Ozzy Osbourne wins pair of Grammy Awards for Patient Number 9 album

Ozzy Osbourne won a pair of Grammy Awards for his latest album, “Patient Number 9”, during the 2023 edition of the annual event on February 5 in Los Angeles.

The project was honored as “Best Rock Album” ahead of releases by The Black Keys, Elvis Costello & The Imposters, Idles, Machine Gun Kelly, and Spoon, and the rocker took home the prize for “Best Metal Performance” for the track “Degradation Rules”, which features his Black Sabbath bandmate Tony Iommi on guitar.

Producer/guitarist Andrew Watt and bassist Robert Trujillo accepted the 2023 awards on Ozzy's behalf.

Osbourne’s thirteenth album was nominated for four awards, but the record was bested by other projects in the “Best Rock Performance” and “Best Rock Song” categories.

“Patient Number 9” sees Osbourne working with a core lineup of Watt, Trujillo, Zakk Wylde and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, and guests including Iommi, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Duff McKagan of Guns N’ Roses, Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready, Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters, and Chris Chaney of Jane’s Addiction.

“Patient Number 9” earned Ozzy a top 3 album debut in the US and a No. 2 entry in his native UK to deliver his highest-charting solo record in his home region; the set also topped the Official Vinyl Albums Chart and Top 10 chart entries in more than a dozen other countries.

This past week, Ozzy announced that he has retired from touring due to a number of ongoing health issues.
