You know how our dads will turn us green with envy while casually mentioning seeing The Wailers or Led Zeppelin live? Nope? That’s just mine?

OZZY OSBOURNE can add a few more #1’s to his career. His MEMOIRS OF A MADMAN DVD (Epic Records/Legacy Recordings), released October 14, entered the Nielsen Soundscan charts at #1 in the U.S, while also landing at the top of the charts in Sweden, Finland, and Canada.
Greensky Bluegrass returns to The Odgen Theater in Denver for an epic two nights this weekend to showcase their new album, If Sorrows Swim.
