Steve Vai recently revealed that he has recorded an entire unreleased album with the legendary Ozzy Osbourne.
The rock guitarist disclosed the news during an interview with the Iris website Eonmusic during the promotion of his own Gash record that has been shelved for three decades.
When the interviewer asked Vai about his thoughts on Osbourne retiring from the road, he said, “Well, I’m sitting on a whole Ozzy record, and it’s like the Gash record – not ‘like’ the Gash record – but it’s a project that I recorded that’s sitting on the shelf.”
“I don’t have any control over it or rights to it, obviously, but we did record some pretty good stuff. The interesting thing about that stuff we recorded from a guitar perspective is all of my rhythm guitar parts, I use an octave divider [guitar effect], and that record doesn’t sound like anything else,” he added.
However, in a social media post, Vai later explained that he “spoke a bit carelessly about ‘sitting on an entire Ozzy album.’” He explained that while the duo wrote enough songs for an album, only “bumpy” demos were recorded.
