Legendary heavy metal singer Ozzy Osbourne has recorded a cover version of John Lennon's "How?" to benefit Amnesty International. The track is being released today (Tuesday, October 5) via iTunes.A video for the song can be viewed below. "How?" was featured on Lennon's second solo album, "Imagine", which came out in 1971. In a 2007 interview, Ozzy Osbourne said that he "couldn't describe" how he felt when he was told THE BEATLES legend had been assassinated. He told Britain's BBC Radio 1 "Legends" show: "The world stopped for me when Sharon told me that John Lennon had been shot in New York. I can't even describe how I felt. If he was a politician, a soldier, anything else, it would be, 'Oh yeah, well he is in that kind of business,' but the amount of joy and hope that he gave people was just remarkable." Ozzy also said he would have loved to see THE BEATLES perform, and thinks they would have reunited if all four members — John Lennon, Ringo Starr, Sir Paul McCartney and the late George Harrison — were still alive. He added, "I often daydream about whether they would ever have reformed. I never saw THE BEATLES, I saw Paul McCartney play but never saw THE BEATLES — I would have loved to have seen them play."
