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.
This is really too bad and thoughts and prayers go out to Ozzy and also to Sharon and the rest of the Osbourne family. Sharon says that Ozzy is about to undergo a serious surgery that could determine the rest of his life. She won’t go into details and keeping everything tight-lipped for now.
Hopefully the surgery is not as serious as she says it is and he’ll be okay after. How serious is it? Could this mean that it could be the end of Ozzy’s music career for good? Could be.
Ozzy always had struggles and gone through many obstacles. He just continues to fight it all and tries his best to stay alive for his family and music. Even though he had struggles and all kinds of health problems, he continues to make music and tries to perform live ’cause he loves it so much, ya know? Even though he can’t perform live anymore, he still could make music in the studio ’cause he just finished a new solo album that he’s about to release real soon and you can betcha I’m gonna buy it.
I’ve always been a huge Ozzy fan. He’s always been an important influence and inspiration in my musical life. I’ve listened to Black Sabbath and his solo career for years and still do. Ozzy’s an icon and legend in the music business. He started it all pretty much… the “heavy metal” genre.
Yeah, he did the Osbournes TV show but even Ozzy admitted that show hurt his career a little bit but he went right back to the music after that.
I love Ozzy as a music artist and singer, always did. I’m still trying to collect all Black Sabbath albums he did and trying to get more of his solo albums too. Of course, the stuff he did with Randy Rhoads is best.
So I just bought the Deluxe Versions of the Black Sabbath albums: “Heaven and Hell” and “Mob Rules” which both of those albums had Ronnie James Dio as a singer. Tony Iommi released those albums as a Deluxe Edition just not too long ago. There are no unreleased tracks on the Deluxe Versions, just a bunch of live stuff after the studio albums gets done playing.
While Black Sabbath were active, all they did was ram the Ozzy era down our throats constantly. They never gave the other singers any acknowledgement until now. Tony releases “Heaven and Hell” and “Mob Rules” as a way to remind Black Sabbath fans that Ozzy wasn’t the only singer in the band.
Yeah, Sabbath should celebrate the Ozzy era of Sabbath… now that the band is no more officially… it’s time to celebrate the other eras. It’s time to get the whole career of Black Sabbath out there. I’ve read somewhere that Tony Iommi is planning release a box set of the Tony Martin era of Sabbath real soon which is gonna be real cool. I believe there were two other singers of Sabbath which only lasted for an album or two: Ian Gillan and Glen Hughes.
I never heard the “Heaven and Hell” and “Mob Rules” studio albums before and I just gave them both a listen this week. Both albums are amazing. It’s Ronnie James Dio, I’m just starting to get into his music more too ’cause he’s one of the greatest rock singers of all time. The live stuff on those deluxe albums are really cool too so I’m glad I bought these two albums.
I’d say it’s about time that Tony Iommi is trying to get the other singers of Sabbath known again… Ozzy wasn’t the only singer of that band, remember that. I’ve loved Black Sabbath for a long long time, ever since I was young and still listen to that band now. Tony Iommi has always been one of my favorite guitarists and he is the riff master for sure. He definitely knows how to write riffs with “power” and knows how to make them sound musical… riffs that never leave your head. Tony was the master at that… while Tony is mostly well known as a riff master and rhythm guitarist, another reminder that Tony is also a lead guitarist and he played some mind blowing solos in Sabbath songs. Iommi has always been one of my top 10 guitarists. He’s a genius for sure.
Since Sabbath will never make a new studio album ever again, Tony is still trying to find ways to keep fans happy by re-releasing the old albums into Deluxe editions which is a good idea, in my opinion. That’s smart band marketing.
Hate to be the one to say it but it looks like Ozzy’s music career is gonna be done for good. I admire the guy for trying to get back out there ’cause he loves performing but I think he should hang it up for good and looks like he’s gonna have to.
