Ozzy Osbourne revealed that Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page blew off a request to appear on his upcoming album, Patient Number 9. Osbourne was successful in getting the two other Yardbirds guitar legends — Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck — to appear on the set.
During a chat with Metal Hammer, Ozzy spoke about not being able to snag Page for a contribution: “I don’t even know if he plays any more, but I thought getting Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page meant having the greatest guitarists on the planet. But I never heard from him. Maybe he’d lost his phone or something!”
