"I'm not retiring," Ozzy says in the chat, which is primarily about him playing the first-ever Download Festival Japan. "I'm just not doing world tours anymore. [In the past, I would] leave my house [in] January and come back at the end of the year. It should be, I'm slowing it down. But I can never say when I'm going to check out. I can never tell."

Ozzy's touring schedule is set to resume on March 9 in Australia and he will, of course, be headlining Japan's first Download in Makuhari Mese, Chiba on March 21.
