Ozzy Osbourne: People don’t buy albums any more

OHMYGOSSIP — Ozzy Osbourne feels disenchanted with the current state of the music industry.
The 71-year-old rock star – who rose to prominence during the 70s as the lead vocalist of Black Sabbath – has expressed frustration at the changing landscape of the music business.
He said: “Because of Spotify, nobody buys f***ing records any more.”
Ozzy feels that albums are quickly forgotten these days, rather than being cherished as they once were.
The rock icon told The Sun newspaper: “People will soon forget about taking an album home, reading the sleeve and experiencing an album’s worth of music.
“‘Sgt Pepper’s was a great record. The Beatles are my favourites, you know. When I met Paul McCartney, it was the highlight of my life.
“I was so surprised at how nice he was and I also met Ringo … what a great bloke. The thing about The Beatles was they always had the best melodies. All I’ve tried to do in my career is put a melody to a dark riff.”
Meanwhile, Ozzy previously insisted rock music can’t die while he’s still alive.
The singer rubbished suggestions that the genre is already dead – but admitted to being surprised by some of the recent changes in the music industry.
Ozzy – whose new album is called ‘Ordinary Man’ – said: “I’m still alive. [But] I never thought in my lifetime I’d see the demise of records.
“I never use the computer. It’s totally changed. A lot of people steal music now, so a lot of people can’t afford to do it anymore.”
