Ozzy Osbourne Disputes COVID-19 Vaccine Conspiracy Theories:
Billy Morrison: What about the vaccine?
Ozzy Osbourne: I want to get the shot, but –
Billy Morrison: You do? ‘Cause you know, the conspiracy theories, right?
Ozzy Osbourne: I Look at it this way. If I don’t get it, if I don’t have the shot, right? I know there’s side effects and b******* and…
Billy Morrison: Well, there’s a mutual friend of ours, who I’m not going to name, who is convinced there’s a microchip in it. Convinced!
Ozzy Osbourne: When you think about that, what you just said, all these different conspiracies about the f***ing vaccine. I look at it like this. If I don’t get the shot and I get the virus, there’s a good chance I ain’t going to be here.
Billy Morrison: Absolutely. Between us, I mean, I’ve injected brick dust in the past, and you’ve snorted pretty much anything that’s snortable. You think about what we’ve done. Right?
Ozzy Osbourne: I mean, come on.
Billy Morrison: Think about the shit we’ve put in our bodies, and then we go, “Oh yeah, but… Ooh, I don’t know about that.”
Ozzy Osbourne: “I can’t eat that because it looks a bit off. Can’t eat that chip it fell on the floor.”
Billy Morrison: The greatest thing is the next junkie that cleans up and goes, “is it organic?”
Ozzy Osbourne’s Songwriting Comes To Him At Night:
Billy Morrison: Do you only jot down lyric ideas and melody ideas when you’re in album mode or is that your whole life you just jot it down?
Ozzy Osbourne: You’ve been with me, I’ll be flying around and I go, “Why don’t we go with this, Billy?”
Billy Morrison: That is very true. A knock on the hotel door at two in the morning, “Billy, I’ve got a melody!
Ozzy Osbourne: Yeah, but that’s kind of just what happens… You must’ve done this, you lay in bed and then you hear this f***ing symphony in your head, and you go, “It’s that good. No f***ing way I’m going to forget this tomorrow morning.” Next morning – woo.
Billy Morrison: And do you think that is, you’ve learned over the years, you got as a songwriter, you’ve got to take that moment when it comes?
Ozzy Osbourne: Oh, it’s like, I’ve said to you before. I don’t so much think I’m a co-songwriter. I’m a co-song-receiver. They come from – I dunno where the f*** – “Where the f*** did that come from?”
