Ozzy Goes Wylde for Zakk's Black Sabbath Cover
Wylde recently spoke to Music Radar's Joe Bosso about the decision to cover Sabbath's "Junior's Eyes."
"With me and covers, you know, I'm always going to go for the classic stuff," he said. "Of course, we all love Sabbath – I mean, who doesn't? – so I was just jammin' on the piano, and before you knew it, I was singing and playing 'Junior's Eyes.' I got a piano vamp thing going, and I started singing Ozzy's melody."
When asked if he had played his version for his former boss, Wylde said, "Yeah, I sent it to him last Father's Day. He was like [imitates Osbourne] 'Oh, Zakk, it sounds killer, man. It reminds me of a gospel tune.' No, Ozzy totally loved the Sabbath cover." more on this story
