OZZY OSBOURNE To Make 'Comic-Con International' Debut In San Diego
July 13, 2022
Ozzy Osbourne will make his Comic-Con International debut at this year's event on Friday, July 22 in San Diego, California. Osbourne and Todd McFarlane will reveal artwork for the limited-edition special McFarlane-designed comic book (that is available that is part of some of the special-edition album packages) along with a signing at the Stern Pinball/Rebellion Republic booth, further details of which will be announced soon. In addition, today the two revealed the alternate cover for the limited-edition cover variant of Osbourne's new "Patient Number 9" (out September 9 on Epic) album with artwork by McFarlane and Jason Shawn Alexander.
This marks the latest collaboration with Grammy winner and multiple Grammy nominee McFarlane who recently directed the video for Ozzy's new single "Patient Number 9". The song debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Hard Rock Songs chart and also tops the Hard Rock Digital Song Sales charts. It also sits in the Top 25 on the Hot Rock Songs, Hot Rock & Alternative Songs, Rock & Alternative Airplay, Mainstream Rock Airplay charts. The song earned 2.2 million radio audience impressions, 1.4 million official U.S. streams in the June 24-30 tracking week. "Patient Number 9" features a riveting solo from legendary guitarist Jeff Beck (one of the notable guest stars on the album).
"Patient Number 9" is Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee and Grammy-winning singer and songwriter Osbourne's new album and the first since his critically acclaimed, worldwide, chart-topping 2020 "Ordinary Man" release. Produced by Andrew Watt (who handled the same duties on "Ordinary Man"),the new album marks Osbourne's 13th solo studio album. It's heavy, it's hard-hitting, it's historic — it's everything you'd want from an Ozzy Osbourne record and maybe more. Working with producer Watt for the second time, Ozzy welcomed a dynamic A-list featured guests. For the first time ever, BLACK SABBATH co-founder, guitarist, and riffmaster Tony Iommi appears on an Ozzy solo album. The record also boasts guitarists Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Mike McCready of PEARL JAM, and longstanding righthand man and six-string beast Zakk Wylde who plays on the majority of the tracks. For the bulk of the album, Chad Smith of RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS held down drums, while the late Taylor Hawkins of FOO FIGHTERS appears on three songs. Old friend and one-time Ozzy bandmember Robert Trujillo of METALLICA plays bass on most of the album's tracks, with Duff McKagan of GUNS N' ROSES and Chris Chaney of JANE'S ADDICTION supplying bass on a few songs.
