The Prince of Darkness, Ozzy Osbourne made a special collaboration with Elton John for a new song called ‘Ordinary Man’ which was released a week ago. The song also featuring Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith.
You can listen to that song below. On the other hand, Sharon Osbourne spoke in a recent episode of The Talk Show and revealed what she really thinks about the collaboration between her husband and Elton John.
Sharon stated that the song is the story of Ozzy’s life, and she can’t listen to ‘Ordinary Man’ because it makes her cry.
Here’s the entire statement:
“It’s the story of Ozzy’s life. And the picture [on the single cover of Ozzy walking alone in a field] was taken by [son] Jack two years ago when they were on the road doing their TV show [Ozzy & Jack’s World Detour’] together, and Ozzy was going, wondering off somewhere… And we just thought it was such a natural shot of Ozzy, like nobody ever sees him like that, that it was just perfect for this song.”
“To be able to, at this stage of his life, work with his friends — Slash is on the track, too; and he wrote the song with Andrew Watt, his producer — and to able to, at this stage of his life, pick up the phone to his friends and say, ‘Come on. Come on. Play. And do this.’ And they say. I think, for Ozzy, it’s probably one of his best albums.”
She also revealed what Elton John thinks about his collaboration with Ozzy and said:
“He just loved it. Ozzy asked if [Elton] would play piano — because it reminded Ozzy, when he finished it, of an Elton song. And he said, ‘Can you play the piano?’ And then Elton said yes. And then he went into the studio and then he started to sing, Elton did, and then we just kept it.
On what she thinks about the song, Sharon said:
“I’m just so happy for Ozzy that it’s been well-received. I can’t listen to it all the way because it makes me cry. I just can’t.”
