OZZY OSBOURNE: Upcoming Box Set To Include Brand New CD Of Covers

According to a posting at the OZZY OSBOURNE fan site Ozzyhead.com, Osbourne's forthcoming box set will include a brand new CD of covers. Among the tracks set to appear on the album is Ozzy's version of THE BEATLES' "In My Life".

As previously reported, former ALICE IN CHAINS guitarist Jerry Cantrell is expected to make an appearance on the album, as is Chris Wyse, bassist for Cantrell's "jam" band CARDBOARD VAMPYRES. No further information is currently available.

In an interview with the Guitar Center earlier this year, Ozzy spoke about the huge influence THE BEATLES have had on his musical career.

"The biggest break in my life came when THE BEATLES hit," Ozzy explained. "They totally sucked me in and I thought, 'That's my way out, my music.' I used to fantasize, as all kids do, about Paul McCartney marrying my sister and all that crazy stuff. That set me off into music and my first gig ever, at the fire station in my hometown."
