Look, there are a lot of incredible singers in the history of rock music – Sammy Hagar, Robert Plant, Ronnie James Dio, Steve Perry, Bruce Dickinson, Maynard James Keenan, Freddie Mercury, and countless others. However, there is only one Prince Of Darkness. That’s right. Ozzy is one of a kind.

He’s a goofy character for sure, but he’s also written and performed some of the most famous and powerful rock anthems of all time. I don’t think that I’ve ever met anyone who didn’t love Ozzy, and quite frankly I don’t want to. I don’t think we could be friends.

He is currently out on his "No More Tours" tour and recently came down with a rather serious respiratory infection - so serious in fact that he has had to cancel the next 16 dates of his tour. That's quite a few shows.

No doubt, there are a lot of disappointed fans around the world right now, but Minnesotans should be happy. He should be back to good health by the time he plays the Xcel Energy Center on July 6th. According to his website, the show is still on.
