Another fun interview with Zakk Wylde. This time he talked about Ozzy Osbourne’s dedication to his fans, explaining to Hatebreed’s Jamie Jasta how despite the mellow attitude, Ozzy used to do everything in his power to be able to perform and not cancel a single gig (transcribed by UG):
“I remember Ozzy getting shots into his neck – with steroids and stuff like that. He would never cancel a show. I mean, you wanna talk about the fortitude of rock. The pillar of strength. [Laughs]
“No matter how banged up we got the night before, Ozz would just get up there… He’s feeling like a prison ass, but when he got up there he’d still knock it out.
“And then after the show is when he’d reward himself with a drink. Ozz would never even have a touch of cocktail… Even in his drinking days, he would never touch a cocktail before the show. After the show though, it was game on.”