His Parkinson’s Disease is getting so bad that he’s unable to perform? Yeah, his shaking is probably getting a lot worse which sounds like.
Once again, thoughts and prayers go out to the Ozzman. I’ve always been a fan of his through Black Sabbath and his solo career. He is a talented man and whether you like it or not, he is an icon and legend.
Just heard the sad news today that Ozzy Osbourne, the iconic metal singer revealed the news exclusively on Good Morning America with Robin Roberts that the singer was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. Ozzy revealed the news himself on the show.
Pretty sad about this ’cause Ozzy is one of the greatest metal singers of all time. I mean, the man was the one who helped start the metal genre… he helped invent the genre pretty much. I’ve been an Ozzy fan for years and always respected him. I heard everything he did with Black Sabbath and his solo career. I am trying to collect Sabbath and Ozzy solo albums for my Itunes, though.
Was Ozzy’s Parkinson’s diagnosis because of all the drugs and alcohol he put in his body over the years in his life? Probably. Years of alcohol and drugs can do something to ya later in life. I have noticed that Ozzy isn’t looking well nowadays.
Ozzy is a fighter, though. I respect the man even more. Even though Ozzy’s health is declining rapidly, he’s trying to stay alive for his family and for his music. Ozzy’s health is declining but he’s still doing the music thing. He can’t give that up no matter what ’cause he loves it. Ozzy’s got a new solo album coming out this year and I’m probably gonna get it. I’m loving the new songs so far.
Now that Ozzy has Parkinson’s, I wonder if Michael J. Fox gonna reach out to Ozzy about it? Michael probably already heard about it by now and I wonder if those two will one day team up to start doing stuff together for the Michael J. Fox Foundation. I hope they get together and they probably will… would be pretty cool.
Ozzy’s shaking may not be so bad right now but it’s probably gonna get worse in the future and he may have to get forced to retire from music completely pretty soon.
Prayers go out to him and his family. This really sucks and Parkinson’s a pretty serious disease. It’s no joke.
Ozzy Osbourne maybe a controversial figure in music… love him or hate him all you want to, Ozzy is the greatest metal singer of all time. I mean he’s the pioneer of metal… he started it all. He created some pretty great songs with Black Sabbath and his solo career. As for the best eras in Ozzy’s solo career, I would say the Randy Rhoads era and the Zakk Wylde eras were the best. Jake E. Lee was pretty cool too, though.
Complications from the “flu” is pretty serious and you could get death from that. Hopefully Ozzy survives this ’cause if we lose him this year then that wold suck even more. Ozzy’s a musical genius and he’s a legend.
I hope Ozzy gets well ’cause he hasn’t been good lately.
Interesting. Black Sabbath is officially done and over with. They released one final studio album in 2012 and they just completed a final tour titled, “The End”. Why did Sabbath suddenly decided to break up? Maybe it was because Ozzy didn’t enjoy being in the band anymore?
Ozzy says that he kept getting bad vibes from Tony and Geezer. I think what Ozzy was trying to say is that Tony and Geezer saw him as a singer, Ozzy saw himself as more than that. Tony and Geezer didn’t appreciate Ozzy being Ozzy meaning being part of the celebrity pop culture. Ya know, Ozzy turned himself into a TV star like with “The Osbournes” and he kept doing other projects with the Osbournes. Ozzy is also an author and has books out too. He’s also currently doing a TV show with his son Jack on the History Channel. So Tony and Geezer just sees Ozzy as a rock singer and not seeing him as celebrity Ozzy is that what Ozzy is mad about???
I love Ozzy Osbourne but I’m not afraid to admit that he is a bit of an egomaniac and narcissist and this should be good enough to prove that. I always saw that Ozzy sold himself out when he did “The Osbournes” TV show. He’s supposed to be a rock singer and metal guy. Instead, he turned himself into a TV star and Hollywood celebrity. That’s how people see Ozzy now. They don’t see him as a rock singer anymore.
