OZZY OSBOURNE Interviewed On WGRD 97.9 FM (Audio) - ...

Spud of the Grand Rapids, Michigan radio station WGRD 97.9 FM recently conducted an interview with the legendary heavy metal singer Ozzy Osbourne. <a href="http://wgrd.com/ozzy-osbourne-interview/">You can now listen to the chat at this location: ( http://wgrd.com/ozzy-osbourne-interview/ )</a>

Ozzy had to postpone the final two dates of his current U.S. tour, scheduled for December 10 in St. Louis and December 12 in Minneapolis. The singer was advised by doctors to call off the gigs after contracting an ear infection, with complications that prevent him from performing. The Minneapolis date has been moved to January 12 and St. Louis has been changed to January 14. All tickets from the postponed shows will be honored on the new dates.

The Minneapolis show will now kick off the second leg of Ozzy's U.S. trek, which will feature Slash as the opening act.

Even though he has his own health column these days, Ozzy admitted that he doesn't know how he's managed to stay alive after abusing himself for years. "I'm not a f***ing doctor," he said. "I keep saying that. You know, I'm just a very lucky guy that I ain't six foot under shoving daisies up, you know. I'm like the laboratory rat that survives, you know."

Ozzy is touring in support of his latest solo effort, "Scream", which came out earlier this year.

Just love that Ozzy is out there and recording, touring, and living myself. A powerful feeling seeing him, hearing him, all these years after he stole this girls heart at 12.

I am also excited to hear him say he's recognizing he's in a good spot with his band. They are beyond fantastic, and I think he ought to hit the studio with all of them and get it on. I'd really, really, really like to hear what this new band of his has going on inside. Honestly weird to say so, but it's true. I've not thought the focus and energy was there like this for a long, long time. It used to be that way with Zakk until things kind of shifted, priorities perhaps.

I don't knock a new album with Sabbath, I just really like what I am seeing with Gus and Blasko and Adam and Tommy. I think they are gold ~they're bringing it on hard and heavy onstage.
