It is a little disturbing how many people with very serious problems wrote to the former (and future) Black Sabbath front-man regarding serious medical problems, and while he was always willing to put his two cents in, Ozzy told every single one of them to visit a real doctor. Trust Me, I’m Dr. Ozzy isn’t going to change the way you live day to day, but it will provide you with plenty of entertaining anecdotes that just may prove to be applicable to your life.
Say what you will about the prince of darkness, but the man knows how to put on a show, to get and most importantly KEEP the crowd involved. It is an experience. Yes, it may primarily be the same show he did last year but for the approximately two hours that Ozzy is on the stage, you sweat, you wave your hands, you clap, you sing, you hear the f-bomb a million times and you scream.
While preparing for his current tour with Black Label Society, Glide caught up with Ozzy Osbourne’s lead guitarist Zakk Wylde to speak about the loss of his good friend Dimebag Darrell, filling in for Dickey Betts in the Allman Brothers Band, spending the years with Ozzy and just plan old ass whoopin rock and roll.
