Ozzy Osbourne and Turnstile are among the many top-nominated acts within the rock and steel classes for the 2023 Grammy Awards. The legendary steel singer earned 4 nods whereas the hardcore band earned three nominations prematurely of the February fifth ceremony in Los Angeles.
Ozzy’s newest solo LP, Affected person Quantity 9, which contains a plethora of notable visitor musicians, is up for Finest Rock Album alongside The Black Keys’s Dropout Boogie, Elvis Costello & The Imposters’ The Boy Named If, Idles’ Crawler, Machine Gun Kelly’s Mainstream Sellout, and Spoon’s Lucifer on the Couch.
Within the Finest Rock Efficiency class, Ozzy (“Affected person Quantity 9” that includes Jeff Beck) and Turnstile (“Blackout”) will compete in opposition to Beck (“Previous Man”), The Black Keys (“Wild Baby”), Brandi Carlile (“Damaged Horses”), and IDLES (“Crawl!”).
For Finest Rock Track, Ozzy (“Affected person Quantity 9” that includes Jeff Beck) and Turnstile (“Vacation”) go up in opposition to Purple Sizzling Chili Peppers (“Black Summer time”), Brandi Carlile (“Damaged Horses”), and The Struggle on Medication (“Harmonia’s Dream”).
And within the Finest Metallic Efficiency discipline, Ozzy’s “Degradation Guidelines” (that includes Tony Iommi) and Turnstile’s “Blackout” will vie for the respect with Ghost’s “Name Me Little Sunshine,” Megadeth’s “We’ll Be Again,” and Muse’s “Kill or Be Killed.”
The inclusion of Turnstile (who had been named Consequence’s 2021 Heavy Band of the 12 months) and Muse within the steel class is a bit odd, however there isn’t a class for hardcore, the place Turnstile’s “Blackout” would match, whereas the Muse track does characteristic some fairly heavy riffs. Traditionally, the Grammys has been fairly wide-ranging in the case of qualifying steel. Most famously, prog-rockers Jethro Tull bizarrely beat Metallica for the very first steel Grammy in 1989.
In the meantime, Ozzy is the topic of Consequence‘s newest cowl story, by which he opens up about Affected person Quantity 9, his present well being battles, his transfer again to England, and way more.
