Ozzy Osbourne at the Pepsi Center, 2.8.11

OZZY OSBOURNE
With Slash
02.08.11 | Pepsi Center

Ozzy Osbourne layeth the smack down last night at the Pepsi Center with Slash -- he of the shaggy mane, top hat, Velvet Revolver and, of course, Guns N' Roses -- in tow. A chair-packed stadium floor might not be what the Ozz-man usually cometh to, but it didn't deter anyone from having a flash-back party to when guitars were shredded beyond recognition and drums were beaten like they were designed to be.
