Rocker OZZY OSBOURNE is struggling to bring the tale of Rasputin to Broadway insisting it’s much easier to make hit albums.

The BLACK SABBATH rocker is making a big-budget musical based on the 19th century Russian monk’s life, but concedes it’s harder than he expected – and has even turned to pop pal Sir ELTON JOHN for advice.

He says, “It’s kind of been nearly done. The thing about it is, I’m singing some of the parts, and it sounds OK, but then, when it does get picked up, it’s not as easy as making records.

“It’s a big thing, because you’ve got to get choreography to put what you’ve written into a stage thing and insert the songs for this thing.”
