“I thought they were taking the piss”: Ozzy Osbourne on his first meeting with Metallica

Metal Hammer

Ozzy Osbourne may have helped define heavy metal with Black Sabbath in 1970, but Metallica took the genre to near unfathomable heights almost 20 years later when they released The Black Album.

Five years before that, Ozzy took the young thrashers under his wing for a tour of the US in Spring ’86. Their paths have crossed plenty in the decades since, so we could think of little better than getting one of metal’s biggest icons to weigh in on the genre’s biggest band.
