Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne has revealed that during his painful health issues this year, Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash has made an effort to call him, while Geezer Butler and Bill Ward have not. Ozzy Osbourne revealed yesterday why he really cheated on his wife Sharon.
“Slash, Jonathan Davis (Korn frontman) and Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath guitarist) have all called. Tony has called daily to ask how I’m feeling. That means so much when you can’t f***ing move. I’ve not heard a thing from Geezer Butler or Bill Ward (original Black Sabbath members) though, which is OK because you don’t have to call. But if it was any of them I’d be on the phone all the time.”
Ozzy Osbourne ‘whacking’ cocaine was recently revealed by a bandmate. Geezer Butler, who is busy playing in his new supergroup Deadland Ritual, recently told My Planet Rocks about switching from guitar to bass, “”I started off on acoustic guitar, my brother bought me one for 50 pennies. I was about 11 at the time.
It had two strings on it, and it took me two years to figure out that if you put your fingers on the fret it changed the note. [Laughs] Of course, I was trying to learn all these Beatles chords on this guitar with two strings – absolutely impossible.” Ozzy Osbourne recently revealed why he is losing weight.
Butler added, “And I think for my 14th birthday, the other brother bought me an actual six-string guitar, and I just started learning all The Beatles stuff.”
