Rob Zombie tells story of “really weird” first encounter with Ozzy Osbourne


Rob Zombie has shared the story of the first time he met Ozzy Osbourne.

In an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music, the “Dragula” rocker remembers the encounter as “very weird.”

“I went to his house, I don’t remember why,” Zombie recalls. “And that was where I met him, at his house, and I thought, oh, it’s going to be a bunch of people. My manager will be there. Sharon will be there, whatever.”

It turned out, however, that the meeting ended up just being Rob and Ozzy.

“[Ozzy’s] like, ‘Oh, Rob, I want to play you my new record,"” Zombie explains. “So he puts on his new record, I think he’s going to play one song maybe. He plays the whole album looking directly at me, singing most of it.”

“I’m simultaneously thinking, ‘This is awesome, and this is so uncomfortable, I don’t know what to do,"” he adds.

Zombie will release his new album The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy on March 12.
