Earlier this year, the four original members of Black Sabbath ñ Ozzy Osbourne Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward ñ got together in an effort to write some new material, possibly for another Sabbath album. While the legendary rockers did come up with at least one new song called "Scary Dreams," which was performed during last years Ozzfest dates, Osbourne has revealed that more new music from the band is unlikely. However, the blood sucking frontman did say that this yearís Ozzfest did help to smooth over some of the previous issues that have worn on the group.

"We all sat down and said, 'It's gotta be the same way as it was before,' but it wasn't, you know? I'm not the same anymore, neither are they, you know? I mean, when we started writing, it wasn't the same vibe," he explains. "I'm used to being a bandleader--I mean, I'm used to having a solo career rather than being a singer with a band. Since I left Black Sabbath, I've never had a band like Black Sabbath, where everyone was equal--it was my solo project, and I had outside help to do writing, so I had the last say on it all, you know?"
