Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde talked about Osbourne’s upcoming album by sharing his feelings about working with Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Tony Iommi in his latest interview with Australian Rock Show Podcast.
Ozzy Osbourne released his latest and twelfth studio album entitled ‘Ordinary Man’ on February 21, 2020, which was produced by Andrew Watt and Louis Bell. The singer collaborated with legendary musicians such as Elton John, Guns N’ Roses’ Slash and Duff McKagan, Travis Scott, and many more.
Even though the star-studded album made Osbourne’s fans very excited, some of them got disappointed and shocked about Zakk Wylde’s absence as a musician who has been playing guitar for the Black Sabbath frontman for more than 30 years. However, it’s announced that the guitarist would be back to the studio for the new album.
Recently, Osbourne revealed that he will team up with Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, and Tony Iommi for his upcoming thirteenth studio album and it was planned to be released in 2022. Wylde reflected his feelings about working with these iconic musicians saying that it was unbelievable and surreal. He added that it’s an honor to perform with his heroes by highlighting that his younger self wouldn’t believe it.
Wylde said in his interview that:
“If you would have told me when I was 15 years old that I would be playing on a record with Ozzy, Tony Iommi, Jeff Beck, and Eric Clapton, I would have been, like, ‘Yeah, okay. I guess we’ll be going for pizza with them as well.’ It’s just, like, ‘Yeah, okay. Whatever, man.’However, yeah, it’s definitely pretty surreal. It’s an honor. Obviously, they are all my heroes — Ozzy and everybody, all the other guys. It’s definitely a humbling, honoring moment for sure.”
