Ozzy Osbourne named 2011 Record Store Day Ambassador

Ozzy Osbourne has been named Ambassador for 2011 Record Store Day.

"I now have the power to command you to attend Record Store Day, April 16th. Be there!” says Ozzy.

Record Store Day celebrates the culture of independent record stores by playing host to in-store events/performances, signings and special product releases on a global scale.

"The Record Store Day Ambassador's main purpose," says Record Store Day co-founder Michael Kurtz, "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 Queens Of The Stone Age’s Joshua Homme. 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."
