Ozzy Ready to Reunite with Black Sabbath

While the bloom may be off his once-rosy MTV series, Ozzy Osbourne does have something to crow about: He’s getting back together with his pioneering British heavy metal band, Black Sabbath.

The group plans to reunite for the first time since 2001 for Ozzfest, which begins July 10 in Hartford, Conn., a spokeswoman for the annual road show announced Tuesday.

Ozzy's Group Makes Cut, Despite Ozzy

Ozzy Osbourne could end up in Cleveland, even though he doesn’t want to.

Inductees will likely be named in December, followed by a spring ceremony in New York.
