Guitarist Michael Schenker Reflects on Almost Teaming Up With Ozzy Osbourne in the 1980s

During a recent interview with Ultimate Classic Rock, guitarist Michael Schenker admitted that Ozzy Osbourne would have been “sorry” if he had accepted the invitation to team up. 

“[When] Ozzy’s offer came up, I almost fell for it,” Schenker recalled. “But I had to, from that moment, figure out how to protect myself from being tempted. And not ending up doing something that I shouldn’t. Which I would regret doing later.”

Schenker also discussed why he decided to leave the Scorpions. “For the same reasons you should not join Ozzy Osbourne, Motorhead, or Deep Purple, or Ian Hunter, or any of those people who asked me. For the same reason because I would have to copy all of the stuff for live shows they had done before. I hate copying.”

Schenker went on to say that he wouldn’t have been the only one disappointed with him teaming up with Ozzy Osbourne. “If I would have joined Ozzy Osbourne, he would have been sorry. Because I did so Amy things. I did acoustic instrumentals, electric instrumentals, covers, you name it. Fifty years later, I did everything I wanted to do out of my system.”

Schenker went on to add that he is now able to relax and focus on the stuff he loves most. “The rock music that I do these days.”
