Ozzy Osbourne - Ozzy Retires as Ozzfest Headliner - "It's Time for Me To Move On"
 
 It's been rumored for months that this summer's OZZFEST would be its namesake's last ?? and on Friday, OZZY OSBOURNE announced that he is retiring as the headliner of the annual heavy metal festival. However, the singer is expected to finish this summer's tour and plans to make occasional appearances at future OZZFESTS.
 
 "After 10 years, the OZZFEST's name and reputation have been established," he said in a statement. "It's time for me to move on and do other things." His publicist noted in a statement, "OZZFEST will carry on in 2006, however OZZY will limit his performances to only a few, select cities."
 
 OZZY OSBOURNE, who's been performing with BLACK SABBATH this summer as the tour's headliner, has been dogged by throat problems, which have forced the band to drop off of the bill on several recent dates, with BLACK SABBATH cancelling three OZZFEST appearances so far this year (July 27 in Holmdel, New Jersey, July 31 in Noblesville, Indiana and August 2 in Columbus, Ohio).
 
 No official explanation has been given for Osbourne's throat problems, and it is unknown how severe they may be.
