Ozzy Osbourne on ’13’: ‘It’s Better Than My Wildest Dreams’

April 5th, 2013
Ozzy

Ozzy Osbourne

“The album is mindblowing, [that’s] how good it is. I’m so over the moon about the way the album turned out. We wrote 16 songs … and I put it on my CD player, expecting me to be unhappy with the end result, but this big grin came on my face and my hair on the back on my neck [stood up] … It’s better than my wildest dreams; it’s so good.”

He continued: “People have been quoting me that this album was quite possibly the most important album of my career. What I meant by that is I didn’t want it to sound like a follow-up to ‘Never Say Die!’, ’cause that was when we were dying out within the band.”

BLACK SABBATH Laying Down Bass Tracks For New Album Today

November 15th, 2012

Heavy metal grand-daddies BLACK SABBATH checked in today with the brief update that Geezer Butler is all set to record some more bass tracks on the new album.

When asked about progress on new Black Sabbath material and reports that he has laid down guitar for 15 new songs, he responds, “I know that, but that’s wrong. When Ozzy (Osbourne) said it, I think he meant what we’d done… we’d written the 15 songs and we played them all. But now, at the moment, we’re recording them. We recorded them at first, at my house in England, just as demos, but now we’re doing them for real. So, we’re about six tracks in now, at the moment.”

Ian Gillan & Tony Iommi: WhoCares – To Release 2-CD Set Of New Music, Classics and Rarities

August 8th, 2012

Great Music…For A Good Cause

Reuniting for the first time since their collaboration on Black Sabbath’s 1983 Born Again album, Deep Purple´s Ian Gillan and Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi took everybody by surprise in 2011 when they released the charity singles: “Out Of My Mind” and “Holy Water.” For the recording of these songs, the two rock legends called a few friends, asking for some “help.” Jason Newsted (Metallica), Jon Lord (Deep Purple, 1941-2012), Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden), and Linde Lindström (HIM) completed the supergroup WhoCares.

Now, “Out Of My Mind” and “Holy Water” will be featured in a special 2-disc set of rarities and recordings culled from the careers of Iommi and Gillan. The WhoCares double-CD will be released in North American on August 28. [MSRP $17.98].

Amongst the tracks are the two original WhoCares songs, Deep Purple’s unreleased studio jam “Dick Pimple,” a song from Repo Depo (a band Ian Gillan formed before the Deep Purple reunion) which never released an official song before this CD. Also included is “Zero The Hero,” from the aforementioned Black Sabbath Born Again release (which is the only album to feature Gillan on lead vocals), as well as two unreleased songs from Tony Iommi featuring Glenn Hughes.

The “Out of My Mind” and “Holy Water” singles were a joyful and inspired moment from two musicians with nothing to prove, willing to support music where music is considered a luxury. The spark to bring Iommi and Gillan in a studio together again was to finance the rebuilding of a music school in Armenia they had visited together on various occasions in past years.

“As I said once in the song ‘Razzle Dazzle,’ it’s a real fine line between an orgy of destruction and a wonderful time,’” states Gillan. “The destruction of conformity in this case: some of these pieces never really fitted into their contemporary program and got sidelined or forgotten, and some of the album tracks never had much exposure. As the track listing for this album came together, I noticed many of the titles had character similarities: a combination of freshness as they finally felt the sun on their backs and rebellion in a ‘yeah told you so’ kind of way. And that adds up to a wonderful time and more money for the music school we are building in Armenia.

“The ad-hoc benefit WhoCares band,” continues Gillan, “was a band put together by Tony Iommi and myself on a flight home from Yerevan, where we’d been deeply humbled by the honor and expectation bestowed upon us. Well that’s it really, in a nutshell, so to speak, what more can I say? It’s all there in the music.”

The release of this very special 2-CD set is a must for all Deep Purple fans and fans of hard rock.

Eagle works directly alongside talent to produce top quality, High Definition and 3D programs, both concerts and documentaries, including The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, The Who, Queen, The Doors, Jeff Beck, U2, Peter Gabriel, Paul McCartney and Ozzy Osbourne.

BLACK SABBATH – Setlist And Fan Filmed Video From Lollapalooza 2012

August 4th, 2012
Black Sabbath

Black Sabbath

BLACK SABBATH headlined this year’s Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago, IL this Friday (August 3rd), marking their only North American gig of 2012. Following is an excerpt from Ultimate Classic Rock’s review of the show:

“During the hot and humid Midwest evening, singer Ozzy Osbourne’s voice may not have hit every note, but our reporter on the scene told us that he more than made up for it with the showmanship, enthusiasm and boundless energy during the show. One of Ozzy’s most human moments ironically came during the band’s performance of ‘Iron Man,’ in which he ran over to kiss the woman who was offering a sign language translation for the deaf audience members and managed to keep up with the band throughout.”

The setlist on the night was as follows:

‘Black Sabbath’
‘The Wizard’
‘Beyond the Wall of Sleep’
‘N.I.B’
‘Into the Void’
