“Nothing Feels Right” — so Ozzy Osbourne is retiring from touring. The Black Sabbath frontman announced in a statement posted to social mediaearly Wednesday that a spinal injury four years ago and subsequent surgerieshave made him incapable of traveling. “Never would have imagined that my touring days would have ended this way,” his wrote in his emotional announcement. “I am honestly humbled by the way you’ve all patiently held onto your tickets for all this time, but in all good conscience,” the British rocker continued, “I have now come to the realization that I’m not physically capable of doing my upcoming European/UK tour dates, as I know I couldn’t deal with the travel required.” While Osbourne, 74, acknowledged his “singing voice is fine,” his physical health has taken a toll as he also has been battling Parkinson’s disease since 2019. The “Iron Man” rocker revealed in his statement that has undergone three operations, stem cell treatments, physical therapy and Hybrid Assistive Limb treatment. “My team is currently coming up with ideas for where I will be able to perform without having to travel from city to city and country to country,” he added. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer underwent what his wife, Sharon Osbourne, described as a “life-altering” operation last year that removed and realigned pins in his neck and back. “It’s really going to determine the rest of his life,” she said on the British TV show “The Talk” ahead of the surgery. Osbourne’s decision to walk away from the stage would have been a tremendously difficult one, as he admitted just last year that performing on the stage is “where I belong.” “The relationship I have with my audience is the biggest love affair of my life,” he added at the time.

It seems like every year, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominates more artists outside the actual rock genre . . . like EminemLL Cool J, and Dolly Parton. Well, nominees for the class of 2023 are here . . . and they released a new mission statement that sounds like it might be an attempt to head off any criticism over their choices. They said, quote, “Born from the collision of rhythm & blues, country and gospel, rock ‘n’ roll is a spirit that is inclusive and ever-changing. “The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame celebrates the sound of youth culture and honors the artists whose music connects us all.” (Translation:  We induct who we want, and you can STUFF IT.)  (???) (Ultimate Classic Rock)

Joel told the ‘LA Times’ “If anyone deserves to be [inducted], Zevon does. He was a real original, and I don’t know if that’s appreciated enough.” Joel remembered watching Zevon perform in 1974, sharing “I was knocked out. He was like the crazy brother I never had. He was fearless, and it stuck with me.” Former late night host David Letterman has also championed Zevon’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Zevon is finally on the nominees list in 2023.  He’s been eligible since 1994. The In Memoriam segment at the 2023 Grammy Awards on Sunday, Feb. 5, will include tributes to three diverse artists who died last year.

Our Dr. Dre prayers have been answered!  To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Dr. Dre’s groundbreaking album The Chronic, the album was re-released by its original distributor, Interscope Records, and returned to all major Streaming services on Wednesday (Feb. 1). The re-release comes with a special Chronic merch collection. Dr. Dre. says, “I am thrilled to bring the Chronic home to its original distribution partner, Interscope Records.

Netflix is going to start cracking down on password sharing next month.  And now we know how they’re going to do it.  Sort of. In an updated FAQ, they said, quote, “To ensure uninterrupted access to Netflix, connect to the Wi-Fi at your primary location, open the Netflix app or website, and watch something at least once every 31 days. “This creates a trusted device so you can watch Netflix, even when you’re away from your primary location.” So what if someone outside your household tries to use your account on a non-trusted device?  Quote, “Netflix will prompt users who try to sign into your account elsewhere to sign up for their own account instead and block their access until they do.” But what if that someone is YOU.  Say you’re traveling, and you want to open your account on a hotel TV, for instance? In that case, you have to request a TEMPORARY CODE when you sign in.  It gives you access for seven consecutive days.

Vanilla Ice has reflected on the time that Madonna proposed to him. The ‘Ice Ice Baby’ rapper dated Madonna for a short period in the ’90s and recently spoke about the pop star, who was nearly a decade older than him at the time, asking him for his hand in marriage. He began by telling a podcast how the pair’s romance flourished after first meeting at one of his sold-out New York Palladium shows in the early ’90s. Remembering seeing Madonna in the crowd “dancing her ass off”, he then recalled Madonna coming to his dressing room after the show to say hello as well as give him the “sexy eyes”. At the time, the 23-year-old rising star thought the then 32-year-old singer was “too old” for him so he thought he must have been “way mistaken” about her apparent romantic interest. After the New York shows, he was told that Madonna wanted another meeting.

