Ozzy Osbourne review and set list

Let’s start with the obvious. Ozzy Osbourne has seen better days. And after decades of ingesting enough booze and contraband to kill most of us, you never know which version of the rock legend will show up in concert.

Will it be the guy who’s had trouble finishing tours in recent years; the one that melted down and shuffled offstage after his voice blew out midway through Black Sabbath’s set in Auburn a few years back? Or will it be some semblance of the Prince of (bleeping) Darkness, the lovable madman that got this metal train rolling more than

Ozzy vs. Slash

Warning: Do not approach these men if you see them. Her, a different story (AP photo/Joel Ryan)

Listen up, people! It’s time to hide your daughters, the contents of your medicine cabinets and any small animals that may be in your care.

Live Nation and Ticketmaster will start selling tickets at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 16. The price range is $29.50 to

Grammys: Score one for Taylor Swift

The Grammy arms race is on. Eight-time nominee Taylor Swift scores the second Grammy for best country album for “Fearless.” (Still no Kanye.)

The reigning Queen of Pop, Beyonce, looks stunning as she makes her entrance with a gang of storm troopers. She slays with her mash-up of “If I Were a Boy” and Alanis Morisette’s “You Oughta Know.” I think she did that at KeyArena last Spring. I’ll have to double check that set list.

But did I just hear a promo for T-Pain performing with Slash before the commercial break? What? Just when I thought the Grammys
