This is about a stalker who torments women in a red light district. (thanks, Ryan H. Harris - Bellevue, NE)
No More Tears was the first album Ozzy recorded while he was sober. This was a big change for him, since he had done drugs and alcohol for over 20 years. He is now a family man, and even exercises.
This was the first single from the album. Unlike previous Ozzy albums, this did not have a demonic title and cover art. Ozzy is on the cover with angel wings.
Ozzy called the subsequent tour "No More Tours," and said it would be his last. After it ended, he got bored and decided to tour some more, calling his next one the "Retirement Sucks Tour."
Future Alice in Chains bassist Mike Inez is credited as a writer for this song. Although long-time Ozzy Osbourne bassist Bob Daisley played on the song, the intro bass riff was composed by Inez, who also performed in the album's videos and promotional tours
The album was digitally remastered and re-released in 2002.
"No More Tears" once saved the life of a Sabbath-loving autistic eight-year-old boy. Joshua Robb ran into the San Bernardino Mountains of California to escape allegedly abusive parents, and he was found walking toward rescuers 24 hours later, after police blasted this song from speakers.
This song also can be heard being played in the Adam Sandler movie Little Nicky during the final battle scene where Osbourne appears.
