0

According to an interview he gave to “Whiplash” radio show on KLOS, Ozzy revealed that he has some material for his next solo abum. “I’ve got about seven songs. One’s called ‘Mr. Armageddon’, one’s called ‘Crack Cocaine’.” Said the Madman. On the interview he also spoke about Zakk Wylde and how he was picked to play in his band: I must have had ten thousand resumes and tapes sent in. Believe it or not, the only one I picked up was Zakk Wylde. My wife said to me, ‘You’ve gotta go through these,’ and I said, ‘I can’t go through ten thousand. That would be insane after the first hundred.’ So the only one I really looked at was Zakk Wylde, and he had a photo, and I thought, ‘Oh, another Randy Rhoads clone.’ So when I met him, we just hit it off. It’s not like having a bandmember so much as a family member — I mean, we’re like family, you know. It was inevitable that Zakk would do his own thing eventually, but we have always remained very close friends — we talk to each other, go out socially from time to time. But I have just done a few gigs over the last couple of months, [and] his playing has improved unbelievably. My jaw dropped at how good he’s got. He’s really come on since I have been playing with him before”. Referring to the now famous show during the eclipse recently he commented: ” he was playing, and I thought, ‘Is that him?’ I mean, his speed is mindblowing; he is so fast with his fingers on the fretboard.”
