Osbourne Enlisted The Help of Guitar Gods
The Prince of Darkness is taking his new music to the next level by featuring some of the greatest guitar legends to walk this planet on his upcoming album. He’s collaborating with Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, former Black Sabbath bandmate Tony Iommi, and longtime collaborator Zakk Wylde on the follow-up to 2020’s “Ordinary Man”.
Speaking on Ozzyspeaks, hosted on his Sirius XM channel, Ozzy’s Boneyard, he revealed details on his new LP produced again by Andrew Watt.
“You just write the song and you just ask them to sing [or play] what you [give them],” Osbourne said. “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.”
Osbourne also shared that Clapton recorded a “very good” guitar solo for one of his songs but had minor issues with the lyrics.
“Eric Clapton, on this new record, one of the lyrics was about Jesus, and he wasn’t sure about that,” Osbourne explained. “But it was all right in the end… [The solo he did] is very good.”
Back in May, Osbourne said they already had “13 [or] 14 really strong songs”. The release date hasn’t been announced yet.
