Todd McFarlane Animated and Directed Ozzy Osbourne’s ‘Patient Number 9’ Video
Ozzy Osbourne is a true force of gnarly nature. Not even two years after his last full face-melting album, Ordinary Man, he is back with his latest album Patient Number 9. Last night, Osbourne shared his new titular single off of the new album.
The song features Jeff Beck as well, which only further how much it rules. It’s incredible to still see Osbourne performing at this level the way he does. He is one of the rare cases in metal that still manages to create songs that are very fitting with his entire body of work – by which I mean they rock and have rarely stopped.
The video for Patient Number 9 which features Osbourne battling demons of his past and present is a brave reminder that the singer is in a terrifying place in his own life being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2020. Due to the diagnosis and COVID Ozzy postponed tour dates till 2023. He has also been quite vocal about the possibility of his touring days coming to an end soon.
The new song and its lyrics very much speak to the possibility of facing down mortality and I love that Ozzy in keeping with his persona is doing so with two middle fingers stuck up in the air. Simultaneously, he shows his past catching up with him. That being perfectly illustrated when a bat bites his head off, stopping him from biting the head off of a bat himself.
Much like a lot of Osbourne’s work this video will very much appeal to the horror crowd. The video which is animated and directed by Spawn creator Todd McFarlane is filled with demons, bats, werewolves, vampires pills and of course Ozzy at the center of it all.
Head over HERE to place a pre-order of Ozzy’s Patient Number 9. There are a few special editions and vinyl collections that come with Todd McFarlane comics and signatures to boot. Be sure to check em out.
Watch ‘Conjuring’ Star Vera Farmiga Nail Slipknot’s Demon Voice in ‘Duality’ Cover
Vera Farmiga, who has starred in three Conjuring movies, has a good idea of how a demon should sound. Recently, she sang Slipknot’s Duality at a Rock Academy show in Kingston, New York. She impressively matched Corey Taylor growl for growl.
Prior to singing Duality, Farmiga told the audience, “I’ll tell you one thing: This music program is one thing we can’t get enough of. We really do have the time of our lives.”
Watch the cover below – she starts singing a little after the 1 minute mark.
During the performance of Duality, Renn Hawkey (her husband) played the keyboards. Later in the show, the couple switched roles, with Farmiga playing the keyboards as Hawkey sang The Killing Moon by Echo & The Bunnymen.
Farmiga posted videos of both the Slipknot and Echo & The Bunnymen covers on her Instagram page. She also praised the Rock Academy, saying, “Best. Music. School. On. The. Planet. Enroll your kids now. And why let them have all the fun?! Enroll yourselves! Come learn. Come grow. Come play. Come have so much fun.”
Ghostface Stars in Scream VI’s ‘Still Alive’ Music Video
Scream VI is right around the corner and in the latest music video Demi Lovato takes on Ghostface. It isn’t what we were expecting to see from the soundtrack but Still Alive is still a nice addition the Scream VI soundtrack.
It does make me miss the old Scream soundtracks. The soundtracks for Scream 2 and Scream 3 were really great and full of alternative rock picks. Nowadays, soundtracks are sadly devoid of those kinds of picks.
The film stars Melissa Barrera, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Mason Gooding, Jenna Ortega, Courteney Cox, Dermot Mulroney, Samara Weaving, Tony Revolori, Jack Champion, Liana Liberato, Devyn Nekoda, Josh Segarra, and Henry Czerny.
The synopsis for Scream VI goes like this:
Four survivors of the original Ghostface killings attempt to leave Woodsboro behind for a fresh start.

The first image of the sequel to Joker shares a first look at its two stars. Both Lady Gaga and Joaquin Phoenix are featured in the first lovely image from Todd Phillips’ Joker: Folie à Deux.
The term Folie à Deux means shared “shared delusional disorder”. We are sure that this will be something thoroughly explored in the sequel between these two.
The synopsis for Joker went like this:
Forever alone in a crowd, failed comedian Arthur Fleck seeks connection as he walks the streets of Gotham City. Arthur wears two masks — the one he paints for his day job as a clown, and the guise he projects in a futile attempt to feel like he’s part of the world around him. Isolated, bullied and disregarded by society, Fleck begins a slow descent into madness as he transforms into the criminal mastermind known as the Joker.
