Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi said in an interview with The List that he doesn't know what Ozzy Osbourne meant when he said that he "didn't have a great time" on Sabbath's final tour.

Ozzy recently told the Philadelphia Inquirer that his last tour with Sabbath -- the band's farewell trek which ended in February 2017 -- was not a pleasant experience for him. He explained, "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 f**k else can I be?"

Asked for a response to Ozzy's comments, Iommi said, "I saw that, but I don't know what he meant. I had a great time on the last tour playing with the guys, and Ozzy never mentioned anything to me. He seemed to enjoy it and we had a laugh, so I don't know. So I think possibly that quote was taken out of context."

Iommi also confirmed that he is still involved in music, even though it's been nearly two years since Sabbath played its last concert. He noted, "I couldn't stop playing, but the thing is now I can do it in my own time . . . I still love being on stage, I love playing and I love seeing the fans."

Iommi told us not long ago that determination has always been the key to his success and longevity: "I've always been the same. I always have to try to get over that barrier, whatever it may be, and do it, you know. And that's continued in what I do with the music. Because I'm determined to do it, I'm determined to carry on. And it's been with everything like that."
