The Dark Lord Ozzy Osbourne is to cap off a life in rock with a life-in-rock-spanning compilation (that’s solo, not Sabbath) titled ‘Memoirs Of A Madman’, which I’m still disappointed isn’t a book.

I’m also disappointed that it doesn’t have ‘Changes’, his collaboration with offspring Kelly, on it. Still, what it does have is the following, startling, tracklisting:

Crazy Train
Mr Crowley
Flying High Again
Over The Mountain
Bark At The Moon
The Ultimate Sin
Miracle Man
No More Tears (edit)
Mama, I’m Coming Home
Road To Nowhere
Perry Mason
I Just Want You
Gets Me Through
I Don’t Wanna Stop
Life Won’t Wait
Let Me Hear You Scream

A nod (clearly) to Mr O’s 1981 LP ‘Diary Of A Madman’, ‘Memoirs’ is to be released in various combinations, both vinyl and not, on 6 Oct, nicely in time to act as the score to many a trick-or-treating trip/seance/Satantic sacrificial party. How nice.

This is a trailer to go with the thing
