Ozzy Osbourne trying to write new material but co-writer Andrew Watt still suffering from Covid
Black Sabbath frontman and solo artist Ozzy Osbourne was recently interviewed by Kory Grow for RollingStone.
The singer released a solo album titled Ordinary Man via Epic on February 21, 2020. That record was produced by Andrew Watt who also co-wrote many of the songs and handled guitar duties. In March 2020, Watt revealed that he had tested positive for the Covid-19 virus.
In terms of what music that he has been played lately, Osbourne revealed: “I’m trying to write something new with [Ordinary Man producer] Andrew [Watt], but he had Covid. He was very sick, and he still is. The thing about this fucking Covid thing is, I don’t think they really know what they’re fucking dealing with; it changes. One time, we’re told it’s harmful to older people; now it’s also harmful to young kids. It’s fucking weird. But [Andrew] was one of the first ones to get it. And he’s still kind of sick with it. He had a good day and a bad day, you know? It fucks your lungs up.”
Osbourne added: “We were supposed to be doing it, but he texted me the other day and said, “I have to ask for some time.” I said, “Whenever you’re ready, call me.””
With respect to whether he has any song ideas, Osbourne indicated: “I have a couple ideas; not many. With Andrew, it just comes out in the moment. He’s a good guy and a good producer. One of my favorites [from Ordinary Man] is one of the last songs we did, “Today Is the End.” For some reason, that stays in my head a lot.”
