Ozzy Pays Tribute To Lennon

It's not as unexpected as the Judas Priest cover of the Joan Baez song Diamonds & Rust, but word that Ozzy Osbourne has recorded a John Lennon song still gave us whiplash.  The Ozz take on the 1971 Lennon song How? from Imagine gets released on Saturday (10/9) the 70th anniversary of Lennon's birth.  A video for the song filmed in New York shows the Black Sabbath veteran taking purple flowers to the John Lennon memorial in Central Park, across the street from the Dakota, where the former Beatle was gunned down.  Osbourne says that hearing the news John had been killed stopped his world.  Proceeds from the sale of the song will be donated to Amnesty International.
