Michael Schenker revealed how he escaped being in Ozzy Osbourne’s band back in 1982.
The guitarist shared the story of how he was invited to join Osbourne’s band, but felt conflicted due to his commitment to his Assault Attack album.
“I was tempted to do it,” Schenker admitted in a video promoting the new Michael Schenker Fest album Revelation. “I said, ‘How can I get away from this?’ And then Cozy was saying, ‘You can’t do this – we’re doing Assault Attack now, we just got Graham Bonnet!’ I thought, ‘I’ll just ask [Osbourne] for the impossible. He’ll maybe say no. And that’s what I did. … I asked for the impossible with the hope that he’d say no, and then I was off the hook.”
