Ozzy Osbourne "didn't have a great time" on the final Black Sabbath tour.

The 69-year-old rocker took to the stage with the 'Paranoid' hitmakers for the final time last year, and has now said he didn't enjoy himself of the legendary group's last shows, because he was so used to being a solo artist.

He said: "I didn't have a great time. I spent nine or 10 years in Sabbath, but I'd been away from them for over 30 years. With them, I'm just a singer. With me, I get to do what I want to do. I was getting bad vibes from them for being Ozzy. I don't know, what the fuck else can I be?"

The 'Crazy Train' musician is currently on his 'No More Tours' tour as a soloist, but says that despite the tour's name, he isn't retiring altogether, and is merely putting an end to his constant travelling around the world.

Speaking to the Philadelphia Inquirer, he added: "What I'm stopping is doing what I'm doing now, going around the world all the time. I wish people would understand I'm not retiring. Is it my bad English accent? It's called the 'No More Tours' tour. It doesn't say 'No more tours ever.'"

Meanwhile, the 'Mr. Crowley' rocker previously insisted he won't be retiring any time soon, as he plans to keep making music and starring in TV shows with his family - such as 'Ozzy and Jack's World Detour' with his son Jack Osbourne - until he's dead.

He said: "[My career will end when] a pine lid is being nailed to my box!

"I can't say it's a job. I don't have to get up and do something I don't particularly like and work for someone I don't particularly care for just to get a wage packet.

"I work for a couple of hours a night, travel a bit. I have a choice whether to stop or not and I don't want to."
