Ozzy Osbourne reveals he wanted to be in a band with John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Jimi Hendrix

Ozzy Osbourne has become a legend in the rock industry. Although he was once a member of a famous band, he had his share of dream bandmates, including some of the most iconic names in music.

In an episode of his family The Osbourne Family podcast, his daughter Kelly Osbourne read a fan question asking the singer which artist he would choose to form his dream band.

He immediately answered himself, John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Jimi Hendrix.

His wife, Sharon Osbourne, later noticed he forgot to name a drummer, and he later replied that it was Tommy Clufetos, someone he had worked with in the past.

“It must have been a great job,” said his son, Jack Osbourne.

It makes sense that Ozzy would name two Beatles members since he has been a fan of the group for a long time.

In a 2022 interview with Rolling Stone, the singer revealed that the legendary band has always been his favorite and that he plays their music every day. He previously tried to get Paul McCartney to collaborate and play bass on his song “Dreamer,” but the musician told him that Robert Trujillo’s work was too good to replace.

Speaking about his favorite Beatles song, he shared with Classic Rock that “She Loves You” changed his life.

“‘She Loves You’ had a huge impact on me. I remember exactly where I was. I was walking along Witton Road in Aston, I had a blue transistor radio and when that song came on, I knew right then and there what I wanted to do with my life,” he added.

He added that the song was “very fresh” at the time and gave him a “great feeling”, which later led him to become an avid Beatles fan.

“They were amazing. I owe my career to them because they gave me the desire to pursue a career in music,” he added.

The news comes after Ozzy Osbourne canceled his performance at the Mad Monster Party in Phoenix, AZ last month.

Sharon took social media revealed that the singer was advised by his doctor not to fly, which forced him, his wife and daughter Kelly to cancel their appearances. However, Jack was still able to attend the event.

“We want to thank you all for your continued support of Ozzy. It means a lot to him; you have no idea,” the former Conversation said the landlord.
