Ozzy Osbourne will preserve listening to his outdated data, thanks very a lot.
In a latest interview with Metal Hammer, Osbourne voiced his displeasure with trendy music saying he does not hearken to a lot of it and that it is “all fucking rehashed.” Which I suppose is true to an extent, however is not that the concept behind being influenced by the artists who got here earlier than you? To Frankenstein’s monster your means into making one thing completely different? Clearly “new concepts” are few and much between, however evolution additionally does not occur in a single day.
“It is a good thought [that Black Sabbath invented heavy metal], however we had been very influenced by The Who, Led Zeppelin, Kinks… Fuckin’ hell, after I heard The Kinks‘ ‘You Actually Acquired Me,’ I purchased the only and I performed it to fucking dying. I could not cease listening to it. I do not get that anymore with music that I hear. I do not hearken to a lot trendy music. There isn’t any new music in any respect – it is all fucking rehashed.”
Although to be truthful, research have proven that almost all of individuals type their music tastes between 13 ad 16 years old. So Osbourne being massively influenced by the music of his youth, and being turned off by the music of at present is not too stunning.
Elsewhere within the interview, Osbourne talked about he does not suppose a lot of himself as one of many guys who helped invent heavy steel.
“If individuals wanna imagine that, it is nice, however I do not go round like, ‘Oh, I am the singer in Black Sabbath, I invented this or that…’ With Black Sabbath, it was an ideal camp to be in. Tony Iommi was the legislation. He was the man. I’ve by no means but met a guitar participant that may play such demonic riffs.
“Once we first began, the one place you would get a rehearsal spot was this place the place we needed to go at 9 o’clock within the morning. The rehearsal spot was throughout from a film theatre and Tony or Geezer mentioned one morning, ‘Is not it unusual that individuals pay cash to see horror movies. Why do not we begin doing horror music?’ I assumed they had been joking after which Tony goes, [Ozzy intones the riff to the song Black Sabbath]. I used to be like, ‘Fuckin’ hell!'”
