SIGN O’ THE TIMES

Ozzy Osbourne billboard adds some rock cache to Sunset Strip’s Roxy.

Signs are looking good that rock and roll is returning to the Sunset Strip after a long hiatus due to the pandemic. Exhibit A: this awesome new Sunset Strip billboard on the side of the Roxy hyping Ozzy Osbourne‘s upcoming 13th studio album, Patient Number 9.

“It’s about being a patient in a mental hospital,” revealed Osbourne about the title track on his Ozzy Speaks Sirius XM show. “All we do really is self-medicate.”

The 73-year-old heavy metal legend’s Patient Number 9 isn’t due until September 13, but last week, fans were treated to a sneak-peek of the album. The POFD released the official music video for the title track in a clip directed by Todd McFarlane.

STREET ARTIST HUGE GIVES THE SUNSET STRIP A ‘MINI KISS’

sunsetandclarkmagazine1A curious new character has popped up on Sunset Boulevard this week.

Sunset and Clark spotted this four foot tall heavy metal midget affixed to a utility box on Sunset and Horn, across from the old Tower Records Sunset location.

We give major props to the guerilla artist, Huge, not only for the bizarre yet badass idea to morph two timeless pop culture icons, KISSAce Frehley and Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me’Mini-Me, but also for showcasing one of the coolest rock artifacts ever: the Gibson Flying V!
