Mark Strigl: I always wanted to hear Ozzy return to more of thatclassic sound that he had with Randy Rhoads on Blizzard Of Ozz and theDiary record. In the same way that Metallica have kind of gone back totheir roots, Do you think Ozzy would ever consider returning to thatearly-80s sound on an album?
Tommy Clufetos: I think most definitely, I wouldn’t say early 80s butI think he is going to return to a classic rock band record. What hehas expressed is that he wants to make it the band playing live in aroom so wherever that takes us. Less technology and more amps anddrums.
