Added this week to the largest online press cutting and articles collection, two full articles from different eras. In January 2002 Revolver mag caught up with Ozzy and Zombie on the Merry Mayhem tour. They answer the same questions and prove they are real Monsters of Rock.
I also got and scanned an interview published in the Sun entertainement mag “something for the weekend” back in December last year (2013). Ozzy is quizzed about the Black Sabbath reunion, Tony Iommy battle with cancer, and how does it feels to come from “rags to riches”.
If you have any article not yet in the collection contact me
Just returned from holidays in my homeland. In digging up cardborard boxes in the attic, I found some items from my early days of collecting Ozzy records and videos. Some are pretty rare those days: I dig up a not for sale stamped Bark at the Moon 12″ and other picture discs; Three bootleg LP with Paranoid, a concert from 1982 pressed in Japan, Cry wolf from the BatM Euro tour and the “famous” Bat Head Soup white label LP. I also found some bootleg CDs pressed in the 90s: LA Madness and All aboard pressed in Italy by Metal Memory.
Ozzy Osbourne headlined the Hyundai Card Citybreak music festival in Seoul, South Korea earlier tonight. The two-day event, which is being held August 9-10 at Seoul World Cup Stadium, also includes performances by the alternative rock band HOOBASTANK, former BON JOVI guitarist Richie Sambora, Japanese signature rock band LOCOFRANK, groove metal band COCOBAT and local punk rock band YELLOW MONSTERS.
While it remains unclear whether BLACK SABBATH will record another studio album, Osbourne appears certain to continue with his solo career. Ozzy’s touring guitarist, Gus G., told Noisefull in a recent interview, “Ozzy wants to do another solo album, that’s for sure. As far as I know, he has a contract for three more solo albums, so I don’t know when he will finish them, if he’ll do them and if I’m going to be a part in it, but I certainly know that he wants to do one more solo album.”
Band featured also Adam Wakeman, Blasco, Tommy Clufitos.
Setlist featured classic tracks played during the Scream world tour enhance with the rarely played “fire in the sky”:
a little while back I recieved a big pack of clipping and articles from Australia…… You can find them all in the Newsdesk section of this site
Ozzy was interviewed a few days prior the Black Sabbath Time in Hyde Park. He talks about his demon Alcohol, and consequently being a bad father; finally and how incomprehensible he is still alive.
The article was recently added to the Newsdesk section of the website. I am still seeking for contributors: so If you have an article, in any language, please contact me.
There will be 5 variations of the Memoirs of a Madman…..
An email blast was sent to subscribers today giving a bit more details about different format / packages:
