(hennemusic) Ozzy Osbourne won a pair of Grammy Awards for his latest album, “Patient Number 9”, during the 2023 edition of the annual event on February 5 in Los Angeles.

The project was honored as “Best Rock Album” ahead of releases by The Black Keys, Elvis Costello & The Imposters, Idles, Machine Gun Kelly and Spoon, and the rocker took home the prize for “Best Metal Performance” for the track “Degradation Rules”, which features his Black Sabbath bandmate Tony Iommi on guitar.

Producer/guitarist Andrew Watt and bassist Robert Trujillo accepted the 2023 awards on Ozzy’s behalf. Osbourne’s thirteenth album was nominated for four awards, but the record was bested by other projects in the “Best Rock Performance” and “Best Rock Song” categories.

“Patient Number 9” sees Osbourne working with a core lineup of Watt, Trujillo, Zakk Wylde and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, and guests including Iommi, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Duff McKagan of Guns N’ Roses, Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready, Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters, and Chris Chaney of Jane’s Addiction.

Skate Rockers JFA Returning With New Album ‘The Last Ride’


Skate punk legends JDA have announced that they will be releasing their new studio album, “The Last Ride”, in May. Earshot Media sent over these details:

If you ever wondered what the hell happened to real from the heart, blazing fast, solid running, tight as nails, old school to the bone, genuine 1980s born and bred, backyard pool inspired skateboard punk, let not your heart be troubled: It lives!

JFA is back with their first studio album in way too long and you don’t even have to be a hardcore skateboarder or old school punk aficionado to pick up the heavy sound they’re putting down. But it damn sure wouldn’t hurt.

The songs on THE LAST RIDE (out May 2023) range from the lying liars and their deluded followers actively attempting to dismantle everything that ever made America great, to barreling surf music, dewatered swimming pools, good punkers gone but not forgotten, and the searing truth that asphalt has taken a piece out of everyone who’s ever ridden a skateboard down a hill.

But fret not, the album’s title does not indicate the imminent demise of the OG Skate Rock band that launched a thousand stage dives.

As founding guitarist Don Redondo puts it, “Last ride refers to ‘one more’ at the end of a skate or a surf session. You either bring it (get a killer ride) or sometimes go for it to the point of slamming hard. Nobody does a safety run after saying ‘one more’ – while many skaters won’t even say ‘one more’ out loud (the mojo is that strong).”

Or, as Brian Brannon, original JFA singer, practitioner of blatant vocalism, two-time gracer of the cover of Thrasher Magazine, and the dude filmed rolling down a slide multiple times into a bone dry cement desert pond in the 1989 Santa Cruz Skateboards Speed Freaks video says: “Everyone should just live.”

Driving, thumping, toneful bass on THE LAST RIDE is once again provided by Corey Stretz (The Blades, The Crowd, China White, The Outsiders), throwing down a melodic rhythmic pummeling of the deep end.

Meanstreak-while, hard pipe-hitting, multitimbral, Animal from the Muppets, punk rock style drums is provided by Jamie Reidling, who was once a teen drumming delinquent hailing from the parking lot of the infamous Cookoo’s Nest. His musical rap sheet rattles off the likes of The Cadillac Tramps, Shattered Faith, Big Drill Car, U.S. Bombs, Die Hunns, TSOL, and Devils Brigade [with Tim Armstrong and Matt Freeman of Rancid].

We’re talking tight, raging, musical, skate punkitude all around. Johnny Come Lately’s, try to keep up.

Get THE LAST RIDE while it lasts.

Tony Visconti responds to claim that “Harry Styles is the new David Bowie”

Tony Visconti has responded to the suggestion that Harry Styles is the new David Bowie, shutting down the claim that the former One Direction star is worthy of the comparison.

The American producer, known for being a lifelong collaborator with Bowie, took to Facebook in the early hours of this morning (February 6) to share his views on the 65th Annual Grammy Awards which took place in Los Angeles yesterday (February 5).

