Ice Cube said it best. “Today was a good day.”
It’s always an exciting day when I get to fly out of town to “make radio” with my favorite bands and people. It’s especially cool when it’s Ozzy Osbourne. Not only is Ozzy a great guy and a real pleasure to hang out with, but the guys is a f***ing legend.
The highlight of the day came when we ran into Nikki Sixx at the studio. As you know, Motley Crue is on Ozzfest this year and Ozzy and Nikki go way back. I think Ozzy took Motley Crue out on tour in like ’83 or something. Back when both camps were trying as hard as they could to push the limits of what the human body could endure. How well do Ozzy and Nikki know each other? By smell.
When we got ready to start recording we hadn’t seen Nikki yet. A friend of mine from Ozzy’s label mentioned to me that Ozzy was “the best smelling man in rock and roll.” A strange comment for sure, unless you know Ozzy. I guess everyone who knows the guy knows that he wears this 8 Zillion dollar a bottle stuff that you can only buy at one store somewhere in Europe blah blah blah. So we get done with the interview, Ozzy is in the studio signing stuff for people and here comes Nikki down the hallway. He looks at me and says, “Is f***in’ Ozzy here? I can smell him.”
The show will be on June 17th at noon. It’s the Thursday before Ozzy’s new album “Scream” hits stores so you’ll get a chance to check out a good chunk of the album before anyone
