring tears of joy to fans.
