Wylde now reveals in an interview with The Cleveland Scene that he was actually Osbourne's last choice as a guitarist for the tour, but it doesn't really bother him.

"Ozzy said, 'Gus G. is doing the Firewind thing, and Jake [E. Lee] is doing his thing. Brad Gillis is doing Night Ranger. Bernie Torme is still doing the blues thing. You're the last option. Do you want to do it?'

"I said, 'Yes.' My buddies go, 'Doesn't it bother you that you're the last option?'. I said, 'No. At least, I'm an option.'

"We did rehearsals, and Ozzy said to me like he said to me when I was 19 years old, 'Just play with your heart and make me a ham sandwich and go light on the mustard.' I made him a ham sandwich and went light on the mustard and here we are."

Ozzy most recently announced a European leg of his No More Tours 2 with Judas Priest. You can get those dates here, and get confused about whether or not Ozzy will ever do a new solo album here.
