Ozzy Osbourne Shares His Conspiracy Theory About Eric Clapton


Black Sabbath icon Ozzy Osbourne revealed some occasions that he and famous guitarist Eric Clapton were together in his latest conversation with SiriusXM. The musician admitted that he was paranoid about Clapton and what the guitar player thought about him back then.

Following his latest record, ‘Ordinary Man,’ released on February 21, 2020, Osbourne didn’t give a break to his recording sessions and focused on his new work in a short time. The singer announced his upcoming album entitled ‘Patient Number 9,’ which he will share on September 9, 2022, with its self-titled single featuring Jeff Beck. Along with Beck, Osbourne collaborated with Zakk Wylde and Tony Iommi.

In addition to them, Eric Clapton joined the Black Sabbath legend to perform a song from the record, ‘One Of Those Days.’ While the release date was getting closer, Osbourne decided to share a couple of moments with Clapton. The vocalist recalled that the paranoid story began when he attended an award show and was photographed with the guitarist by adding that he was still using drugs and alcohol back then.

The Prince of Darkness thought that Clapton wouldn’t want to be on that photo and would try to remove it. Then Osbourne thought that Clapton was stalking him after they met a few times at AA meetings. Osbourne unveiled that he knew the guitarist hated him, but it turned out it was just a conspiracy theory when Clapton came and talked with him. The singer went on to say that he saw the photograph in a magazine and he bought it.

Osbourne unveiled the situation, saying:

“Many, many years ago, me and Sharon were in New York, and we had to go to an award show. Everybody was there. I was still doing drugs and alcohol, and I was all freaked out by it. So, we go to this award show, and afterward, there’s me, Grace Jones, that chick I did the award show with. Me, Grace Jones, and I wanted a picture of Eric Clapton, me, and Grace Jones together.

He’d just come out of someplace. So, Eric was freaked out, which I didn’t know. I’d convinced myself that he was going to stop this photograph from being released. I went to an AA meeting in the San Fernando Valley many years later; it was like ten years later. I turned around in this AA meeting, and there at the back was Eric Clapton sitting there. I’m, like, ‘F*cking hell.’ I’m thinking, ‘He still remembers.’ Not thinking of what he’s done in the last ten years. I’m thinking, ‘All he’s done, he’s still thinking how much he hates me.’”

He added:

“I’m thinking, ‘At the end of the meeting, I’m going to go out that door. I’m legging this. I’m thinking, ‘Eric hates me. He’s going to call me the biggest cunt he ever met.’ So, I’m just going back to cross the road on a mission. I’ll get in the car and drive off.

A couple of weeks later, I go the meeting again. There he is again. So, I’m just about to cross the road and get in my car and drive off. He goes, ‘Ozzy.’ I go, ‘Here we go.’ He goes, ‘Good to see you in the room.’ We had a chat, and I thought, ‘Wow, what a nice guy.’ The next week, I go to a music stand, and that photograph was in the magazine, the first magazine I picked up.”