A romantic dinner was set up at The Palm restaurant in New York after which Ice told Hutt thing “got a little dirty”. The pair then starting getting together, but Ice said that the affair was short-lived because Madonna put him in her infamous 1992 Sex book without his consent. Ice added that the two were still dating when the book came out and that he was unaware of it beforehand due to his busy career. “She even proposed to me,” he said of his dalliance with Madonna. “I was just like, ‘What?! I thought the guy was supposed to do that? What do you mean, wait a minute! This is too fast! I’m just getting started here and I’m way too young for this.’”

Keanu Reeves got a temporary restraining order against a guy who claims they’re related. His name is Bryan Dixon, although he likes to call himself “Jasper Keith Reeves”.  He claimed on social media that he wants to prove they’re blood relatives so that he can sign all his rights over and have Keanu take care of him. He’s 38 years old. Dixon has trespassed on Keanu’s property six times over the last few months.  He even fell asleep in the backyard on November 5th. He also left a “suspicious and alarming” backpack on the property, and it had a DNA test in it that he was apparently planning to make Keanu take.

If there are any “Matlock” fans still breathing, this might just be the thing that sends them over the edge: CBS is rebooting “Matlock” . . . but with a GENDER-SWAP.  Kathy Bates is the new Matlock.  She’s replacing Andy Griffith, who starred in the original series from 1986 to 1995, and passed away in 2012. Here’s the official synopsis:  “After achieving success in her younger years, the brilliant septuagenarian Madeline Matlock rejoins the work force at a prestigious law firm where she uses her unassuming demeanor and wily tactics to win cases and expose corruption from within.” Interestingly, the original Matlock never even ran on CBS.  It aired on NBC from ’86 to ’92, then finished its run on ABC – (Variety)

Let’s just get this out of the way first thing:  Jamie Lee Curtis is awesome.  Always has been, always will be. And while other people may have thought she had it in her, she never believed she’d be an Oscar nominee. She says, quote, “I’m 64 years old.  I’ve been an actor since I was 19.  I made horror films and sold yogurt that makes you [poop].  I never thought I would hear my name at the Oscars.” (Here’s one of Jamie Lee’s old ads for Activia yogurt.) Jamie Lee says that when she heard she was nominated, she was, quote, “shocked, shocked, and then thrilled.” She’s up for Best Supporting Actress in “Everything Everywhere All at Once” (New York Post)

A three-part Lollapalooza docuseries is coming to Paramount+. The streaming service announced today that it has greenlit Lolla: The Story Of Lollapalooza, to be produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and FunMeter, the studio behind HBO’s McMillion$, in partnership with the festival’s current promoter, C3 Presents. It’ll be directed by Michael John Warren, who helmed Jay-Z’s Fade To Black.

Lolla reportedly “will chronicle the wild, exciting and strangely symbiotic 30+ year relationship between the iconic festival and its founder, music legend Perry Farrell, and the evolution of the now global cultural phenomenon that transcends generations of music fans and artists of all genres.”The massively influential touring festival version of Lolla has been endlessly chronicled, but even if the series dredges up no new anecdotes about Courtney Love’s backstage behavior or whatever, presumably there are still some untold stories regarding the fixed-in-place Chicago iteration of the fest, as well as its expansion into international markets.

There is no announced release date for Lolla yet, but presumably it will premiere before this year’s Lolla kicks off Aug. 3 in Chicago?

There’s been a bit of an inheritance debate lately since Marie Osmond stated that her children won’t be included in her will.  Well, “Frasier” star Kelsey Grammer is here to give his input.

In an interview  he said, quote, “My kids are going to get their inheritance.  If the United States has decided they don’t want to give it to them, we’ll go someplace else . . .

“But, you know, I got to make sure that they’re well cared for because that’s my job.”

Kelsey has seven kids.  They range in age from 6 to 39. (Here’s more information on the “Frasier” reboot for Paramount+.) (Fox News)
