ROB ZOMBIE Recalls His ‘Uncomfortable’ First Meeting With OZZY OSBOURNE

Rob Zombie Ozzy Osbourne

During a recent conversation with Apple Music‘s Zane Lowe, Rob Zombie talked about his relationship with Ozzy Osbourne and the unusual first encounter they had together.

Ozzy‘s great. I’ve known Ozzy for a long time,” Rob said. “We toured together for the first time maybe 20 years ago, but I met him before. The first time I met Ozzy was really weird. I went to his house — I don’t remember why — and that was where I met him, at his house. And I thought, ‘Oh, there’s gonna be a bunch of people. My manager will be there, [Ozzy‘s wife] Sharon will be there.’

“And it ends up with just me and Ozzy by ourselves; I just met him. And he’s, like, ‘Oh, Rob. I wanna play you my new record.’ So he puts on his new record. I think he’s gonna play one song maybe. He plays the whole album, looking directly at me, singing most of it. And I’m simultaneously thinking, ‘This is awesome,’ and, ‘This is so uncomfortable, I don’t know what to do.'”
