Let's see: you're a rock star, stumbling around an unfamiliar city while wearing your girlfriend/manager's dress. You feel the call of nature and, not knowing where the nearest gas station or hotel is, relieving yourself on a nearby statue seems like a good idea in your drunken state. But in the middle of the afternoon, with all sorts of people around, it's a good way to get yourself in trouble, and that's what famously happened to Ozzy Osbourne in San Antonio, Texas on Feb. 19, 1982.
What would Ozzy Osbourne's amazing solo career be without the many guitar heroes who have stood beside him for the past 30-plus years? Not much, unless he had his sights on playing music other than hard rock and metal, which is why we decided to pay some respect to the 10 six-string gods who exerted the greatest impact on Ozzy's career.
Guitarist Jake E. Lee began his career as a member of Mickey Ratt, who became better known as Ratt after a name change in the early '80s. He then moved on to Rough Cutt, a band producer by Ronnie James Dio.
These words (or others along these lines) have frequently echoed across the annals of rock and roll history, but rarely louder than on the occasion when heavy metal wildman, Ozzy Osbourne, decided that jumping behind the wheel of an all-terrain-vehicle seemed like a good idea.
Randy Rhoads was quite simply one of the most groundbreaking guitarists the rock idiom has ever known. His mother was a music teacher, and young Randy received a proper musical education before turning that knowledge to his own purposes within the framework of heavy rock.
Black Sabbath singer Ozzy Osbourne has unleashed a strong social media attack on his brother-in-law "in name only" David Ardin, accusing his wife Sharon's brother of selling false stories about him and his family.
Between his solo career, Black Sabbath commitments and whatever a Prince of Darkness's other duties might be, Ozzy Osbourne is a very busy man. But he always has a few minutes to spare for his son Jack.
Ozzy Osbourne’s lofty career achievements and shocking controversial episodes were known to almost anyone who loved and kept up on music throughout the '80s, so when the notorious singer announced he intended to retire from rock and roll on November 15, 1992, people listened!