Tony and Geezer don’t keep up with the times… they don’t get themselves into this reality TV garbage. They see themselves as musicians, not celebrities. It seems to me that Tony and Geezer don’t appreciate Ozzy doing all that celebrity stuff… trying to be a celebrity and not a musician. I can see where Tony and Geezer are coming from so I’m on their side for sure.
I believe Ozzy destroyed his rock star image when he did the Osbournes which to me was pretty sad and disappointing. Black Sabbath went out on a positive note and it was pretty low of him to talk negative stuff about Tony and Geezer but oh well, what do ya know? It’s the music industry… there’s gonna be huge egos all over.
Fans will always see Ozzy as a celebrity and not a rock singer. Ozzy did that to himself. He needs to get over himself already!
Ozzy and Geezer both may have ruled out another Black Sabbath album and claims there won’t be another Sabbath album but Tony Iommi has a different opinion on that matter. Tony says he wants to keep going ’cause he says he’s written tons of riffs that would be good enough for another Sabbath album; however, Geezer and Ozzy doesn’t seem so keen on recording another Sabbath album.
Keep in mind that Tony, Ozzy and Geezer weren’t always the lineup for Sabbath ’cause Sabbath went through too many lineup changes over the years so what’s stopping Tony for changing the lineup of the band again? He can if he wants to. Sabbath is Tony’s baby. Tony has full control and ownership of the band so he does what he wants to do.
I have always been a pretty big fan of Ozzy Osbourne, the legendary singer. Have been an admirer and fan for years. I even liked his TV show, “The Osbournes” when it aired on MTV a while back. Ozzy is a talented and interesting man even if you can’t understand what he’s saying most of the time. A lot of people would make assumptions that he’s into Satan worship and all of this dark stuff but he’s not like that at all. Once you get to know the guy a little better, you’ll notice right away that he just a regular guy and a family man. You’ll notice he’s not that intimidating at all. I’ve read and seen too many interviews with Ozzy over the years and even read his rock memoir, “I Am Ozzy”. So yes, I think you can safely say that I’m a pretty big Ozzy fanatic.
I finally listened to all of Ozzy’s work. I listened to all 9 albums he did with Black Sabbath and I listened to all 11 solo albums he did. I enjoyed everything, of course but what are my favorite albums he did?
Well my favorite Sabbath albums he did would have to be: (self titled debut), Paranoid, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, Vol. 4 and their latest album, “13”.
As for Ozzy’s solo albums: I’m gonna say the three Randy Rhoads albums for sure “Blizzard of Ozz”, “Diary of a Madman” and “Bark at the Moon” are classic albums indeed. Plus the Ozzy & Randy live album, “Tribute” is golden as well. I do like a few other Ozzy solo albums but nothing will ever top the Rhoads era. As for other eras of Ozzy’s solo career… I’m gonna have to pick: “No More Tears”, “Ozzmosis” and “Black Rain” being the best. His latest album, “Scream” was just okay.
Ozzy’s a freakin’ legend, though.
When will Ozzy ever release a new solo album? I think he will soon once he finishes the new tour with Sabbath then he’ll move on to his solo career again, I’m sure. I would one day like to meet the guy in person… would be cool.
Ozzy just put out an official statement on his facebook saying that, he is not divorcing Sharon. Apparently, Ozzy has picked up alcohol and drugs again…
From Ozzy’s facebook page:
For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs. I was in a very dark place and was an asshole to the people I love most, my family. However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober.
Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing. I’m just trying to be a better person.
I would like to apologize to Sharon, my family, my friends and my band mates for my insane behavior during this period………and my fans.
Isn’t it pretty ironic that Black Sabbath fired Ozzy for being a drunk and drug addict years ago, now he’s back with them again? Maybe Ozzy and Sharon are living in separate homes just for the safety of his family. The guy is an asshole, admittedly, and he has a short temper. Always had.
