This time, The Brewer's Art went with a local celebrity of sorts. After receiving a cease-and-desist letter on behalf of musician Ozzy Osbourne, the Baltimore brewery has renamed its Ozzy beer Beazly, said co-owner Tom Creegan on Tuesday afternoon. It is named after Mark Barcus, a bartender of the Mount Vernon bar for nearly 17 years. His nickname around the bar is Beazly, Creegan said. "The running joke joke was if you worked here long enough, you don't get a gold watch - you get a gold ale," Creegan said.  The company submitted the proposed name change to Osbourne's representatives, Creegan said, and they approved it. Earlier this month, The Brewer's Art asked customers to submit potential new names for the beer (which will keep the same recipe)

Ozzy Osbourne has endorsed soda, a cellphone and even imitation butter spread. But one product the Prince of Darkness apparently does not approve of is Ozzy, the Belgian-style strong pale ale made by the Baltimore-based company The Brewer's Art. The local brewery received a cease-and-desist letter from representatives of Osbourne, the hard-rock-forefather-turned-reality-TV-star, Brewer's Art co-owner Tom Creegan confirmed. The canned version of the beer has a logo depicting a clenched fist with the letters O-Z-Z-Y spelled on the fingers, similar to the Black Sabbath singer's own left hand.

NO MORE TEARSOzzy Osbourne (Epic 46795)After all the years Ozzy Osbourne spent as a bat-biting bozo, it may seem impossible to take this heavy metal icon seriously, but "No More Tears" ought to change a few minds. Ozzy hasn't changed his sound all that much, as most songs still revolve around his inimitable squeal and Zakk Wylde's screaming guitar, but his songs are sharper and more incisive this time around. Sure, he addresses the dark side on tunes like "Mr. Tinkertrain," but he also has fun with his devilish image, goofing on his reputation in "Zombie Stomp" and "Hellraiser."

Most people think that what made the original Black Sabbath special was that it was so heavy. Not just heavy metal, but heavy in the most elemental sense, from the hellhound growl of the guitars to the devil-worship rumors that wafted after the band like a bad odor. Needless to say, that was more than enough to endear the band to a generation of rock-and-roll misfits.But as Ozzy Osbourne remembers it, what set Sabbath apart wasn't its heft, but its daring. "If you put my years in Black Sabbath in a nutshell, we did a hell of a lot of experimentation," he says by phone from his home in Los Angeles.

Ozzy Osbourne once bit the head off a bat, was singled out as a satanist by Cardinal John O'Connor, and helped invent the darkest, doomiest music known to man: heavy metal. But on his new album, Down to Earth, Osbourne gazes out a window and wonders, "Will Mother Earth survive?" He has given up drugs, drink and cigarettes. Can it really be? A new softer, fuzzier, vice-free Ozzy? "That's wrong," Osbourne jokes soberly in his Chicago hotel room. "It's killing me. Killing me." Osbourne is feeling his 53 years in other ways on this day. He recently broke his right leg when he fell in the shower.

Baltimore beer company The Brewer's Art received a cease and desist letter from representatives of Ozzy Osbourne over the brewery's popular pale ale named "Ozzy," (pictured above, on the left side), Brewer's Art co-owner Tom Creegan said this afternoon. The canned version of the beer features a logo depicting a clenched fist with the letters O-Z-Z-Y spelled on the fingers, similar to the hard-rock singer's own left hand. Bat imagery also appears, which is likely a reference to one of Osbourne's most infamous on-stage stunts .  Creegan declined to comment further on the news, first reported today by City Paper.

When the owners of the Brewer's Art announced it would begin selling cans of their flagship beer, Resurrection Ale, in the summer of 2010, many Baltimore beer-lovers rejoiced. On Friday, those some fans will have another reason to cheer: Cans of Ozzy Ale, another long-time favorite of the Mount Vernon bar, will be available for purchase, partner Tom Creegan announced today. The first can of Ozzy, which has 7 percent alcohol content, will be cracked open on Friday at 4 p.m., Creegan said in an email.

"America's Got Talent" is three weeks into their nationwide search for the next million dollar act and the show has decided to hit up St. Louis. A puppeteer named Tom Bonham is first up. His act is underwhelming to say the least. He really just moves some puppets around on a table. It almost seems like new judge Howard Stern is going to give him a “yes” because he feels sorry for him. “He's been working his whole life,” says Howard. But he gives him a “no” along with Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel, and Tom does not make it to the next round in Las Vegas.

A month ago, rock legend Alice Cooper complained about today's young Turks of rock. "A lot of hard rock today sounds joyless," he said in an interview. "Bands forget to have fun. " Rock stars from his era, he said, knew "rock should be played from the crotch — not the brain. " This much we know about Ozzy Osbourne: When he performs at 1st Mariner Arena on Monday , he won't be playing from the brain. Now in his 60s, Osbourne still knows how to have fun. Earlier this year, he headlined the 14th annual Ozzfest, the heavy-metal festival he founded.

Alice in ChainsAlice in Chains (Columbia 677243)In some ways, the most impressive thing about "Alice in Chains" isn't that it boasts some of the crunchiest guitar and heaviest riffs Alice in Chains has ever used but that it does so without really sounding like a metal album. It helps, of course, that Layne Staley totally avoids the standard metal mannerisms -- the stentorian shriek, the mock-operatic histrionics -- preferring instead to multi-track his tart, alterna-rock baritone into harmonies so complex it's like hearing the Beach Boys at half speed.

THE U.S. Department of Agriculture is vested with a solemn and crucial mission, although nobody's quite sure what it is, so naturally 55,000 USDA employees are outfitted with government-issued Bank of America charge cards with very high credit limits. A little more than a year ago the USDA's legions were busy propping up sugar prices for American consumers, subsidizing large corporations at the expense of poor farmers in Burkina Faso and otherwise pursuing the cause. Of course, they deployed their plastic to full effect.
