Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love’s daughter Frances Bean Cobain has shared bizarre photos of Black Sabbath singer Ozzy Osbourne on The Osbournes, where he looks bewildered. The captions include Ozzy saying, “What the fuck am I talking about.” He also says, “I don’t know what planet I’m on.” Frances Bean Cobain wrote, “Me, today.”
Ozzy told Spinner.com in 2007, “Apparently, I met (late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain), ’cause I was talking to Dave Grohl and he said, ‘You probably don’t remember this, but when you were in Devonshire Studios in the (San Fernando) Valley, me and Kurt were in the room where they had a pool table. When you walked in we were like, ‘F***ing hell.'”
“Kurt really liked Ozzy,” Dave Grohl told Mojo magazine. “Growing up in a town like Aberdeen (Washington) and hearing a band like Black Sabbath – it’s a sweet release. Suddenly there’s something outside your small-town world you can relate to when you can hear that in someone else’s music.
“The first Nirvana record, Bleach, which I don’t play on but I love, you listen to some of those songs and it’s a guitar line, a bass line, a vocal and thundering drums. There’s lot of Black Sabbath in that, for sure.”
