Ozzy Osbourne has always been known for his iconic voice and heavy metal music. But what would happen if he was given the chance to create his dream supergroup? Here is the dream music band that makes Ozzy Osbourne excited.
During the latest interview with Metal Hammer, Ozzy Osbourne picks his dream supergroup. The first member of Ozzy’s dream team would be none other than the legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon.
“I’d love to do something with John Lennon or Jimi Hendrix. I’d love to do something with Randy Rhoads again. I’d love Paul McCartney to play on one of my albums. He’s a great bass player.
And Ozzy added, “That’s a great band. There are no drummers in that band, though,” he notes. “You’d need to get a drummer.”
Next up on the list is the session drummer of Black Sabbath, Tommy Clufetos. Ozzy described him as “Tommy Clufetos is my drummer now and he’s a great drummer.”
Last but not least, Ozzy picked keyboardist Paul McCartney of The Beatles. “The song that made me decide what I want to do in my life was She Loves You by The Beatles. I had this blue transistor radio – I remember it like it was yesterday – and I went, ‘Fuck… what is this?’ It was so profound! They just fired my imagination. I wanted to be a Beatle. I wanted Paul McCartney to marry my sister! My bedroom wall was covered in fucking Beatles pictures.”
Of course, it’s all just a dream for Ozzy, as some of these musicians have passed away and the logistics of bringing together such a talented group would be nearly impossible. But it’s fun to imagine what kind of music they would create if given the chance.
Ozzy’s dream supergroup is a testament to the incredible talent of these musicians and their impact on the world of rock and roll. While we may never get to see them perform together, their music will continue to inspire generations to come.
Also, Ozzy Osbourne recently said he is not retiring from touring:
“Probably one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to share with my loyal fans. My singing voice is fine. However, after three operations, stem cell treatments, endless physical therapy sessions, and most recently groundbreaking Cybernics Treatment, my body is still physically weak.
I am honestly humbled by the way you’ve all patiently held onto your tickets for all this time, but in all good conscience, I have now come to the realization that I’m not physically capable of doing my upcoming European/UK tour dates, as I know I couldn’t deal with the travel required. Believe me when I say that the thought of disappointing my fans really F***S ME UP, more than you will ever know. Never would I have imagined that my touring days would have ended this way.
So, if I can ever get back to where I can tour again, fine. But right now, if you said to me, ‘Can you go on the road in a month?’ I couldn’t say yes. I mean, if I could tour I’d tour. But right now I can’t book tours because right now, I don’t think I could pull them off. If I get OK today. If the doctor said to me today, ‘Oh, you can tour.’ It would take another six months to get it together, you know? The only thing I’ve got that keeps me going is making records. But I can’t do that forever. I gotta get out there.
This f***ing press drive you nuts. I mean, I looked in the magazine, ‘Ozzy’s on his last legs.’ I’m f***ing not dying.”
