Here's the deal. It's either Ozzy or Enya at #1 next week in
the Billboard Album Charts. His Royal Highness, King Ozzy
That's what the pundits are predicting: either the Godfather of
Heavy Metal gets his first ever #1 U.S. chart position or it
goes to Enya. Everybody get out before the end of Sunday
(that's when the charts end their week) and patronize your
local record store. Let's give Ozzy the one milestone he's
yet to conquer: #1 Album! Put the ROCK on top of the charts!
If you're thinking of buying this record sometime in the near
future, buy it before Sunday night and help Ozzy lock down #1.
VH-1 FUN NEXT WEEK
VH-1's top-rated Ozzy Behind the Music special just got a little
longer. An additional 30 minutes of footage was shot during and
after Ozzfest and will be added to the original 60 minute special
when the show premieres Oct. 28 at 8:30pm. It will be re-broadcast
the same night at 11pm. Also, VH-1's new show Fan Club will
premiere its Ozzy episode Oct. 29 at 10pm.
"GETS ME THROUGH" ADDED TO KROQ-FM, LOS ANGELES
Notorious trend-setting L.A. radio station "World Famous KROQ"
added the Madman's "Gets Me Through" single this week, a
breakthrough for both Ozzy and the radio station. KROQ, born out
of the 1980's New Wave and college rock boom, ushered in the
"Alternative Rock" craze of the early-to-mid-90's, popularizing
such bands as Nirvana, Sublime, and Red Hot Chili Peppers, and
has, till the last three years, shied away from playing "Hard
Rock" and "Heavy Metal". But Ozzfest changed all that and now
the station is pumping out the jams made popular as a result of
the success of the world's biggest traveling music festival.
Old school Flock of Seagulls fans are probably having seizures
right now driving down the 405 freeway as "Gets Me Through"
sears the airwaves, but f*ck 'em. It's about time we got our
Ozzy on KROQ! Request "Gets Me Through" on KROQ, call 1.800.520.1067.
