Ozzy Sort of Ready to Hit the Road
Fashionably outfitted in his best pair of sweatpants and a black T-shirt, a typically fuzzy-headed Ozzy, 54, reportedly slurred his way through the news conference.
Sharon, 50, looking svelte (her cancer is said to be in remission) and acting in charge, meanwhile insulted her husband and their guests.
The news about returning to San Antonio was not music to Ozzy's ears, apparently. (It was noted that he seemed to be hearing the tour itinerary for the first time.) During an infamous drunken stupor in the Texas town in 1982, Ozzy urinated on the historic Alamo.
"I won't be allowed back into (bleeping)-in' town," he mumbled to his guests.
Sharon said her husband will share the main stage with Korn, Marilyn Manson, Disturbed and Chevelle, while a second stage will feature Cradle of Filth, Trust Co. and others.
Last year's Ozzfest, headlined by Osbourne, System of a Down and Rob Zombie, grossed $26.3 million and ranked No. 17 among all tours, Reuters said.
To get in shape for this year's outing, Ozzy, holding court in the family's game room, said he has been working out five times a week. Asked about his legendary alcohol and pill intake, however, the family's publicist cut him short.
