“I’ve never felt comfortable about that title that they put on me – ‘metal’,” Ozzy said. “Because Ozzy Osbourne plays heavy, but the bands that are (considered metal) are really heavy, and we’re all put in the same category," he recently told Spin Magazine

“When you get pigeonholed with a certain (genre), it can be very difficult to do something a bit lighter or an acoustic track or whatever you want to do. Back in the day, it was always just rock music. It’s still just rock music.”

Paul Stanley KISS frontman revealed in an interview last summer,“I will tell you this: for casting to be accurate in terms of age, we are looking at actors in their early 20s. Honestly, I don’t know a whole lot of actors in their early 20s. ... 

You’re talking about another generation of actors. And I’m the first to say I’m not up on a lot of them. But as the casting process goes on, I’ll certainly be there and watching. It’ll be interesting to see how someone else — be it the casting people or the director — how they view who I am and who they see doing that. I think I’ll learn a lot about their perception of me by who they cast.”