“What’s the difference between the Grammys and Las Vegas? Nothing!” he wrote as a status.

He then followed up to share his view on Styles, who won Album Of The Year and Best Pop Vocal Album for third solo album ‘Harry’s House’ and also performed his hit single ‘As It Was’ live.

“Someone just told me that Harry Styles is the new Bowie?” Visconti added in his own comments. “From what I saw tonight he’s not worthy of shining in his shoes.”

Visconti’s partnership with Bowie spanned nearly 50 years, first collaborating on 1969’s ‘Space Oddity’ and working intermittently on 10 albums in total until final album ‘Blackstar’, released two days before the legendary musician’s death in January 2016.

Followers agreed with Visconti in the comments, with one writing: “There will NEVER be anyone that’s the new David Bowie he is in a class of his own always will be unique.”

Another added: “Thank you , thank you, thank you Tony for saying what so many of us are thinking.”

One person also shared that they’d heard the same comparison upon the release of Styles’ debut self-titled solo album in 2017 and “immediately said ‘nope’. Bowie was one of a kind and irreplaceable”.

They continued: “That said, as the parent of a teen, I appreciate Harry. He inspired my daughter to learn to play music.”

Earlier this year, Visconti recalled a previously untold story about a “goosebumps” moment he experienced while recording Bowie‘s song ‘Weeping Wall’.

Last year, he also embarked on a UK tour called ‘Tony Visconti: The Best of Bowie’ where his band performed hits from Bowie’s back catalogue.

Meanwhile, the big four awards at the Grammys went to Styles (Album Of The Year), Lizzo (Record Of The Year), Bonnie Raitt (Song Of The Year) and Samara Joy (Best New Artist).

Parker McCollum Releases ‘Handle On You’ Video


Parker McCollum has released a Jim Wright directed music video for his single, “Handle On You,” which is currently in the Top 15 at Country Radio and has surpassed 80 Million global streams since release.

McCollum had this to say about the new clip, “Shot half of the video at a sold out show in my hometown – 20,000 people at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion.

“Shot the other half at our Family Ranch in East Texas. Seemed like the perfect opportunity to get to come home and showcase, on-camera, the place I love the most while doing what I love to do the most.

“I love this song and wrote it with my buddy Monty Chriswell and I feel like we really kind of went in a different direction with it from my other songs.

“Putting this thing on film and giving the viewers a look into my life at home and on the road was an important visual for me to have to go along with the track.

“So, in short, I love every bit of it and hope the fans dig it. Can’t wait for it to be out!” Watch the video below:

L.A. Guns Preview New Album With ‘You Betray’


L.A. Guns have shared a lyric video for their new single, “You Betray”, which comes from their forthcoming new studio album, “Black Diamonds”, that arrives on April 14th.

Freeman Promotions sent over these details: Produced by founding member and guitarist, Tracii Guns, ‘Black Diamonds’ is a tour-de-force of rock ‘n roll that fans have come to expect from the long-running hard rockers.

Written and recorded over the course of 2022, ‘Black Diamonds’ sees Tracii Guns, Phil Lewis and company continuing on the same successful and inspiring sonic journey that they’ve been taking on their most recent albums, ‘Checkered Past’, ‘The Devil You Know’, and ‘The Missing Peace’.

The band doesn’t shy away from flexing their hard rock influences as they always have, but also incorporate more introspective acoustic tracks reflective of their classic rock influences from the ’70s. This makes for a potent and highly listenable cocktail of an album in ‘Black Diamonds’.

Since their self-titled debut in 1988 to their widely praised recent suite of “comeback” albums, L.A. GUNS, led by Tracii Guns and Phil Lewis, have always delivered solid rock ‘n roll to their fans. Since core members Tracii and Phil reunited under the banner of L.A. Guns in 2017, a rekindling of the band’s creative energy has been continuing unabated over the course of, now, four studio albums. ‘Black Diamonds’ shows no signs of this renaissance slowing down…
