Ozzy Osborune and Elton John and Slash new song
Three of the biggest rock names in history got together and created a beautiful song called Ordinary man. Ozzy starts the song off with a very beautiful intro with a beautiful haunting like voice about a man who was unprepared for fame who now travels and never has a lonely night anymore. As the song continues into the second verse, Elton John begins singing and he just sounds amazing with a haunting deep like voice then usual.
As Elton sings, he sings about people trying to kill Rock and Roll and how that has never stopped him and how he did all for you. During the chorus though, at the very end of it, they both say that they don’t want to die an ordinary man. What that is saying is, these men want to be remember, not just some random singer, they want to leave a legacy for other young musicians to follow or inspire! Overall the song is absolutely beautiful and just breathtaking. Its something

OZZY OSBOURNE’S ‘ORDINARY MAN’
SET FOR FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 21
RELEASE ON EPIC RECORDS
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter OZZY OSBOURNE has set Friday, February 21 as the release date for his new ORDINARY MAN album.

In addition, all physical copies of the album will include a unique code that will allow the purchaser to enter a sweepstakes for a chance to win one of over 300 OZZY prizes (including an official OZZY laminate to get into any show on the 2020 “NO MORE TOURS 2,” meet and greets with OZZY, a gift certificate to the OZZY global store and much more!) All details on the sweepstakes can be found at http://www.ozzy.com.
“It was a lot of fun to do though it’s a lot different from my other albums,” OZZY says of the album. “We recorded it quickly, which I haven’t done since the first Black Sabbath album. This made it a different process, which I actually enjoyed.”
Recorded in Los Angeles, the album features producer Andrew Watt on guitars, Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses) on bass and Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) on drums. Beyond the core band, ORDINARY MAN, features a who’s-who of OZZY friends and collaborators including Elton John, Post Malone, and Tom Morello.
“It all just came together,” OZZY explains of the guest stars. “Slash is a dear friend of mine, as is Elton. When I was writing ‘Ordinary Man,’ it reminded me of an old Elton song and I said to Sharon, ‘I wonder if he would sing on it?’ We asked and lo and behold, he agreed and sings and play piano on the song.”
