Before playing the Metallica’s “Battery”, Sharon said: “I feel like we’re their parents. We’ve known them from when they were so young, and seeing them all grow up, have their own families… And since Robert [Trujillo, former Ozzy & current Metallica bassist], who is, like… he is part of the Osbourne family. [Since] Robert Trujillo joined them, we’re even more connected with them. It’s family. You know, they are family. And [we have] so much respect for Metallica. And [I] just personally love each and every one of ’em.”

She added: “[Metallica drummer] Lars [Ulrich] is a bit of a bigmouth — he needs a good slap sometimes — but we love him.”

Back in 2008, Ulrich stated about Osbourne: “In 1986, Ozzy gave us our first break by taking us out on tour here in America, so whenever we get the call to play or hang together, of course, our response is, ‘Fuck yeah! Just tell us when and where, and we’ll be there.”
