With Pentagram founder and front-man Bobby Liebling still in jail, Ozzy Osbourne has been tapped to fill in on vocals for Pentagram’s Spring tour dates. Ozzy will take a break from his farewell tour for the short stint of dates with Pentagram.

Commenting on Pentagram, Ozzy said, “I didn’t know about Pentagram was until I’d left Sabbath. But they were right there doing a very similar thing to Sabbath the whole time.”

On Bobby’s life and current situation Ozzy had to say: “For what it’s worth: That could have been me. That could have been any number of people. That’s why I say to myself every day, ‘God, you’re fucking lucky, Ozzy!’ And I wanted to help out Pentagram and old school metal fans in this small way.”

Liebling is still serving his 18 month sentence for “Physical Abuse Of A Vulnerable Adult” for assaulting his mother. It is assumed that he will retake the helm of the band once released.

The upcoming Pentagram tour dates are as follows:

5/17 – Seattle, WA @ Studio Seven
5/18 – Portland, OR @ Dante’s
5/19 – Boise, ID @ Neurolux
5/20 – Salt Lake City, UT @ The State Room
5/21 – Denver, CO @ Marquis Theater
5/23 – Phoenix, AZ @ Nile Theater
5/24 – Los Angeles, CA @ The Echo
5/25 – San Diego, CA @ Brick By Brick
5/26 – Santa Ana, CA @ Observatory
5/27 – San Francisco, CA @ DNA Lounge
5/28 – San Jose, CA @ The Ritz

Gene Simmons, the iconic bassist and vocalist of American rock legends KISS, has announced his intention to run for President of the United States Of America in 2020. Running as an independent candidate under the slogan, “I was made for running you,” the sixty eight year old musician is pledging greater focus on trade, the arts and a “unique” fiscal system, known as “Rockanomics.”

“America is at a crucial point in history,” Simmons stated at a press conference in Detroit, “I still believe it’s fine not to have a career politician in charge, they don’t know jack about the common man, however the image of America needs improving significantly. We need to show the world what kind of fun loving people we are, as well as proving our intelligence and business sense to the rest of the world. I believe I’m the man to do that, having demonstrated my business acumen, literary prowess and rock and roll attitude since the seventies… America, I was made for running you!”

Not much else is known about his policies right now but one issue already being discussed is whether or not Simmons will be eligible to run, as he was born in Israel. This is something also often brought up during the political career of actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who served to terms as governor of California. Under the proposed, “Demolition Man” legislature though, foreign born American citizens of great upstanding would be able to be elected President of the United States.
