FRESH OZZY VIDEO “LET IT DIE.” M3 ROCK FEST W/ WHITESNAKE, TESLA, LITA AND 15 OTHER BANGERS, LOUDNESS TOURING U.S. SOON!
“Let It Die”, the new video from OZZY OSBOURNE, can be viewed below. The clip starts with Ozzy and his band recording the song in the studio and then jumps straight into an amazing live concert performance with insane fan footage.
“Let It Die” comes off Osbourne‘s latest album, “Scream”, which was re-released last October as an expanded two-CD version via Epic Records. This “Tour Edition” package features seven bonus songs: previously unreleased tracks and live recordings. Three of the songs — “One More Time” and “Jump The Moon”, plus the never-before-released “Hand of The Enemy” — are from the “Scream” sessions. The other four songs are live tracks — “Bark at the Moon”, “Let Me Hear You Scream” and “No More Tears”, as well as the BLACK SABBATH nugget “Fairies Wear Boots” — that were recorded last year in Folkestone and Birmingham in the U.K. The package also contains video content, including the Jonas Åkerlund-directed video for “Let Me Hear You Scream” and behind-the-scenes footage from the set of the video, along with footage documenting the making of the “Scream” album. Epic also issued a four-sided vinyl edition that includes five bonus tracks: the three aforementioned songs from the “Scream” sessions and the live version of “Let Me Hear You Scream”, along with the single version of “Life Won’t Wait” (the second single from “Scream”).
Ozzy Osbourne‘s 2011 dates include a special homage to his beloved friend and collaborator Randy Rhoads with nightly drawings whereby two VIP attendees will win a bottle of D’Argenzio Winery‘s 2005 Randy Rhoads Cabernet Sauvignon (Sonoma County). The wine was produced as a special tribute to Randy by his sister, Kathy Rhoads D’Argenzio. In addition, Ozzy‘s February 1 show in Los Angeles will feature a one-time Randy Rhoads VIP Wine Room open to those purchasing VIP packages to the show. Members of Rhoads‘ family will be on hand for the celebration, featuring a special space highlighted with Rhoads‘ photos and videos. This added VIP feature coincides with the debut of the highly anticipated Randy Rhoads Gibson Les Paul guitar. This one-of-a-kind RR VOS Les Paul will have a custom engraved brass plate on the back of the guitar with a special dedication from the Rhoads family. Proceeds from both the guitar and wine will be donated to the Randy Rhoads Charitable Trust fund.
To purchase the special limited release of the 2005 Randy Rhoads Cabernet Sauvignon, go to www.dargenziowine.com.
