OZZY OSBOURNE Ordinary Man LP Picture Disc
LIMITED PICTURE DISC
Ozzy Osbourne has announced his first solo album in almost a decade! "There's a line in Ordinary Man where I sing, 'I don't want to die an ordinary man,' which I don't think I will," Ozzy says. "It was a lot of fun to do, though. It's a lot different from my other albums. We recorded it quickly, which I haven't done since the first Black Sabbath album. This made it a different process, which I actually enjoyed."
He adds that securing guests Elton John and Slash "just came together... When I was writing Ordinary Man it reminded me of an old Elton song, and I said to Sharon, 'I wonder if he would sing on it?' We asked and, lo and behold, he agreed, and sings and play piano on the song."
"If it wasn't for making this record, I would still be on traction, thinking, 'I'm going to be lying here forever,'" the 71-year-old concludes. "I've missed music so badly. My fans are so loyal and so good. Up until making the album, I thought I was dying. But that got me off my arse... It's the greatest album I've done."
