The Pulse Of Radio reports that Ozzy Osbourne‘s mansion in Buckinghamshire, England has been ruined by flooding during one of the U.K.’s rainiest winters ever. According to the Mirror, the house, which sits on a seven-acre estate, is located in one of the hardest hit areas of the country and now needs more than half a million dollars worth of repairs.

Ozzy‘s wife and manager Sharon said the building was “destroyed,” while Ozzy added, “It’s been completely flooded. The rain has battered down the walls and seeped through everything. There is water everywhere… We can’t even go about getting it fixed because apparently it’s going to take nine months to dry out. The place is ruined.”

The water damage is the latest incident to plague the Osbournes at their English countryside retreat. Others have included Ozzy‘s all terrain vehicle crash in 2003, two fires and a burglary.

While they wait to see if the house in England can be salvaged, the Osbournes will stay at their Los Angeles home — which itself was the site of a small fire in January 2013.

Ozzy begins a short North American tour with BLACK SABBATH on March 31 in Brooklyn, New York.

Ashley “Lux” Elzinga of the 105.7 The Point radio station in St. Louis, Missouri conducted an interview with SHINEDOWN guitarist Zach Myers. You can now watch the chat below.

According to The Pulse Of Radio, Loudwire asked Myers what SHINEDOWN has coming up next on its schedule after this summer’s Carnival Of Madness tour. Myers said, “We’re going to go home. Brent [Smith, frontman] has to rest his voice. He’s not allowed to talk during the day right now. He’s on vocal rest… We take these weeks off, then go to the U.K. We’re only going to be there for eight days.”

Also on the agenda is the possible release of a collection of covers that the group has recorded, with Myers saying, “I’m not sure what’s going down with that. Originally we were just going to release it on YouTube, which you don’t need permission for, obviously, because people do covers on YouTube every day. But I believe fans really want it as a download . . . Now we’re going to release it as an EP with just Brent and I. I believe it will come out during the holidays.”

The Carnival Of Madness tour, which also features SKILLET, PAPA ROACH and others, finished up in Puyallup, Washington on September 18.

SHINEDOWN has been on the road steadily since the March 2012 release of its fourth studio album, “Amaryllis”.

Scott Vollweiler of Broken Records Magazine recently conducted an interview with Mark Tremonti and Myles Kennedy of ALTER BRIDGE. Check out the chat below.

ALTER BRIDGE‘s fourth album, “Fortress”, will be released on October 8 via EMI Label Services. The CD was helmed by longtime ALTER BRIDGE producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette, known for his work with FALLING IN REVERSE, STORY OF THE YEAR and INCUBUS, to name a few.

Kennedy told The Pulse Of Radio that the band took a different approach to writing and recording this time around. “I think that ‘Fortress’ is probably the most musically adventurous record we’ve made to date,” he said. “There was definitely an awareness when we went into this of what we would not do, which was to touch on approaches that we’d used in the past a number of times. So I think that people will hear that we took some chances on this album.”

Tremonti told Music Radar that the quartet did everything they could to make the new disc as unpredictable as possible, explaining, “The last thing we wanted was verse-chorus, verse-chorus and all that. We messed with time signatures, tones, key changes. Everything we could throw at these songs, we did. They have you never knowing what you’re getting next.”

The first single from the new album is called “Addicted To Pain”.

The arrival of the album will be accompanied by a single U.S. live date, on October 4 in Orlando, Florida, before the band jets off to Europe for a month of shows starting on October 16.
