While his Black Sabbath bandmates Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler are preparing to release their first album as Heaven & Hell, Ozzy Osbourne is in the studio working on the follow-up to Black Rain, which was a pretty cool album. He's announced that he isn't going to tour until the new album is out (probably in November), so he's not doing any concerts until then. Which means no Ozzfest this summer.  Weird decision: the Ozzfest could go on without Ozzy, it's such a strong brand name at this point. But I wonder if, after Metallica played last summer, they felt that there was nowhere to go but down after that. But anyway, the Osbournes are also working on their variety show, so maybe Sharon didn't want to deal with organizing the festival.
