ZAKK WYLDE ‘Has Nothing To Do’ With OZZY OSBOURNE’s New Solo Album

Ozzy Osbourne and Zakk Wylde

Guitarist Zakk Wylde has said that he is not involved in Ozzy Osbourne‘s new upcoming solo album in any way.

During an appearance on the latest installment of “The Cassius Morris Show” (hear audio below), Zakk was asked if he had any part in the recording sessions for Osbourne‘s next album.

“No, no — we didn’t do anything on that,” he replied. “Ozz, he just jammed with some friends that he knows. He was just, like, ‘Hey, Zakk, I ended up tracking some of the stuff,’ or whatever, and I was, like, ‘Oh, great, Ozz.’ That Post Malone thing [‘Take What You Want’] I heard was awesome. 

Post came down to a BLACK LABEL [SOCIETY] show about maybe — I don’t know — almost half a year ago or something like that, before the Ozzy thing. But he just came down and he was, like, ‘Hey, Zakk, what’s happening?’ A really cool guy and everything like that. When I heard the track, Ozzy sounds great on it, man. But no, I didn’t have nothing to do with the stuff that Ozz just recorded.”

“The whole thing is we could always get together and record another thing. So it’s all good, man,” Zakk added.

In a recent interview with The SunOzzy has revealed that he finished work on his next solo album.

“I’ve made a new album and it’s helped get me back on track,” Legendary BLACK SABBATH singer said. “I was just lying in my own self-pity for months. It’s the greatest album I’ve done.”

He said the record came after he was asked to appear on a track by Post Malone.

“I’d never even heard of this kid. He wanted me to sing on his song “Take What You Want,” so I did and then one thing led to another. I started recording a new album with Post Malone’s producer Andrew Watt. It’s only nine tracks but it was a catalyst to get me to where I am today.”

“If it wasn’t for making this record I would still be on traction, thinking, ‘I’m going to be lying here for ever’. I’ve missed music so badly. My fans are so loyal and so good. Up until making the album I thought I was dying. But that got me off my a**e.”

He added: “If it wasn’t for making this record I would still be on traction, thinking, ‘I’m going to be lying here for ever’. I’ve missed music so badly. My fans are so loyal and so good. Up until making the album I thought I was dying. But that got me off my a—s.”

“This is my first recording in a studio for ten years, so I do feel a bit out of touch. Music goes straight online these days and that’s quicker than it takes me to write a text. It’s all about downloads and streaming now. What the f*ck does that mean? What’s Spotify? I thought it was a skin problem where you woke up spotified.

“The album was all finished in four weeks,” he added.” I said to Sharon that I didn’t feel like I’d made an album because we haven’t ended up screaming at each other.”
