Ozzy Osbourne is no doubt a heavy metal legend. Would metal have gotten where it is today without him and Black Sabbath? It’s hard to say, but without his influence, we might be looking at an entirely different landscape. Not many people can hold down a career of a magnitude of Ozzy’s after over 40 years, and the fact that he’s still out there touring is commendable. Regardless of what you think of Ozzy’s later material, the fact that the dude’s still performing heavy metal/hard rock and touring even into his 60s really shows his dedication. Surely, he could have retired by now if he didn’t care.
Because of this, we’re excited to be giving away a pair of tickets to the February 3rd stop in San Jose, CA at the HP Pavilion for Ozzy’s 2011 tour. All you have to do is email mail(at)heavyblogisheavy.com with the headline “Ozzy” telling us what your favorite Ozzy Osbourne related song (either solo or with Sabbath) is and why. We will select our favorite entry to get two tickets to the show!
