Ozzy Recording Dylan Cover With Mountain: Is He Or Isn't He? (8/16/2006)

On April 20th I posted a news report that said Ozzy was going to record a Dylan cover with Mountain (see here). A few days later I was told this story was untrue by Osbourne management. But now, an interview with Leslie West (of Mountain) has been posted over on which seems to confirm Ozzy recording the Dylan cover. Read on:

MOUNTAIN has been working on their new album, which is a tribute to Bob Dylan. Singer-guitarist Leslie West and drummer Corky Laing have recorded a number of Dylan songs for the project, including "Subterranean Homesick Blues", "Gotta Serve Somebody" and "Blowing In The Wind". They've also enlisted some all-star help, including ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND and GOV'T MULE singer-guitarist Warren Haynes and Ozzy Osbourne. West said that he recently got together with Osbourne and gave him a set of lyrics. "You know, I rearranged these Dylan songs, and I picked a really great one for him to do with me 'Masters Of War'," he said. "So he's got it, and as soon as he finishes Ozzfest, he's gonna sing it. We'll alternate verses and do the choruses together... It's really (a) thrill. He's so great, man. He's still freakin' got it."

The MOUNTAIN album likely won't be released until next year.

Ozzy has known West and Laing for over 35 years BLACK SABBATH's first U.S. tour was as the opening act for MOUNTAIN.

The friendship was renewed last year when Osbourne recorded MOUNTAIN's "Mississippi Queen" for his "Prince Of Darkness" box set, and he got West to play guitar on the track.
