OZZY OSBOURNE: 'I will get back on stage if it fucking kills me'

shares footage of in-store signing sessions

13-09-2022

Ozzy Osbourne and his wife/manager Sharon sat down with Apple Music‘s Zane Lowe to break down Ozzy’s latest studio album, “Patient Number 9”.

The trio get an unexpected call from Ozzy’s producer Andrew Watt, who shares what it really takes to create an Osbourne album. Ozzy goes on to explain what it took to get his idol Jeff Beck on the song “Patient Number 9” and how excited he was when Jeff said yes.

Lowe dives into Sharon and Ozzy’s personal life, discussing family, “The Osbournes” and addiction. Despite all the hardship, the couple are completely in love and describe the healthy boundaries they’ve set in order to maintain their marriage.

Although Ozzy is still recovering from his recent health issues, “Patient Number 9” is the first step to getting him back on stage.

“I’m somewhat better, but it’s gonna take a while for me to get my balance back,” he said. “I can only do the best I can.”

Elaborating on his recovery, Ozzy said: “It’s slow. But I will get back on stage if it fucking kills me.”

Ozzy also attended an in-store album launch where he signed copies of his new ‘Patient Number 9’ album at Fingerprints Music in Long Beach last Saturday.

Produced by Andrew Watt (who handled the same duties on 2020’s “Ordinary Man”) and released on Epic, the new album marks Osbourne’s 13th solo studio album. It’s heavy, it’s hard-hitting, it’s historic — it’s everything you’d want from an Ozzy Osbourne record and maybe more.

“Patient Number 9” was written by OzzyWattRobert Trujillo (METALLICA),Chad Smith (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS) and Ali Tamposi and features a riveting solo from legendary guitarist Jeff Beck. The video marks the first collaboration from the project with artist and comic book creator Todd McFarlane. It is highlighted by McFarlane’s signature illustrations interspersed with live Ozzy vignettes in the role of “Patient Number 9,” which the revolutionary creative force in the world of comics and toys also filmed. In addition, this is the first-ever video to incorporate Ozzy’s artwork: his hand-drawn demons were animated and can be seen during the Jeff Beck solo in the song.
