Black Sabbath is on the clock! Time is ticking down on the career of this iconic British metal band.

One last album to be supported by a farewell tour that will usher Sabbath into rock & roll heaven.

When Ozzy Osbourne was asked about his plans post Sabbath, he says he will continue to write solo albums.

"I've been not doing my solo stuff for quite a while now -- I've been touring with Sabbath, so I just wanted to let everybody know I haven't stopped doing my solo stuff," Osbourne tells Billboard.  "I'm going to do one more Black Sabbath tour, one more album with Black Sabbath, and it'll take about two or three years before I release solo stuff again.  So Memoirs of a Madmanis just to say to the fans that I haven't stopped."

Ozzy didn't give a date of release for any new solo material, but did say the material will be much different than Black Sabbath's.

"Black Sabbath is slow and demonic; Tony Iommiis untouchable for that kind of stuff," he says.  "My stuff is more melodic, more structured of a song.  It's more kind of rock than doom-y music.  It's happier, kind of."

Ozzy assured Billboard that this album and tour will really be the end of Sabbath.

"We're disbanding the name and everything.  They don't want to tour anymore," he says.  "I get it.  But I love it.  I'm gonna continue my solo thing."
