In the lastest issue of Kerrang! Ozzy Talks about the songs that saved his life. Lots of Classic Rock and the Beatles.
In this week issue of Kerrang, Ozzy tells us all about the songs that saved his life. Scan coming up soon.
Ozzy is on the front page of next month Metal Hammer Germany. There is a feature about 30 unforgetable concerts… One of them is Black Sabbath. If you have a copy of this mag: scan the feature and upload it here.
In the Letter box this saturday: No rest for the Wicked concert program from the Japan. I have suspected for a long time that there was a Japanese version of the NRftW tour program. I found it 3 weeks ago!! It is similar than the one sold during euro and North American leg of the tour. but obviously translated in japanese. I love the way the Japanese colelctors keep their items: the program is almost 15 years over old but in mint condition.
Also arrived on the very same day a copy of a Music newspaper from Portugal called Blitz. This issue is from 1995. There is a 2 pages exclusive interview in portuguese. The most interresting thing is the front cover which is an artistic hack of an official photo.
Both will be added to respective section of the website.

The band will be joined by Soundgarden, Faith No More, Motörhead, Soulfly, Gallows, Blitz Kids, Rise To Remain, The Bots and more on Friday 4 July.
Ozzy explains: “The first time I came to London I didn’t have a pot to piss in and I spent the advance I got for the first album on a new pair of shoes and some Brut aftershave. Returning almost 50 years on, we are doing a it better for ourselves so I may even splash out on some new aftershave before taking to the stage at Hyde Park, the most beautiful park in London that has opened its gates to so many legends in the past. We are beyond honoured to be allowed to put on a show and hope that the Royals will enjoy it!”
