At a SiriusXM listening party last year to celebrate the release of Ordinary Man (Epic Records / Sony Music Australia) Ozzy Osbourne recounted the song’s inspiration.
While recording Black Sabbath’s VOL. 4 in Bel Air, California, Osbourne triggered the home’s security alarm and police surrounded the home, which he says had “piles of marijuana and cocaine.” Ozzy adds, “I’m shouting, ‘IT’S A FUCKIN’ RAIIIIID,” before hiding the drugs and ingesting cocaine while hiding in one of the home’s bathrooms.”
In the video, directed by Tomas Lenert, Ozzy and Post Malone team up for a truly wild ride. The clip begins with Osbourne and Malone at the infamous Bel Air, CA house (which served as the inspiration for the song) before they lead police through the streets of the city and passing iconic Los Angeles landmarks on their journey.
