I really dig the new Ozzy tune a lot that just dropped this week. On the song, he collaborates with Jeff Beck on guitar. It’s definitely Jeff Beck ’cause when you hear Jeff play, you know it’s him. Jeff’s got his own style in guitar playing and he plays like no one else.
“Patient Number 9” is actually a pretty great song, digging it a lot and I’m not that crazy about Ozzy’s newer music but I’m actually excited for his new one. This song here is mostly a ballad but it’s got some rock riffs in it too.
Ozzy’s upcoming new album is an all star kind of album where he collaborates with all kinds of guitar greats including Eric Clapton which is interesting really. Some of you are like, huh? Eric Clapton? Well Ozzy collaborating with artists out of the norm is nothing new, he just works with whoever he wants.
What I’m most excited about with his new album is that he reunites with two of his guitarists from his past on the album: Tony Iommi and Zakk and I can’t wait to hear those songs.
I’m feeling that Ozzy’s next album will be totally different. He’s always re-inventing himself but I’m sure his next album will include heavy rockers and headbanging songs like always.
I respect Ozzy even more now ’cause despite his health problems, he continues to make music through it all. Nothing is stopping him. He just loves making music. I don’t think it’s about the money for him at all.
Can’t wait for the new album. I’m getting it for sure. Probably gonna get it on both vinyl and digital.
