"It's like putting on an old glove. It's fantastic."

And here's what Ozzy Osbourne himself had to say about it:

"It's just time. This time, for some magical reason, we have written about seven or eight songs."

Ozzy Osbourne Wrecked Hotel Room With Dead Shark

Filed under: Music MinuteOzzy OsbourneSharkCrazzzzy

Tony Iommi, the former guitarist for Ozzy's old band, Black Sabbath, has released his memoirs.

In it, he describes that at the height of their partying and rocking out, the drugs just didn't cut it anymore.

He said:

"With drugs always you get bored, so you must do something to one another. Like Ozzy hauling a shark through a window, dismembering it and soaking our room in blood."

Gross.

The guitarist goes on to talk about his how his own life was affected by all the drugs and rock and roll, saying:

"We had management problems, I married four times. Was a lousy husband. I suddenly didn't feel good, so I stopped drugs. No rehab.

I'm a country squire, I live on a farm with dogs and chickens. All I want is to work. I'm dedicated to working. Listen, I've set up equipment inside an enormous dungeon in a huge castle in Wales. And worked. I felt creative."

He still talks with Ozzy pretty regularly, saying:

"I talk to Ozzy couple times a week. He's up, down. I love him, although his attention span lasts three seconds."

Sure sounds like the Oz man to us. Good thing he stopped all that gross "animal business" (remember the bat?) back in the 80s.

We forgive you.

Wanna Live Like An Osbourne??

Osbourne Malibu House Up For Sale

Of course you do!

Well you're in luck, because the Osbournes are putting their Malibu home up for sale! For the low, low price of $10 Million dollars, the 4,500 square-foot, five bedroom, five bathroom ocean view home can be all yours and you can go ahead and hang up that Black Sabbath poster anywhere you want!

Here's what it offers:

The house boasts two balconies with a ground floor veranda, hardwood floors, a spacious kitchen with stainless steel appliances, floor to ceiling windows – and something almost unheard of in Malibu, a backyard!

A back yard?? That's worth the price tag alone! Who cares if it has incredible views of the ocean??

The home is also part of a gated community, and if you wanted to you could rent it out for $40,000 a month like they did in 2010!

Hope you find buyers, Osbournes!

Jack Osbourne To Make Horror Movie Inspired By Black Sabbath

Filed under: Film FlickersOzzy Osbourne

He's becoming quite the filmmaker!

With the recent release of his concert documentary God Bless Ozzy Osbourne, looks like Jack Osbourne has found his true calling.

The budding filmmaker is developing a horror film inspired by his dad Ozzy's band, Black Sabbath.

Co-producer on the film, Marc Weingarten says:

"Jack and I are about to do a horror movie called Black Sabbath so there's some connective tissue there. Just the music of Black Sabbath is in the movie, but it's not about the band. We'll start shooting by the end of the year."

Interesting… Black Sabbath seems like an excellent inspiration to make some horror. Can we expect an Ozzy cameo??

iTunes Holdouts!

kid-rock-acdc-and-garth-brooks-refuse-to-put-music-on-itunes

Now that The Beatles' music is now available to download on iTunes, there aren't too many acts left that haven't agreed to put their tunes out onto the digital marketplace!

But three have stood firm in their refusal, and apparently, here's why:

AC/DC

Frontman Brian Johnson explains:

"Maybe I’m just being old-fashioned, but this iTunes, God bless ‘em, it’s going to kill music if they’re not careful … It’s a…monster, this thing. It just worries me. And I’m sure they’re just doing it all in the interest of making as much…cash as possible. Let’s put it this way, it’s certainly not for the…love, let’s get that out of the way, right away."

Garth Brooks

He says:

"These [Apple] guys are sweet guys, but they’re businessmen, so they understand. … They truly think that they’re saving music. My hat’s off to them. I looked at them right across the table with all the love in the world and told them they were killing it. And until we get variable pricing, until we get album-only [downloads], then they are not a true retailer for my stuff, and you won’t see my stuff on there—with all the love in the world. That’s nothing that they haven’t heard, either."

Kid Rock

He says:

"I just don’t like being told what to do. I don’t have a beef with Apple, or iTunes, or any of them. I do have a beef with that it seems kind of socialist of them to charge the same price for every song. What if every car cost $4,000, you know what I mean? A song from my neighbor’s garage band is not the same value as Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Born to Run.’ I just want to decide how my product gets sold with the people who sell it."

Wow - we have to admit, although we don't agree, these guys make much better points than we expected them to!

Other artists currently unavailable for download include The Smiths, Tool, Def Leppard, Bob Seger, Black Sabbath, and Frank Zappa.

And it's their right as musicians to decide how their music is sold, so more power to them!

What do U think?? Do U agree with anything any of these guys have said??
