September 18, 2022

Ozzy’s new album “Patient Number 9” is stacked with a who’s-who of rock! And he’s giving you a chance to go inside the making of the album with a three-part video series!

Below is episode one. Watch his YouTube channel the next two consecutive Fridays for the next two episodes!

The video series features interviews with Ozzy and the album’s producer Andrew Watt. Ozzy’s wife Sharon, Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath), Ozzy’s longtime guitarist Zakk Wylde, Robert Trujillo (Metallica), Chad Smith (Chili Peppers), Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses) and Mike McCready (Pearl Jam)!

The album’s title track, “Patient Number 9”, was written by Ozzy, Watt, Trujillo, Smith and Ali Tamposi and has a solo courtesy Jeff freaking Beck. They worked with legendary comic book artist / guru Todd McFarlane on the music video. 

Ozzy worked with the greats on this album; adding to Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready and Zakk Wylde played guitar. Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith did the majority of drumming, with late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins helping out too. Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo plays bass on most of the album’s tracks, with Gn’R’s Duff McKagan and Jane’s Addiction’s Chris Chaney playing too. And, for the first time ever, Black Sabbath co-founder / guitarist Tony Iommi plays on an Ozzy solo album!
