Though the message was presumably meant for wife Sharon or another member of the Osbourne clan, Ozzy ended up sending it to Robert Plant, who replied saying: “You lost the cat?”
Watch Ozzy discuss his technological ineptitude, and the time he accidentally texted Robert Plant, on The Conan O’Brien Show below.
Osbourne’s keyboardist said in August that the frontman is keen to record a new solo album, his first since 2010’s ‘Scream’, now that Black Sabbath’s farewell tour has come to an end.
The classic Black Sabbath line-up of guitarist Tony Iommi, frontman Osbourne, bassist Geezer Butler and drummer Bill Ward reformed in 2011. However, Ward quit before the reunion tour began.
They’ve since released one new album, ’13’, in 2013 which featured Rage Against The Machine drummer Brad Wilk in Ward’s place.
Iommi overcame lymphoma in 2013 and explained in March that he is no longer capable of touring extensively. He said: “I just can’t keep going out on these long tours. Don’t get me wrong, I still love gigging. It’s the travelling and the exhaustion that goes with it that’s the problem.”
