In his assertion although, he mentioned the selection has already been made and that they are going to be “private mates” of his. I’m keen to guess that it could possibly be Judas Priest, however I don’t know far more than any of you do in the mean time.

Nonetheless, we’re hoping Ozzy can correctly heal up and discover time to hit the stage once more.
