Crazy Babies Ozzy Rebourne
Formed in 2015, Crazy Babies has since built a solid reputation across the country as the premier Ozzy tribute act with a setlist that features Ozzy's solo material as well as popular classics from the Black Sabbath era. You may have caught the band years ago when they performed in Flint at The Machine Shop.
I recently talked talked with singer Boyd 'Ozzy' Quinton about their experience on the show.
How did you get picked to be on Clash of the Cover Bands?
I don't know if Jimmy Fallon's people just went online and found us and watched our videos and thought, these guys are pretty dang close to Ozzy. I'm not really sure how that process happened but I think they found us online.
What's it like performing with Adam Lambert watching and juding your every move?
Just like Ozzy, when I do a show live, I really connect with the audience and draw everybody in. But there it's different, it didn't bother me at all that there were stars in front of me like Adam Lambert and Meghan Trainor, it didn't distract me or change my performance at all. However, I did wonder if the crowd was really into it or were they being told to clap or whatever. It's a little different being in a studio like that compared to an audience that came there to see you.
We'll have more from the band after their episode airs next week.
