Ozzy Coming to Oakland With Rob Zombie in November
Did anyone catch Ozzfest 2007, the most laughable metal tour in America? Was it any good?
More importantly, who is actually going to attend this concet, other than a bunch of douchebags? Either way, Rob Zombie should be headlining and Ozzy should be opening, IMHO. -David Downs

OZZY's latest studio album BLACK RAIN
finds the two-time Grammy Award winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
inductee as vital, creative and evocative as ever. First single "I
Don't Wanna Stop" is OZZY's biggest rock song of his career, spending 20
weeks at #1 on the R&R Rock Chart and peaking at #1 on the R&R Active
Rock chart. The song is also the lead track from EA's Madden NFL '08.
His second single, currently at radio, is the powerful manifesto "Not
Going Away." BLACK RAIN was released in May and entered the Billboard
pop albums chart at #3 with over 150,000 copies sold the first week.
Overall, OZZY has sold over 100 million albums combined as both a member
of Black Sabbath and as a solo artist.
Hot off the heels of the record breaking box office hit Halloween, ROB
ZOMBIE unleashes his first-ever live album ZOMBIE - LIVE (Geffen
Records/UMe) due out on October 23. ZOMBIE - LIVE is a brain-bashing,
soul-shaking sonic earthquake that spans the hard rocker's entire
career. ZOMBIE has sold over fifteen million albums worldwide and is one
of Geffen Record's top selling artists. He has directed dozens of high
profile music videos including OZZY OSBOURNE's "Dreamer" video,
contributed recordings to soundtracks and is known for twisting the
imagination and boundaries of both film and music. In 2005, ZOMBIE
assaulted the film world with the critically-acclaimed, macabre and
twisted masterpiece The Devil's Rejects, the follow-up to his already
cult classic House of 1000 Corpses (2004). As Halloween is well on its
way towards cult status, ZOMBIE once again takes his horror show back on
