Ozzy pointed out that one of the biggest blessings in the whole situation was the fact that many of fellow musicians cared about his state of health.
“I’ll tell you the people who have been great. Jonathan [Davis] from KORN, he calls me regularly,” Ozzy said. “Tony Iommi‘s kept in touch, Bill Ward‘s kept in touch. Slash. It’s been amazing. You find out who cares.”
Speaking about the album, he said: “There’s so much joy in it. And it picked me up out of my blues, definitely. We’ve captured the essence of fun. And it felt good to achieve something.
Ozzy added: “It’s like swimming from one side of the world to the other and you go: ‘There’s land!’ It made me think, ‘I’m not f*cking done yet!'”
