But the beginning of Sabbath was something quite different. Ozzy Osbourne shares with InTheStudio host Redbeard the fond memories of those days when he and his mates from the working-class neighborhood of Aston decided to ditch their trendy blues music, cut the band down from a 6-piece to a four, and started doing what Ozzy characterizes as ‘spooky music’.
‘I took the album home. My mum and pops have got one of these great big radiograms… I put the record on, and my father turned around to me and said, ‘Son, I’m going to ask you a question and you’ve got to be honest to me.’ I said yeah. ‘Are you sure you’re just drinking alcohol?’ I said yeah, why, what’s the matter? He said, ‘ This is very odd music. This is not music. This is weird.’ ‘ – Ozzy Osbourne
