And you guessed it, they had lots planned to celebrate; a new animated video for “Crazy Train”, a live Twitter chat, the release of a new HD version of “30 Years After The Blizzard” documentary, a SiriusXM Ozzy’s Boneyard radio special, “40 Years Of Ozzy Osbourne’s Blizzard Of Ozz”, commemorative merchandise, and a black & red vinyl.
