Osbourne will never retire

Ozzy Osbourne has vowed to continue working until the day he dies - because retirement would bore him.

The 60-year-old rocker has enjoyed a long career in the music business since forming Black Sabbath in the 1960s.

And Osbourne won't consider giving up singing anytime soon, because he is terrified he will end up sitting at home, doing nothing.

He says: "I tried retirement. One thing I learnt is you've got to have something to retire to. You sit at home thinking, 'I'm retired.'

"I suddenly thought one day day that the time when you're finally retired is when they nail the f**king lid over your bones in the ground. That's retirement!"
