Former Nirvana star and the current frontman of Foo Fighters, Dave Grohl, was recently interviewed by Mojo Magazine and revealed the impact of a master frontman, Ozzy Osbourne.
Dave stated that While defining Ozzy’s style as so dark, so evil and so loveable, he also shared the bizarre memoir about The Prince of Darkness. Dave admitted that whenever he thinks about Ozzy, he remembers him sitting on a toilet.
Here is what Dave said:
“It’s fascinating that the singer of the band that’s known for being so dark and so evil could be so loveable.
When I think of Ozzy I think of the famous photo of him on a toilet with a cigarette in his hand, his pants around his ankles, having a drink and, on his bare knees, are tattoos of smiley faces (laughs). This is the man who sings Sabbath Bloody Sabbath!”
He continued by spreading great compliments to Ozzy Osbourne:
“Ozzy’s personality and charisma shine through the darkness. His singing voice is very distinctive. His signature sound is a doubled vocal.
He sings the line once and then sings it again and that creates the effect, almost like a phase or a flange.
When he sings the line the second time they match up perfectly – not something everyone can do. He has this laser, crystal tone that can cut through the incredibly heavy music behind him.”
