Sweden’s gift to retro rock The Soundtrack Of Our Lives leveled the El Rey last Friday in a surprise return to North America. They played the Troubadour in 2009 and usually don’t grace this continent for an eternity of another two years. That’s seven-hundred-and-thirty days, people.

I am happy to say that Ozzy is still fucking awesome! He opened his one-hour set with an energized version of “I Don’t Know,” and he looked fit and happy, and his vocals sounded great.

I got nailed, and I was a good 20 yards away. I saw one dude perched in a tree yell to his friend who was standing next to me that this show was his personal rock and roll moment, just as Ozzy nailed him square in the face with the foam like he was an anarchist at a WTO rally.
