In the early October, Ozzy Osbourne had revealed huge names he’s been working on his upcoming album. According to him, he’s been making new music with Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi, and his guitarist Zakk Wylde on the album.
“On this new album, I’m working with Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi, and Zakk [Wylde],” Osbourne said.
“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.”
