Ozzy Osbourne’s most recent album, Patient Number 9, bagged two Grammy Awards at the 2023 ceremony, which was held last February 5 in Los Angeles.
The album won the Best Rock Album award, beating out albums by The Black Keys, Elvis Costello & The Imposters, Idles, Machine Gun Kelly, and Spoon. The rocker also won the Best Metal Performance award for the song “Degradation Rules,” which featured guitarist Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath.
Osbourne’s representatives, bassist Robert Trujillo and producer/guitarist Andrew Watt accepted the 2023 prizes on his behalf.
On the album, the Prince of Darkness collaborated with Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Watt, Trujillo, Zakk Wylde, and guests Iommi, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Duff McKagan of Guns N’ Roses, Mike McCready of Pearl Jam, Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters, and Chris Chaney of Jane’s Addiction.
Patient Number 9 not only became the Prince of Darkness’ highest-charting solo album in his home country, but it also topped the Official Vinyl Albums Chart and made it to the Top 10 chart entries in both the US and the UK.
Meanwhile, a few weeks ago, Osbourne announced that he has retired from touring due to his ongoing health issues, but the 74-year-old rocker hasn’t completely ruled out performing and making new music in the future.
