OZZFEST NEWSLETTER - April 4, 2002
________________________________________________

DOIN' THE OZZFEST SHUFFLE!

Rob Zombie has taken the nod to fill the slot vacated by the
Chris Cornell/Rage Against the Machine band on the Ozzfest main
stage this summer. Zombie maintains, though, that he will
still put on a stripped down show that he has been wanting to
do for a while now. He recently commented in the Los Angeles
Times about the his decision: "As much as I love the big show
and all the production, it becomes this huge thing of its own.
Sometimes the show is so huge everything else gets lost...I
haven't done anything like [this] in 12 years or something."
Taking Zombie's place in the headlining position on the second
stage will be Down, the New Orleans-based supergroup fronted by
Pantera's Philip Anselmo and also featuring members of
Corrosion of Conformity, EYEHATEGOD, and Crowbar. The band
released their their highly anticipated second album,
"Down II", last week. Hatebreed has also been tapped for the
second stage in the slot preceding Down. Their second
album, "Perseverance", was issued last week as well. And for
the first half of Ozzfest 2002 party rocker Andrew W.K. will
party on the second stage; Switched has been added to the
second half of the tour.
Along with these additions to the bill there are some date
changes as well. The July 10 Jones Beach show has been moved
to Scranton, Pa., and the Indianapolis and Cleveland dates have
flip-flopped: Cleveland is now Aug. 4 and Indianapolis
is Aug. 13.
