It is still far too early to write off Ozzy Osbourne. He knows how to bring excellent music to his fans. He surrounds himself with top-rate hard rock musicians. His latest release, Patient No. 9, has guest spots from Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck. Other standout guest spots include Robert Trujillo, Chad Smith, Duff McKagan, and Josh Homme. The late Taylor Hawkins also plays on three of the tracks.
Ozzy still has it, and with the stellar lineup on this record, he proves he isn’t giving it up any time soon.
Number seven in my Top 10 Songs of 2022 is “Parasite”, featuring Zakk Wylde on guitar, Robert Trujillo on bass, and Taylor Hawkins on drums and percussion.
