Today (March 19) marks the 32nd anniversary of the death of Ozzy Osbourne guitar great Randy Rhoads and his onetime bandmate, Bob Daisley, has offered up his own special tribute online. Daisley has posted a Q&A about the seven hours of audio tapes that he recorded during the writing and recording sessions for the 'Blizzard of Ozz' and 'Diary of a Madman' albums. On top of that, he's also shared some previously unheard studio snippets from those recordings.
The Osbournes are spending their time in Los Angeles these days, as the family's U.K. home is currently undergoing some renovations after some significant flood damage.
Legendary Black Sabbath singer Ozzy Osbourne will be honored at the 10th anniversary MusiCares MAP Fund Benefit Concert on May 12. At the special event, Osbourne will receive the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award for the Sabbath singer's commitment to helping individuals who have struggled with addiction.
Just in time to promote Black Label Society's ninth studio album, 'Catacombs of the Black Vatican,' guitar god Zakk Wylde dropped by our studio for an exclusive interview. During our chat with the BLS frontman, he told us a must-hear and hilarious Ozzy Osbourne story unlike any you've heard before.
While one new feud ignited over Grammy weekend between Sharon Osbourne and fellow music manager Jordan Feldstein, some other simmering bad feelings were officially squashed as the Osbournes made nice with pop star Lady Gaga. In fact, the pop star told Ozzy Osbourne that she used to strip to Black Sabbath's music!
Although Black Sabbath singer Ozzy Osbourne has a long history of drug and alcohol abuse, it was still surprising when then vocalist admitted to a relapse earlier this year. Ozzy's relapse almost dissolved his marriage with Sharon Osbourne, Ozzy's wife moving out of the family home at one point. In a new interview, Ozzy speaks about the effects of his slip, admitting he thought that he was going to lose his family.
It's no secret that both Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne have had some issues with Sharon's side of the family. Sharon's father Don Arden, who managed Black Sabbath early in the band's career, was apparently involved in shady business practices for many years. That, along with personal problems, led to an estrangement between Don and Sharon which lasted two decades. The family drama hasn't stopped there, however, as evidenced in personal Facebook posts from Ozzy and Sharon directed at Sharon's brother David Levy.
