The legendar Black Sabbath singer Ozzy Osbourne revealed in an new episode of the show “Ozzy Speaks” on SiriusXM’s Ozzy’s Boneyard (Transcribed by Blabbermouth) that guitarists Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi and Zakk Wylde will play in his next album.
“On this new album, I’m working with Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi and Zakk Wylde. You just write the song and you just ask them to sing (or play) what you (give them).”
“The good thing is it’s interesting to work with somebody else. But the bad thing is if it don’t work, you can’t (just let it go) ’cause they’ll get all pissed off.”
Asked if he has ever had a musician send something back to him where he went, “I don’t like that. No. Eric Clapton, on this new record, one of the lyrics was about Jesus, and he wasn’t sure about that. But it was all right in the end… (The solo he did) is very good.”
“I’ve done 15 tracks. It’s kept me alive you know. These past two years I’ve been in a terrible fucking state between the accident [Ozzy seriously injured himself after falling at home in 2019] and then the pandemic. It’s kept me sane. I’ve needed the music. I struggle a bit, but slowly but surely we’re getting there. My only concern right now is finishing the bloody thing. We’ve got the same production time as the last time. So there’s definitely going to be some similarities. But you’ll just have to wait and see what you think.”
“I’m missing home. Right now I can’t get on a fucking plane. But as soon as I can, I’m coming home!”
