Ozzy Osborne has balanced out the sad news that he must retire from the road with a pair of Grammy wins last night. 

The 74-year-old Black Sabbath frontman took home the golden gramophone for Best Rock Album for his excellent 2022 LP Patient Number 9. As with its predecessor Ordinary Man, the album was produced by Andrew Watt and features a killer guest list that includes the late Jeff Beck, Taylor Hawkins, longtime Ozzy axeman Zakk Wylde, Duff McKagan, James Poyser, Robert Trujillo and even the craptastic Eric Clapton. 

Among the albums Ozzy beat out include titles from the Black Keys (Dropout Boogie), Elvis Costello & The Imposters (The Boy Named If), Idles (Crawler), Machine Gun Kelly (Mainstream Sellout) and Spoon (Lucifer on the Sofa).

Additionally, Patient Number 9’s “Degradation Rules,” featuring his Sabbath brother Tony Iommi on guitar, took home the trophy for Best Metal Performance.

“I’m one lucky motherfu**er to have won the ‘Best Rock Album’ Grammy,” Osbourne said in a statement. “I was blessed to work with some of the greatest musicians in the world and Andrew Watt as my producer on this album. Winning the ‘Best Metal Performance’ was equally gratifying being that the song featured my longtime friend and Black Sabbath bandmate, Tony Iommi.”

Big congrats to the Prince of Darkness!
