Record Store Day has
made an announcement so improbable it must be true: Ozzy Osbourne is to serve as Record Store Day Ambassador 2011. Quoth
the Ozzman: “I now have the power to command you to attend Record Store Day,
April 16th. Be there!
”

“The Record Store
Day Ambassador’s main purpose is to claim the mantle of greatness that conveys
the majesty of the amazing array of releases made on the world’s only holiday
devoted to music. We were thrilled when the inaugural position was held in 2009
by the Eagles of Death Metal front man Jesse “Boots Electric” Hughes, and was
then followed in 2010 by QOTSA/Them Crooked Vultures’ Joshua Homme,”
says Record Store Day co-founder Michael
Kurtz, “We really didn’t
know who could top this trajectory of camp and circumstance and, needless to
say, we were gobsmacked when Ozzy stepped up to the plate.”

 

Ozzy fans who come out to support RSD will have the first
chance to purchase a special 7″ vinyl single of Diary of a Madman‘s “Flying High Again” (with a live version
of “I Don’t Know” as the B-side), along with full-length vinyl
versions of the newly expanded 30th anniversary editions of his Blizzard of
Ozz
and Diary of a Madman albums.
