Ozzy Osbourne told Revolver TV in a brief interview backstage at the first annual Epiphone Revolver Golden Gods Awards in Los Angeles that Ozzfest will be back in a big way next year after taking 2009 off. Ozzy also confirmed that he recently made a guest appearance on the upcoming solo album from Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash, as he explained to Revolver TV reporter Full Metal Jackie: "Unfortunately this year we're not doing an Ozzfest, but next year we're gonna do a major one because I decided to take some time off. I'm currently recording a new album, I'm halfway through, and I've been doing some work with Slash, collaborating for his solo album."
Ozzy was given a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Golden Gods, which were held on April 7th in downtown L.A.
The singer has been rumored to make an appearance on Slash's solo album, which will feature different vocalists on each song.
Ozzy hopes to release his latest studio effort sometime before the end of 2009.
Ozzfest was downgraded to a one-day "destination festival" in Dallas, Texas last summer after more than a decade as a traveling metal and hard rock package.
