Fingers Crossed!

So I am sure you rmemeber that early this year it was all over the news that Ozzy had fallen off the wagon.
Well Sharon (a much of a slave driver she is) stuck to her guns and took off.
At the time it struck me as being a little harsh but lets face it... Ozzy has been through a lot and put the family through a lot because of his "problems"!

Just found this on TMZ a few minutes ago!

Check it out!



Ozzy Osbourne is officially out of Sharon's dog house ... and has moved back in with his wife ... after convincing Sharon he's been drug and alcohol free for months, TMZ has learned. 

It's a big step for the couple, considering they split earlier this year ... when Ozzy fell off the wagon. 

Sharon insisted she wouldn't take Ozzy back until he cleaned himself up -- and to prove she meant business, she moved out of the family home and into the Beverly Hills Hotel. 

But now, it seems Sharon's convinced Ozzy's winning the war with his demons ... because the two not only walked the red carpet together at the Daytime Emmys on Sunday (and shared a kiss) ... they also went home together after the show. 

We're told Sharon is determined to help Ozzy stay off the junk -- she's even hired a "sober team" to monitor the rock star 24/7 and help him steer clear of potential hazards.

  NIKKI SIXX Mourning Death Of His Mother - June 10, 2013
MÖTLEY CRÜE and SIXX: A.M. bassist Nikki Sixx is mourning the death of his mother. Deana Richards passed away on Saturday, June 8 at the age of 74. Sixx revealed the news in a tweet that read, "RIP Mom 5-5 1939 to 6-8 2013."

Nikki Sixx was a major drug abuser during much of MÖTLEY CRÜE's first decade, and was once even declared dead for two minutes after overdosing on heroin. Since getting sober, however, Sixx has continued to record and tour, written a book, taken up photography and become president of a record label. He told The Pulse of Radio that sometimes he can't believe his current lifestyle. "It's insane," he said. "It's insane. And you know what? If you manage it well, you can achieve so much on the planet, more than what I used to be able to achieve, which was, 'Let me write ten songs, record an album and go on tour.' That's it. That's all I did. That's like, ridiculous. If all I had to do was make a MÖTLEY CRÜE album and tour, I'd feel like I was gonna slit my wrists, I'd be so bored now."

Sixx's real name is Frank Carlton Serafina Feranna. He was born in San Jose and raised by his mother and grandparents after his father left the family.

After moving around several times, he struck out for Los Angeles on his own at the age of 17, first joining the band London before forming MÖTLEY CRÜE in 1981 with drummer Tommy Lee.

The band released its debut album, "Too Fast For Love", in 1982, and scored its commercial breakthrough in 1983 with "Shout at the Devil".

Despite other hit albums such as "Girls, Girls, Girls" and "Dr. Feelgood", the CRÜE went through a period of uncertainty in the '90s, with both singer Vince Neil and Lee leaving the group at different times.

The original band reunited in 2004 for a hugely successful world tour, at which point Sixx officially declared himself sober.

His darkest drug period was chronicled in a 2007 memoir, "The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star", and the accompanying album by his side project SIXX: A.M.

Sixx has been married twice, to Playboy Playmate Brandi Brandt and actress Donna D'Errico, and has five children. He is currently engaged to model Courtney Bingham.

Corey Taylor's "Beacon Moment".


We all put our faith in something. Be it a higher power, humanity, government, or family, we tether ourselves to a source of security to help keep our head above water when we pass through the storms of life. But when the waters rage and the vessel you've put your faith in is broken against the rocks you're left at a crossroads: go down with the ship, or take hold of a new hope. Ironically, it was the band Faith No More that restored Corey Taylor's faith in himself and gave him hope for his future. 

In his incredibly sobering Beacon Moment Corey gives a rare glimpse into his past. He shares the story of his darkest hour and how that darkness was overcome by the power of music.

The Beacon Moment is an experience or series of events that changes the course of a person's life - toward a life devoted to music. Each week a different artist tells the story of their Beacon Moment, allowing them to connect with their fans by opening up and sharing one of the most important moments in their life.

New Music Tuesday (6/11)

This week's list of new music covers one of the broadest spectrums of "Rock" I've ever seen, thus making it one of the most enjoyable list of new music I've ever seen…
As EVERYONE knows BLACK SABBATH is back with "13". This time they're without Bill Ward on skins replaced by Brad Wilk of RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE. The details of this decision are a contract dispute combined with old age and a rough ability to get the job done. It's their 19th studio album and their first studio recording with Ozzy & Geezer together since they put out the live "Reunion" album in 1998. Produced by Rick Rubin, we'll see if he's able to capture what made them SABBATH back in 1970 with the classic albums of "Black Sabbath" and "Paranoid".
Speaking of iconic - legendary bands ZZ TOP "The Complete Studio Albums 1970-1990" is unloaded to the world today. This 10 disc box set from Warner Bros. features original mixes off their first 10 albums! 
And if we're keeping tabs on bands that seem like they've been around forever, I'd be remised if I didn't mention, the Goo Goo Dolls are back with their 10th studio album "Magnetic". Say what you want, but these guys were initially signed by METAL BLADE, that's gotta count for something - right? Side Note: They're playing KC on Friday the 12th of July at the Sprint Center with MATCHBOX 20…. some of you are excited by this, aren't you? :) 
Let's switch gears and add some balls & spit to this blog, NYHC's AGNOSTIC FRONT has "To Be Continued: The Best of Agnostic Front" dropping today. The blog ALL MUSIC isn't a fan of how the track listing doesn't follow in the "obvious chronological order route". They do state, however, "it offers a nearly complete retrospective of Agnostic Front's career". So do with it as you see fit, I'm pretty sure I'm gonna pick it up.
Titans of the Death Metal genre; THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER and CHILDREN OF BODOM are back. BLACK DAHLIA with "Everblack" and BODOM with "Halo of Blood". 
If you're a fan of WOLFMOTHER, rather, ANDREW STOCKTON you'll wanna check out his debut album "Keep Moving". Initially intended to be released under WOLFMOTHER but after numerous line-up changes and a year of recording STOCKTON dropped the band name and decided to continue on under his own name. He, and his merry band of pranksters, will be at the Riot Room on Friday, August 16th. 
Some comedy to close our your new music blog; THE LONELY ISLAND (Andy Samburg - "Dick in a Box" with Justin Timberlake/ "Hot Rod" the movie - with Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone) put out their 3rd studio album with "The Wack Album". Clearly, their talent is recognized as there's special appearances by JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, LADY GAGA, TOO $HORT, HUGH JACKMAN, KRISTIN WIIG and more! Judging by song titles like "I Run NY" featuring Billie Joe ARMSTRONG of GREEN DAY and an interlude song titled "Where Brooklyn At" you've gotta wonder if they're not trying to carry the torch of the BEASTIE BOYS. 

Here's what's coming up! 

AEROSMITH “Rock for the Rising Sun” DVD July 22nd
FIGHT or FLIGHT (Dan & Mike of Disturbed) “A Life By Design” July 23rd
