“It was a lot of fun to do… it’s a lot different from my other albums,” says Ozzy Osbourne. “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.”
Speaking about the guest stars, Ozzy says it “all just came together.”
“Slash is a dear friend of mine, as is Elton. 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.”
He continues: “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.”
Ordinary Man was released on February 21.
