Ozzy: #2 On NY Times Best Sellers List, Schedules In-Stores
February 18, 2010
Take what you thought was "rock and roll excess," double it, and you still would not be anywhere near the dizzying life of Ozzy Osbourne. Born into a life so poor that the entire family slept in one room, music was his salvation, and his band Black Sabbath went on to change the musical landscape forever. The inevitable sex and drugs came along with along with the rock and roll lifestyle, and Ozzy soon fell into an epic relationship with booze and chemicals.

The stories of Ozzy's days on the road are now those of legend - biting the head off of a live bat, the tragic plane crash that took the life of his best friend and writing partner - but few know about the real heartbreak he suffered during those days of hard living. I AM OZZY (Grand Central Publishing Hardcover; $26.99; January 25, 2010) is the heavy metal pioneer's unbelievable story told, for the first time, in Ozzy's hilarious, witty, and inimitable voice. In the end it was love that saved him: the love of his wife Sharon and kids Aimee, Kelly, and Jack.

Ozzfest 2008 Details Announced
May 15, 2008
All eyes and ears will be on Dallas, Texas Saturday, August 9 as Ozzfest, the original and iconic hard rock festival, returns in 2008 as a one-day stadium spectacular that teams Ozzfest founder and namesake Ozzy Osbourne (in his only U.S. concert appearance this summer) with Metallica (marking their Ozzfest debut).

Produced by Sharon Osbourne and AEG Live, the all-day festival at Pizza Hut Park in hard music-loving Dallas will feature three stages of non-stop talent (with many Ozzfest alumni) and reliably twisted Ozzfest side attractions.

The full main stage lineup will also spotlight performances by Serj Tankian (System of a Down), Hellyeah, Jonathan Davis (Korn), Cavalera Conspiracy, Shadows Fall, Apocalyptica and In This Moment. Also scheduled on the main stage is a special all-star tribute to slain Pantera guitarist ‘Dimebag’ Darrell Abbott. Second stage acts include Sevendust, Devildriver, Kingdom of Sorrow, Soilent Green, Witchcraft and Goatwhore. The Texas (third) Stage — “an homage to the many great metal bands that come from Texas,” says Sharon Osbourne--features The Sword, Drowning Pool, Rigor Mortis, The Destro, and Within Chaos.

Ozzy just finished an 11-month world tour so I think he deserves a summer off,” Sharon says about this year’s one-day Ozzfest. “We’re going to be a stadium destination festival for now--we have gone past doing the sheds every summer. We’ve given everyone else the blueprint and we have to keep evolving Ozzfest. This is just the beginning; AEG Live and I have a lot of new ideas for Ozzfest.”

This year’s dynamic line-up encompasses artists who’ve played Ozzfest before in different incarnations such as Serj Tankian (System of a Down); Jonathan Davis (Korn); Hellyeah’s Vinnie Paul (Pantera) and Chad Gray (Mudvayne); Kingdom of Sorrow’s Jamie Jasta (Hatebreed) and Kirk Windstein (Down); and Max Cavalera (Soulfly, Sepultura) of Cavalera Conspiracy. Other Ozzfest graduates include Shadows Fall, Sevendust, Devildriver, Drowning Pool and In This Moment.

Ozzy has great relationships with all of the bands that have played Ozzfest,” says Sharon. “We’re the only real festival for harder edge bands and these artists have been very loyal to us--there is lots of love on this line-up.”

Tickets for this year’s Ozzfest will go on sale Saturday, May 31. For up-to-the-minute details go to www.Ozzfest.com.
