I love Ozzy Osbourne, he’s so crazy! I loved this interview with Melissa DiMarco where his family and friends explained their favourite parts of the documentary, like when Ozzy bit the head off of a dove. http://youtu.be/Xn-JhOvg4RM

As happy as I thought I was about this venture for the Osbourne's, I feel I must express my extreme anger that you have chose to let go of The Eddie Trunk Show. This to me as a listener for the past 7 years makes me feel extremely unhappy and betrayed. Eddie Trunk quite literally was 75% of the reason I tuned into The Bone Yard. I love the music but I really LOVE The Eddie Trunk show every Monday. I already know about his show going to Hair Nation, which in my opinion sucks. Hair Nation is not as kool as The Bone Yard. I feel wronged. Eddie Trunk has shown the whole Sabbath and Ozzy, Dio etc, clan nothing but honesty and respect, and I feel as a listener that you guys have made an extremely bad decision. My 3 favorite stations are Jam On 29 and Grateful Dead 23 and Bone Yard. Now I'm forced to listen to Hair Nation which like I said earlier is nice but nothing spectacular. Just know I still love classic heavy metal, but will probably not tune is as often. I'm not trying to offend the Osbourne's, I'm just letting them know how I as a longtime Bone Yard listeners feel about the loss of The Eddie Trunk Show. If they would like to make it up to me then I think Ozzy should finally bite the bullet and appear on That Metal Show. Every member of Sabbath from Vinnie, Geezar, Toni, Bill, Dio etc has been on the show.

Also my prayers go out to Iomi and Bill. And don't stop the Sabbath reunion as far as the album is concerned. Dio I still miss and love you. Ozzy you still RULE in my book. And please don't forget about The Ultimate Sin next time you do a show. My favorite album.
