    Girl Talk (due this Saturday, June 23 on the Westword Music Showcase Main Stage) started when Gregg Gillis was earning his degree in biomedical engineering.

    The 1980s did not start well for Ozzy Osbourne. After being kicked out of Black Sabbath, the Prince of Darkness holed up in an L.A. hotel room, planning to remain as drunk as possible until his money ran out, and then probably move back to England to work as a laborer.
