Ozzy Osbourne 'Down To Earth' To Debut High On Charts

Ozzy Osbourne may be the madman of rock and roll, but he’s also one or the hardest working men in music-and it just may have paid off. His string of in-store appearances and countless TV and radio appearances will help propel his latest album, Down To Earth, into the upper regions of the Billboard 200 album chart.

“The reaction from the new album, Down To Earth, is blowing everybody away,” Osbourne said. “I knew it was a good album, but I thought six years is a long time are they still going to be into it? And it’s like wilder than ever. People are comparing this to like, No More Tears, which is great.”

Ozzy’s biggest competition for the top spot is the latest album from Enya, according to various music trade magazine insiders.

Meanwhile, Ozzy Osbourne’s new song “Gets Me Through,” has been added to the playlist of alternative kingpin KROQ in Los Angeles.

Osbourne is scheduled for final rehearsals this week for the Merry Mayhem/Ozz Bless America tour, which kicks off in Tucson, Arizona on Halloween (October 31). Special guests on the tour include Rob Zombie and Mudvayne.
