In a recent interview with Jimmy Kay from The Metal Voice, Megadeth bassist David Ellefson has revealed the Ozzy Osbourne albums that changed his life.
When asked about his upcoming induction into the Hall of Heavy Metal History January 23 2019 in Anaheim California, Ellefson responded:
“Last year I inducted Nick Menza into the Hall, it was great because his family was there and it was a special privilege and honour especially since Nick is no longer with us.
So this year when the Hall’s CEO Pat Guesaldo contacted me for the induction, I thought it was great and super cool. The Hall does a great thing, they are honouring and inducting a lot of cool artists.”
On Ozzy albums, he said:
“They are inducting the Ozzy Osbourne Blizzard of Oz artists, drummer Lee Kerslake and bassist Bob Daisley, also my friend Mike Portnoy ex Dream Theater and so many more great musicians.
I am especially looking forward to meeting Lee Kerslake (who recently told The Metal Voice he had 8 months to live due to cancer) who did the drumming on Ozzy’s first two albums, Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman, because those two albums changed my Life. Those two albums were very influential to me as a teenage musician.”
