Ozzy Osbourne Receives Tribute From Metallica Star

(Classic Rock) Robert Trujillo went from covering Ozzy Osbourne's songs to recording and playing with the Prince Of Darkness, here the Metallica bassist pays tribute to his former boss.

Trujillo writes: Everybody has Ozzy lineage to a certain degree, whether it's that listening experience that happens or an actual concert memory, but my memory goes back to before I was even in High School.

When I was a kid, my best friend's older brother was a Black Sabbath fanatic and he would play Sabbath albums for us, and basically scare the sh*t out of us. He'd have candles lit and you'd stare at that album cover, and that woman that was on the cover [of the band's debut album] would seem to come to life! So my earliest memory of Ozzy was through Sabbath and being frightened by the album covers and the music - but it was all very exciting.

That transitioned into me being a young teenager learning bass and learning Iron Man for the first time - I think that and Smoke On The Water are the first bass lines that you learn, generally - and at a certain point one of my friends from High School asked me to join their band. They were playing Black Sabbath and Ozzy covers, and I soon found myself gigging backyard parties, playing Sweet Leaf, Iron Man and War Pigs...

Years later I got to meet Ozzy because they were recording No More Tears at Devonshire Studios in Los Angeles where I was recording the first Infectious Grooves album. Ozzy ended up guest singing on a song called Therapy. He was out of his mind back then, completely hammered every day, but it was a great time and a great moment for me because we were such huge fans of his. He really enjoyed the music of Infectious Grooves, and offered us a support slot on the Theatre of Madness tour: the label didn't want us on that tour, but Ozzy did and he single handedly fought for us to be on it, so we ended up opening for him. It was a dream come true. It was also the scariest tour I'd ever been on because no one knew who we were and those shows were sold out way before we were even mentioned. I learnt quickly that you never leave a gap between songs, because otherwise they'd chant "Ozzy! Ozzy! Ozzy!" and the ground would shake at every show. So it was a wake up call for me, and it was an amazing learning experience because I had to learn fast how to pace a set. When you're dealing with an icon like Ozzy and you're sharing a stage with him, you have to be ready and be on your game. Read more here.

(Radio.com) Kid Cudi has released a new video for his latest single "Surfin'" featuring Pharrell. The song comes from Cudi's forthcoming album, Passion, Pain, & Demon Slayin'. No release date has not yet been announced.

The video is all neon mood lighting, fog, palm trees and more, as Cudi and friends dance and get down in the tropical rave-like setting. The guest list is stacked with all sorts of hip-hop stars, including A$AP Rocky, A$AP Nast, Jaden Smith, Willow Smith, Chip the Ripper and Hit-Boy. Cudi looks like he's having a grand time, bouncing around a circle formed by his friends and guests. His reflective sunglasses convey a sunnier side to things.

In reality, Cudi is still checked into a rehab facility for depression and suicidal thoughts, but he took a moment to get on social media and respond to Drake's purported diss on his new track "Two Birds One Stone." He warns he'll be out soon, and if that's the case hopefully his new album will follow shortly behind. Watch the video here.

Charli XCX Releases 'After the Afterparty' Video

(Radio.com) Charli XCX has released a music video for her brand new track "After the Afterparty" which is one of the songs that will appear on her forthcoming as-yet-untitled studio album.

In the video, Charli and her crew play zombies who are stumbling home from their late night out. It's a clever play on the way any kind of big party can make a person feel, but coming on Halloween it feels even more appropriate.

But the video is less scary than sexy. Yes, that's right, Charli wants to make zombies sexy, or at least less unattractive than other TV shows and movies have portrayed them to be. In the video, blood is hot pink not red, and when zombies gnaw on people's necks and innards it looks more like bubblegum than anything really gross. Yachty even gets in the spirit, showing up with pink-dyed dreads and a pink plaid jacket and pants. Watch the video here.

Gorillaz Tease Fans With New Roving Murdoc Interview

Noodle, the guitarist, is repping Jaguar Racing. We've learned more about Russel's backstory. Now Murdoc has given a roving interview about Brexit and Ringo Starr.

'Why would I leave somewhere so great? Did you know Lithuania ranked number one in the world for internet upload and download speeds? Imagine what you could stream with that," he mused about Great Britain's vote to leave the European Union.

But who's the greatest living musician, you ask? 'Me," he demurred. "But credit where it's due, for sheer versatility and staying power, I'd have to give a nod to Ringo Starr. While everyone else was coked out of their minds in the eighties, he did his career's finest work on Thomas the Tank Engine." Read more here.

Singled Out: The Majorleans' Sunrise Mary

The Majorleans recently released a music video and single for the song "Sunrise Mary," from their album "Carousel's End" and to celebrate we asked Nicky Francis to tell us about the song. Here is the story:

I don't remember writing this song. The lyrics were bits of hallucinations I was having and writing down. They coalesced under some simple premise at the piano one night.

I can't help but make up stories about people when I see them. Strangers, pictures, cops, robbers, all of the faces tell me something, it's hard to explain.

"One night, I sat Beauty down on my lap.-And I found her galling.-And I roughed her up." -Rimbaud, A Season in Hell

The chorus definitely rings of relationship. Love becomes something intertwined with biology and chemistry and our own internal clocks that mark our time here. You meet so many people and wonder how the hell they keep their connections going, and it seems like it boils down to someone that gets you, and the rest kind of takes care of itself. Anyway it's like a meditation on the inherent and beautiful spiritual violence one goes through to maintain relationships.

Musically, Chris and I tried many arrangements before we captured the lightning in a bottle. Early versions were too Wilco-sounding, and then venturing into a psychedelic rendition that was over the top for the song. We just kept hunting it down, stalking it through the night. I came back to bassline I had imagined initially and just played it over and over. We dropped our notions of what we thought it should be and it was like a spirit alighted in the studio and Chris started playing that magic guitar line. It was a genius moment. The rest just fell into place after that. It's a simple song that means a lot to both of us and I tried to create a character in there that everyone could have known, even if they didn't anymore.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
