Ozzy Osbourne has revealed more of the special guests that will appear on his upcoming album. Among them will be his Black Sabbath bandmate Tony Iommi, his guitarist Zakk Wylde, who previously said he wasn’t going to appear on the effort, Jeff Beck, and Eric Clapton.
Osbourne said the following during a recent episode of “Ozzy Speaks” on SiriusXM’s Ozzy’s Boneyard:
“On this new album, I’m working with Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi and Zakk [Wylde].”
He continued when asked what it’s like collaborating with other artists:
“You just write the song and you just ask them to sing [or play] what you [give them]. The good thing is it’s interesting to work with somebody else. But the bad thing is if it don’t work, you can’t [just let it go] ’cause they’ll get all pissed off”
He also added the following when asked if a guest ever turned in something that he didn’t like:
“No. Eric Clapton, on this new record, one of the lyrics was about Jesus, and he wasn’t sure about that. But it was all right in the end… [The solo he did] is very good.”
This news comes after producer Andrew Watt previously said that the record will also feature contributions from Robert Trujillo (Metallica), Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters), and Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers).
