The Black Sabbath frontman was banned from performing in San Antonio 34 years ago after he urinated on the war memorial while wearing a dress during a drunken episode. His action was viewed as desecration and the ban remained in place for 10 years, until he donated $10,000 to the Alamo memorial fund.
The moment he said sorry appeared in reality TV series Ozzy And Jack's World Detour. Jack Osbourne tells EW.com: "We had to chop a bunch of things down in the edit, because it was really quite charged. There were a lot of people there.
"The city of San Antonio was great with allowing us access - but they totally threw us under the bus, announcing at a council meeting that we were coming.
"We remained relatively under the radar doing this show. Going to San Antonio and having that happen was just like, 'Oh, man.'"
He adds: "My dad is great with crowds. He's great with all that when it's in his setting. But in the 80s there was a lot of aggression towards what he does.
"He always worries - is there that one lunatic in the crowd? So that made him really uneasy." Watch the video cliphere.
Last year Ulrich's bandmate Kirk Hammett confirmed it, saying: "We were unhappy, and we might have grumbled something to someone." Now Ulrich tells Metal Forces: "It's certainly not something that I was ever aware of.
"When you have a collective entity like Metallica that's been together for 35 years, there are times on that journey where the idea of what to do next has brought different options.
"There were times when Kirk was kind of floating out there, and there were a couple of times Hetfield was floating out there, and there were times when I was floating out there.
"So it was very possible. I'm sure Scott Ian knows something that I don't - and I'm fine with that. It was just not something that was ever on my radar." Read morehere.
Page Six reports the 65-year-old Aerosmith guitarist was performing with the supergroup on their summer tour of North America when he stumbled offstage and, according to sources, soon lost consciousness and apparently went into cardiac arrest around 9:30 p.m, with police on the scene reviving him.
A clip posted by Instagram user @leeniepics shows Perry wobbling offstage before being treated by emergency officials. "#JoePerry collapsed on stage just now!," she wrote. "He had to sit on drum kit and then went behind a small wall and passed out. FDNY and NYPD carried him off quickly."
Perry was taken to Coney Island hospital, where he was listed in stable condition. At around 10:00 p.m., Cooper stopped the concert and informed fans that Perry had not been feeling well.
"If you notice one of our brothers is not onstage with us, he was very sick before the show'," Cooper reportedly told the crowd. "Thanks to everyone asking about our brother @JoePerry," tweeted Cooper after the show. "He is stable right now, with family & is under the best care." Read more and see the videohere.
After an interview with his friend and fellow former Maiden singer Blaze Bayley was reported, fans were worried that Di'Anno was battling cancer. But he insists that is not the case.
Di'Anno tells Classic Rock: "I collapsed at home after coming back from Argentina and a scan found a massive big black shadow on my lungs. I thought I was on my way out, but it turned out to be non-malignant.
"It was an abscess that was all infected and the size of a rugby ball. It turns out I've been living with this thing in me for the last few years. The doctors said it was an airborne thing that caused the infection and I could have picked it up anywhere.
"I had to go into recovery after the operation and rather than go back to my home in Sao Paulo, Brazil, I stayed here in England and I'm now in a care home." Read morehere.
The Southern rock legends originally cancelled a July 19 appearance at Artpark in Lewiston, NY while Rossington was checked out and, following surgery, have updated fans on the status of their upcoming shows.
"The Lynyrd Skynyrd band is canceling or rescheduling the next 2 weeks of touring, while Gary Rossington recovers at home from heart surgery to repair blockage in his arteries," said the band via social media.
"Currently, the band hopes to resume touring on August 4 in Woodlands, TX. The band has rescheduled Boston, MA at Blue Hills Bank Pavilion to September 23 and moved Big Flats, NY at Tag's Summer Sound Stage to the following day, September 24. We are continuing to work on other potential re-scheduling, as well."
Rossington suffered a heart attack last October that saw the group cancel the final pair of 2015 dates while he recuperated. Read morehere.
Organizers reported via their Facebook page that they called for an ambulance and Ellefson was transported to St. Pantaleon hospital for treatment, where his foot was put into the cast.
The post says that frontman Dave Mustaine took to the stage to break the news to fans at the event. Mustaine also reportedly posted an update via Periscope, according to a tweet from @MandatoryMetal1, saying that Ellefson broke his foot backstage.
Mustaine later released a video where he announced that Megadeth had pulled out of the Masters Of Rock festival in the Czech Republic which took place Sunday (July 17th.) He said in part, "Our bass player's received a severe break to his foot. I'm very, very sorry to tell you this. But we will make it up to you next summer. Please hang in there and stay metal."

