During a conversation with Kerrang Magazine, Ozzy Osbourne compared working with Tony Iommi & Randy Rhoads.
“Randy Rhoads came along and it was a match made in f*c*ing heaven. Randy was phenomenal, a great guy and a wonderful musician and he really helped me as a singer.”
Focusing on the creative process, Osbourne said:
“He’d hear me humming a melody around the house and go, ‘Is that yours?’ and we’d work together to build a song out of it.
He further expressed how he wasn’t ‘always’ comfortable working with Tony, saying:
“With Sabbath, it worked the other way. Tony would come up with an amazing riff and I had to put a vocal on top of it, which wasn’t always comfortable for me because I had to bend to what the band wanted.”
