Last week, Ozzy Osbourne began rolling out a new three-part mini-documentary about the making of his newly-released 13th solo album,  Patient Number 9. The first part introduced many of the A-list characters who play on the record and set the scene for its creation, but the second part (out today, September 23rd) is titled "The Sabbath Connection" and focuses on the presence Ozzy's old band has on the record. 

People who played on the album— Metallica's Robert Trujillo, Zakk Wylde, Duff McKagan, producer Andrew Watt — shared their own experiences falling in love with Black Sabbath's music, but the best parts are the interview segments with Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi, who played on two tracks on Patient Number 9.

He talks a bit about the early days of the band, touches on their career, and then zooms up to the present day and opens about his rekindled relationship with Ozzy. Iommi says that they're in contact "virtually every week" now and are on great terms without the obligation of Black Sabbath looming over them.

He also reacted to being told that the song he played on, "Degradation Rules," is about masturbation. "Well, I'm glad I played on that then," he says with a wink.
