Ozzy Osbourne says he wants to record at least two more albums before he retires from music.

In an interview with USA Today, Osbourne, who has just been unveiled as a new character in the next instalment of Guitar Hero, said modern technology was helping sustain his recording career.

“I am recording another album soon. I've got a Pro Tools machine downstairs in my house now, which I record from home now. I can't turn the fucking thing on.. It's like the brain of the house,” he said.

“But when you have somebody who knows what they are doing, it's so easy to make records now, it's not even funny.”

Osbourne added, however, that he felt production software like Pro Tools was “diminishing” the art of making records.

“It's taking the passion out of it. But I will try to give it as much real me as I can. There's so many tricks I can use,” he said.

“I want to make two albums. Make one and go out on that one, and make another one and go out on that. Time is very valuable to me now. I'm 60 this December.

"It does not seem 10 years since I was 50. It really doesn't. My mission now is to do as much as I can.”