"I'm going to stop these people every time I see them today and tell them how much their band sucks, Baker captioned the post." His remarks did not go unnoticed, both Oli Sykes and Matt Nicholls from Bring Me The Horizon commented on Baker's photo. "Sorry old wrinkly bastard," wrote Sykes.
"Hahah I can't imagine being as old as you are still acting like a 14 year old girl, wrote Nicholls. Which promoted a scathing reply from Baker. "It seems you've missed the point entirely. The issue here is entitlement. My post was a comment on your collective delusion that working local crew at a thirty band festival should be required to memorize your faces to spare you the indignity of breaking stride on the way to your backstage oasis or even worse, the humiliation of carrying credentials. Your literal display of arrogance (and the hilariously unrecognized irony within it) was what I was sharing with my followers. I honestly don't know if your music is bad or good - it's not for old people! I meant that you suck as humans. Sorry for the confusion."
Check out Baker's post, and the subsequent commentshere.
Speaking at the Diamond Pub Concert Hall in Louisville, Kentucky, Anselmo says: "This is why I say I f***ing hate rock stars - because when I see some a**hole rock star strutting around like they wrote a song or something, it's, like, 'A**hole. Motherf***ers write songs in their bedroom. What makes you different?'
"You cannot walk 10ft in someone else's goddamn f***ing shoes. Come back down to earth, you f***head. I've met and hung out with Lemmy. I've known Dio, I've known Ozzy, I've known Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler. I've spent time with them and they're the nicest, most down-to-earth people I've ever f***ing met."
He continues: "If any motherf***er in a band ever struts past you, give them the old f***ing bird finger from The Kid. F*** those a**holes. You've gotta be real. It's so much easier to be a dick - it takes effort to be nice to everybody, but you know what? It pays f***ing off to sit, listen, talk with people, be real as f*** with people."

Adler joined fellow classic GNR lineup bandmates Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan at Paul Brown Stadium for "Out Ta Get Me" and "My Michelle" from 1987's "Appetite For Destruction", marking his first appearance with the group since he was fired for excessive drug use in 1990.
"On the drums, you might know this guy," Rose told the crowd, "ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Steven Adler." The drummer has long lobbied for a reunion with the band through the years and finally had his chance on the sixth stop on the group's Not In This Lifetime summer tour.
Adler was replaced by Matt Sorum in 1990 during sessions for the "Use Your Illusion" albums. The remainder of the 26-song set in Cincinnati remained similar to other shows on the summer run, which will continue at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, TN on July 9. Check out the videos of Adler's reunion jamshere.
Topping a new list of the Top 60 biggest UK records in sync with this month's 60th anniversary of the Official Albums Chart, the project stands alone as the first and only album to have sold over 6 million copies in the UK, with 6.1 million sales to date.
"What a great bit of news to wake up to!", says guitarist Brian May. "The most popular album? Well, I always thought the band showed promise, but this is beyond our boyhood dreams! Thanks folks!"
Drummer Roger Taylor added: "Incredible... marvellous... humbling... thank you... I feel good!" See the Top 10 listhere.
But with the situation showing no signs of improvement, and facing the possibility of the total removal of his tongue, the sticksman chose an experimental immune therapy called immunotherapy - a treatment which stimulates the immune system to fight cancer. As a result, the tumor has almost been completely eradicated.
Rockett tells the San Diego Union-Tribune: "I just didn't feel right. This should be getting better, not worse. I should be eating better, I should be swallowing better - what the hell's going on?"
He underwent a scan which showed that the original tumor was still present. "The lymph nodes on my right side lit up, the lymph nodes on my left side lit up, and on the side of my tongue there was stuff," Rockett says.
He then put his name forward to Dr. Ezra Cohen at the UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center - and waited to hear if he'd be accepted for the trial. Read morehere.
Billboard reports that the US sales figures of 186,000 units mark the third-largest week for a rock album this year, and Blink's best-selling seven-day period since 2003.
Mark Hoppus last week told Spin: "I think people take Blink more seriously now than they did before. People wrote us off as this joke band - but the people who listened to Blink knew that we were silly and whatever, but we wrote songs about divorce and suicide and depression." Read morehere.
Accepting the award, frontman Jonathan Vigil says: "I know it's a really sh*tty thing to say but it's the honest to God truth - I was done, and the fans brought me back to life and made me want to get back on stage again. I want to send this award out not just to the fans but to the two drivers who passed away in the accident. This one's for them."
