Every metalhead in the world has heard some insane story about Ozzy Osbourne. Whether it’s snorting more ants than Mötley Crüe, snorting more coke than David Lee Roth, or just going old-school and tucking his dick between his legs, heavy metal’s Prince of Darkness has done all the things that we dream of in our sicker moments. So why not take part in a time-honored tradition of getting a group of metal folks in a room together and having them compare their favorite Ozzy stories?
On this week’s episode of our metal talk show Last Words, hosts Jordan Olds (Two Minutes To Late Night), Katy Irizarry (Season Of Mist), and Doc Coyle (Bad Wolves/Ex Man Podcast) are joined by Spirit Adrift frontman and self-professed Ozzy fanatic Nate Garrett, and together they talk all things Ozzy while discussing the trailer for the madman’s upcoming new A&E documentary.
“I watched [the trailer] earlier today in preparation for this, and it was really well put-together,” says Nate. “There’s actually a 2011 Ozzy doc called God Bless Ozzy Osbourne that’s great, that’s crucial viewing. I would recommend viewing that as a precursor to this, to see what jives and what doesn’t.
“It’s a wonder this man’s still alive,” he continues. “I love Ozzy with all my heart. He represents every fan of music that got to be involved in it in some way.”
“Two favorite Ozzy solo albums, and two favorite Sabbath albums,” challenges Jordan.
“Aw man,” sighs Nate, finally deciding, “Ozzy-period Sabbath, I always say Sabotage and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath are my favorites…for Ozzy solo stuff, I think Diary of a Madman is more solid than the first album…and then I think the other one that stands out the most in his catalog, where he had a whole lot of help from the bass player Bob Daisley, is No More Tears.”
