LAST MAN STAND­ING

Rock leg­end Ozzy Os­bourne

Emirates Man - - CONTENTS -

If you've picked up a rock al­bum or heard the sig­na­ture twang of power chord over the past 35 years, chances are Ozzy Os­bourne had a hand in it. The Black Sab­bath front man re­leased over a dozen al­bums, re­cruit­ing leg­endary gui­tarists like Randy Rhoads and Zakk Wylde to pro­duce a sound like no other. Songs like “Smoke On The Wa­ter” and “Iron Man” are rm fan favourites, but it was al­bums like Para­noid and We Sold Our Soul for Rock & Roll that would go on to in uence just about ev­ery rock and roller of the past four decades. To­day, Ozzy might be bet­ter known for his fond­ness of bat ke­babs and re­al­ity TV shows, but Black Sab­bath is still go­ing strong. Their lat­est al­bum 13 went no. 1 in, you guessed it, 13 coun­tries, and you can catch the high­lights — along with other leg­endary tunes — at the Yas Is­land du Arena on May 29.