The band's tour bus was involved in a crash with another vehicle in El Paso, Texas, in November. Both drivers were killed and the band members suffered varying degrees of injuries.
Drummer Andrew Tkaczyk lost his leg and has since returned to playing the drums, having had a prosthetic leg fitted. Read more and watch the reunion performance videohere.
"Instead of a page that says, 'Dave's been fishing, is planning on going into the studio, and likes Django Reinhardt this year,' let's take the camera to the beach, play some Django, and go after what I'm best at!" Roth said in 2002. "I spent easily $600,000 outta pocket. I spent the mortgage, literally. It grew beyond a simple 'here's a kinda the day in the life,' because my day is full of fantasy and literary references.
"I've woven it together in a form that I think is much more appropriate for our national attention-deficit syndrome, or whatever it is we're having," he continued. "In this, you're entertained right along with your current state of biorhythms, which is frenzied. If you watch television and listen to radio regularly, if you spend any time at the local shopping mall, then your inner tempo is frenzied. At least in the United States.
"And I tried to create a different type of television - it's not really a show and it's not really a biography. There's a lot of show-and-tell in there. I'm not really sure what it is. Perhaps that makes it pure. Like Picasso said, it's bound to go over some people's heads, so I also created a version with a director's commentary."
"No Holds Bar-B-Que" features a dizzying array of images and musical performances, with a diverse setlist that runs from techno to blues to mambo to swing, mixing some Roth originals with plenty of covers by artists like Gerry Rafferty, ZZ Top, The Beatles, The Hombres, The Chemical Bothers and ELO, among others.
The hour-long video was initially sold on VHS during the ill-fated 2002 "Sam And Dave" tour - pairing up (at the time) former Van Halen singers Roth and Sammy Hagar (fans dubbed it the "Sans Halen" tour); the package has yet to see an official release. Stream the videohere.
On the relationship that developed between himself and fellow vocalist Shinoda, and the recording sessions at North Hollywood's NRG Recording, Bennington tells Metal Hammer: "This was a time where no-one really knew what was f***ing going on.
"I mean the label tried to get rid of Mike, which is probably the funniest thing in the world. Looking back I was just thinking 'Wow, this is insane, this is a wild ride.'"
Bennington adds that the band were confident in their vision for the album, but that the label were only convinced when they heard the final product. Read morehere.
Blythe posted a series of photos with lengthy captions via Instagram detailing the accident and calling out the driver. The first post contained the following: "Photo #1 in a series. We are all ok- BUT if you are driving & looking at this: PUT DOWN THE GODDAMNED PHONE AND DRIVE, A**HOLE. 7.9.2016 "PAY ATTENTION #1" Oklahoma. Listen to me, little girl: this is what you almost died in yesterday. This is what you almost killed me, my 2 friends, our dog, & another driver with. This is what you almost killed your 3 friends with. This is what you almost killed YOURSELF with. I sat parked on the side of the two-lane country road & I watched as you plowed into our chase vehicle's trailer- I saw your truck hit it & fly into the air. Like a slow-motion horror movie scene, you sprouted deadly wings & flew high into the air towards us before crashing onto the road a few feet away. You had hit another truck before you even crashed into our trailer. We were in the middle of nowhere, on wide-open road, with a clear view for miles. How did you not see us? How fast were you going to run into 2 vehicles & still fly into the air like that? We were stopped, & completely off the road, the other truck behind us that you hit was going maybe 3 mph, maximum. We were all aware of each other- somehow, you were not. " See the photo here.
The second post: "After you landed on your side, Rob & Kim & myself jumped out of our vehicles & ran the 15 feet towards your truck- it was smoking & we heard you all screaming inside. As we ran to the truck a person climbed out of the passenger side window, then another, then another, then another & you all flopped onto the road, filthy & covered in blood. It was a real-life horror movie- I prayed as I moved towards you: 'Please God don't let anyone be dead!' You, the driver, kept yelling 'My brakes went out, my brakes went out'- this is bullsh*t. The skid marks tell us a different story, but even if they had, you must have been going 80 mph according to the other driver you rear ended before you even hit Kim's trailer. Why? You were so quick to deny blame, screeching your head off before the rest of your friends were even out of your mangled truck- you are a child; a child driving a huge, deadly weapon. By the way, that's you going into shock on our trailer while the EMTs work on you & your other friend- I watched it happen. If Kim hadn't been behind me & Rob with that trailer, we would have joined you. Or worse." Read the other postshere.
