 Several years ago Sharon Osbourne (Ozzy's wife and manager) created a rock concert in tribute to Ozzy called Ozzfest. Ozzfest, held annually, brings in the top heavy metal bands and is probably the world's largest heavy metal rock concert. The US tour runs from the end of June to the end of August after touring Canada for a couple weeks.The official Ozzfest 2003 site has this to say.. “For eight years running, Ozzfest has championed the hard rock scene by providing a constant source of new music to hungry fans around the world. Ozzfest 2003 feeds the masses with 14 hours of non-stop rock with its most ferocious line-up to date...Over 4 million fans have attended Ozzfest over the last seven years and no other touring festival comes close to matching this impressive benchmark. ”

Ozzy Osbourne Lyrics

Ozzy Osbourne in S.I.N. (No More Tears)
“I can hear 'em, I can hear 'em
I can see 'em, I can see 'em. . .
In my head I hear the voices scream. . .”

Ozzy Osbourne in ‘Zombie Stomp’ (No More Tears)
Hiding from the laughter and the demons dancing round my brain
Always dancing on thin ice I guess I'll have to pay the price”
Ozzy Osbourne in ‘Diary of a Madman’. (Dairy of a Madman)
 “A sickened mind and spirit the mirror tells me lies
Could I mistake myself for someone who lives behind my eyes
Will he escape my soul or will he live in me
Is he tryin' to get out or tryin' to enter me.
Voices in the darkness scream away my mental health”

Ozzy Osbourne in ‘No Bone Movies’ (Blizzard of Oz)
 “I just can't stop it, I try and I try
X-rated demon that lives in my head
Hungry for bodge, and he wants to be fed”

Ozzy Osbourne in ‘Gets Me Through’
”I have a vision that I just can't control
I feel I've lost my spirit and sold my soul
That I'm facing hell”

Ozzy Osbourne in ‘Can You Hear Them’
Can you hear them
All the voices in my head. . .
They won't be happy 'till I'm dead”
