When Ozzy Osbourne appeared in the video for Yungblud‘s new single “The Funeral,” not only did the young rocker get to work with a metal legend, he also got some advice from the Prince of Darkness.

“He said that he saw a lot of himself in me,” Yungblud tells NME of his conversations with Ozzy. “He said, ‘Never apologize for anything. They will understand you later. Time always tells.'”

Yungblud says during the video shoot he got to see a different side of Ozzy than how he’s perceived by the public.

“People think [Ozzy] is kind of … gone, but he’s not,” Yungblud shares. “He’s so intelligent and so f***ing beautiful. People are scared of him until they hear him speak.”

Ozzy, by the way, isn’t the only classic rocker who is a Yungblud fan. The “Fleabag” artist has also earned admirers in Mick Jagger and Roger Daltrey.

“The Funeral” will appear on Yungblud’s upcoming self-titled album, due out September 2.
