Guesting on the Talk Is Jericho podcast – hosted by Fozzy frontman Chris Jericho – Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, revealed that he played on Ozzy Osbourne’s forthcoming album, reprising his role from 2020’s Ordinary Man record. He also names some of the other musicians due to appear on the album. Check out the interview below.
Smith: «We’ve got Robert Trujillo (Metallica) playing on some songs, who’s been in Ozzy’s band. Duff’s (McKagan / Guns N’ Roses) on a couple again. Tony Iommi and Ozzy have never collaborated outside of Black Sabbath; Tony sent us a bunch of riffs and we took what we thought was the best of ’em, which was fucking great. So Andy (Watt / guitars, producer) on the bass doing fucking great. It’s fucking got everything. It’s got all the stuff that you would want. Ozzy loves it.
Then Eric Clapton plays a fucking wah-wah Cream-type solo. Then Jeff Beck is on two songs. Mike McCready’s (Pearl Jam) on a track. Josh Homme, my neighbor from Queens Of The Stone Age, solos on a track, and then Zakk Wylde is on the record as well, all over it. So it’s like if you’re a guitar player… pretty fucking good.»
