Mumford and Sons debuted on the cover of Rolling Stone this month, making it a necessary purchase for me. Besides the cover-to-cover edition Led Zeppelin appeared on not too long ago, I hadn't purchased a Rolling Stone magazine in a while. The Mumford article was amazing, of course, but something in the magazine definitely caught me by surprise.
Ozzy Osbourne, the heavy metal artist and front man of Black Sabbath has apparently been an advice columnist for two years now. Rolling Stone claims you can ask any "life issues" you want, and the questions that are chosen will be answered in their magazine. I guess what caught me off guard about this was the fact that Ozzy knew how to give health advice. The relationship advice makes sense given that he is one of the few people in the music industry to have maintained a steady relationship. But, come on, health advice?
So far, from what I have read he seems to be doing a pretty good job giving advice, and he is funny about it too. Maybe he has been through enough in his life that it might actually make him somewhat of an expert on the subject, but I am surprised people choose to ask Ozzy first for all their life's questions. I am somewhat tempted to write in now and see what he will say. For all I know he could actually be able to help me sort my life out.
