BLACK SABBATH's Tony Iommi & Ozzy Osbourne Talking Every Day During Quarantine

Iommi's neighbors are also watching out for him.

Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi is doing basically what the rest of us are doing in social isolation – watching TV and playing guitar. Iommi tells the Birmingham Mail that his neighbors are watching out for him as well, and that he's been in touch with Ozzy Osbourne every day throughout these strange times.

Iommi also touches on his auctioning of some Black Sabbath albums and a signed guitar to benefit hospitals.

"I was spending self-isolation clearing the studio and hit on the idea of an auction. I've washed the car, cleaned the garage out, done all those little jobs that you realize needed doing, just like everyone else.

"[My wife] Maria and I have been binge-watching TV, too – we've been doing 'Ozark' and 'Boardwalk Empire' – and I've been playing guitar. It's a bit like being on tour, without getting out to play. You're stuck in the room each night.

"Neighbors have dropped a note through the door, asking if I want any shopping. They're looking out for the poor old sod!

"I think this has brought us all closer. I'm even in touch with Ozzy [Osbourne] every day as he gets over his own health problems in LA."

Iommi recently said he's got piles of riffs laying around for a new solo album, but is waiting until he can "do it properly."
