20 Years today since Ozzy Osbourne – No More Tears was released
No More Tears is the sixth studio album by English heavy metal musician Ozzy Osbourne. Released on 17 September 1991, the album charted at number 17 on the UK Albums Chart and 7 on the US Billboard 200 albums chart.
No More Tears spawned five singles, of which four reached the top ten of the US Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, including the number-two “Mama, I’m Coming Home”, and it contains the Grammy winning track “I Don’t Want To Change The World”. It is also one of Osbourne’s two best-selling albums in North America, along with his debut Blizzard of Ozz, having been certified four times platinum by the RIAA and double platinum by CRIA. To date, sales stand at over 5,000,000 copies worldwide.
Motörhead’s, Lemmy collaborated with Ozzy on this album, he co-wrote such popular tracks as “Hellraiser,” “Don’t Want to Change the World,” “Desire” and “Mama I’m Coming Home.”
And just recently Ozzy was credited in part to reuniting a lost autistic boy in California.
Joshua Robb ran away into the wilderness near his elementary school in San Barnardino on September 12 and was missing for approximately 24 hours. A team of about 60 people on foot and in vehicles scoured the lands in attempts to find the boy. The boy’s father, Ron, requested that his son’s two favourite tunes, Osbourne’s “No More Tears” and country artist Alan Jackson’s “Good Time,” be blasted over the San Barnardino National Forest’s public address system. The thought was that even though Joshua is allegedly fearful of loud noises, the familiar songs would draw him out of hiding.
“I heard them blaring ‘No More Tears’ and it was a short time after that we heard the rescuers had found him,” Ron Robb told NBC.
The boy, scratched & bruised, was taken to a local hospital, but is reportedly fine otherwise.
What do you think is “No More Tears” still as good as it was 20 years ago, or has song like this one below past its used by date?
