With the outrageous success of MTV’s The Osbournes, it seems everyone has Ozzy Osbourne fever these days. On Wednesday (April 17) night at New York’s Beacon Theater, Kid Rock popped onstage with Gov’t Mule to perform “Sweet Leaf” and “War Pigs” by Black Sabbath, Osbourne’s former band, as well as Marshall Tucker Band’s “Can’t You See.”
According to a source at the show, Kid Rock – recently engaged to Pamela Anderson (allstar, Miss Truth, April 15) – left midway through “War Pigs” because he didn’t know the words.
The string of dates that Gov’t Mule is currently on features former Metallica bassist/current Echobrain leader Jason Newsted and Black Crowes’ guitarist Audley Freed.
Speaking of the Osbourne clan, the family’s black Pomeranian Pippi is missing, and the family is offering a $500 reward for the dog.
