Black Sabbath's frontman Ozzy Osbourne says he doesn't want to retire from the heavy metal group.

The 67-year-old musician said he is willing to do more gigs beyond the 80 shows they have inked in for their 'The End Tour', reported Female First.

"It's not me that wants to retire; it's Black Sabbath. I'll be continuing my own musical thing."

"We're doing 80 shows. It's good enough. I wouldn't mind extending the tour for another few gigs. There's a lot of people who won't get to see us, but I don't think it's going to happen."

However, he has no plans to stop making music and performing live because it is the "greatest love affair" of his life.

My wife (and manager Sharon Osbourne) is good at telling me partial information, y'know, but I know I'm not hanging 'em up for awhile.

"Being Ozzy Osbourne solo again is not a job, it's a passion. It's a love. It's the biggest, greatest love affair of my life," he said.
