The members of Black Sabbath may not be the rock miscreants they were in their 20s, but Ozzy Osbourne is fine with that, as it's brought the group back to what initially mattered to them in the first place -- the music. Osbourne spoke with the New Zealand Herald about the differences between the Sabbath of old and what's happening now and how age has brought some perspective.
Ozzy Osbourne's 'Crazy Train' has become one of the great songs in metal history and as such, it's also been one of the most covered tracks in the genre.

The 'Prince of Darkness' himself, Ozzy Osbourne, is one of the most beloved musical figures both in and out of metal music communities. Even before 'The Osbournes' invaded your homes with their landmark celeb-reality show, Ozzy was already a household name, which is why the Black Sabbath vocalist was invited to make a cameo in the 2000 Adam Sandler comedy, 'Little Nicky.'

The 'Screaming For Vengeance' legend is now set to face the 'Bark at the Moon' icon.
The pagans who came up with Halloween deserve to be praised as saints. The world is covered in cobwebs and decorated by maniacal pumpkins, horror films possess every television channel and the forces of evil are finally let loose for once autumn night as children are encouraged to take candy from strangers. Halloween is awesome, and it meshes beautifully with heavy metal; as demonstrated by this suburban light show set to Ozzy Osbourne's 'Bark at the Moon.'
