Ozzy Goes Wylde for Zakk's Black Sabbath Cover

(Gibson) As previously reported, Zakk Wylde's Black Label Society have a new album coming out next week, titled The Song Remains Not the Same. The album features acoustic reworkings of songs from the band's most recent album, Order of the Black, as well as covers of tunes by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Traffic and Black Sabbath.

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
