Ozzy Osbourne

The folks at Rolling Stone checked in with one of metal's founding fathers, Ozzy Osbourne, to give his personal 10 favorite metal albums of all time. Who better to ask than Ozzy, right? 

Osbourne's choices include Guns N' Roses' Appetite for Destruction, Led Zeppelin's Led Zeppelin IV, and Highway to Hell, to name a few.

Osbourne says Appetite for Destruction is "one of the greatest debut albums of all time." He also asserts, "There's not a weak song in the bunch. I never get tired of hearing it."

On Led Zeppelin IV, Osbourne says that Zeppelin has been a longtime favorite for him, explaining, "All of their studio albums are classics but this is one of my all-time favorites."

Regarding AC/DC, Ozzy says, "I love Brian Johnson but to me my good friend, the late Bon Scott, was the best singer AC/DC ever had. This album was like an addiction to me."

Rolling Stone recently posted their list of "The 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time," and Black Sabbath's Paranoid was  No. 1.
