Robert Trujillo To Guest on Next Ozzy Osbourne Album

Robert Trujillo

Prior to landing his current spot in Metallica, Robert Trujillo spent seven years touring the world with rock icon Ozzy Osbourne. Now the bassist and singer will be reunited again as the former Black Sabbath frontman revealed Trujillo will guest on his next solo album.

“Rob has always been a great friend of mine. He’s a great bass player and a great guy; he’s the only guy who, when it came time to move, did things the right way,” Osbourne says in the December issue of Metal Hammer. “I always ask that the guys who play with me, if they get another offer and want to move on, that’s fine, just don’t drop me in the shit, give me time to get a replacement. Rob’s the only guy who ever did things right by me for that. I’m really happy we’ve got him playing on the new album as well.”

Osbourne’s follow-up to his 2020 release Ordinary Man will also feature appearances by some top-shelf guitarists including Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi, and Zakk Wylde. The album will be once again produced by Andrew Watt.

Trujillo joined Osbourne’s band in the late 1990s and was featured on the album Down To Earth as well as Live at Budokan. Check out this clip from the latter with the bassist laying it down on “Believer”:
