As Predicted, Ozzy Osbourne Balks At Bill Ward

Before the rift

I called this one. Ozzy Osbourne is not about to offer a public apology to Bill Ward. Instead, he’s thrown salt, lemon juice, and gasoline on the wound by issuing a statement that further calls the Black Sabbath drummer’s abilities into question.

Ozzy Osbourne Comic Now Available

The Ozzy comic book

I’ve often wondered what Ozzy Osbourne’s super-hero power would be, if he were ever to inspire a comic book. If the comic were to mirror his real life in any way, I’d assume Ozzy’s super-hero self would have to have regenerative powers, like Wolverine. I mean, he probably has them already.

Venom

In a new interview, Venom frontman Conrad “Cronos” Lant said that music these days is pretty piss poor, and he has little hope for the future. “It’s always amazed me why other bands want to sound like another band.
