Ozzy Osbourne recalls former Prime Minister's musical woes
Tony Blair has admitted he could never master Black Sabbath on guitar.
The former Prime Minister, who was in a band at university called Ugly Rumours, confessed to frontman Ozzy Osbourne that he could never get the band’s track ‘Iron Man’ right.
“I met Tony Blair a couple of years ago, and he said to me, ‘I was in a band once, and I could never get the riff to ‘Iron Man’ right,'” recalled Osbourne. “I thought, ‘Why are you telling me about ‘Iron Man’ when there’s a war going on?'”
Osbourne made the comments while DJing for Radio 1 as part of the station’s 40th birthday celebrations. His show airs tonight (September 27) at 9pm.
