From Jeff Beck, Tony Iommi and Eric Clapton to Duff McKagan, Josh Homme and Mike McCready, Ozzy Osbourne’s forthcoming album, Patient Number 9, doesn’t lack for major musician star power.
But there’s one additional guitar icon that Ozzy tried and unfortunately did not succeed in bringing on board the project: Led Zeppelin legend Jimmy Page.
In a new interview with Metal Hammer, Ozzy said that he reached out to Page to record a guest solo, but never received a response.
"I don't even know if he plays any more, but I thought getting Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page meant having the greatest guitarists on the planet," Osbourne said. "But I never heard from him. Maybe he'd lost his phone or something."
