* Rumours start to circulate that a new guitarist has been picked. An anonymous poster tells I Heart Guitar (in the comments section of this post) that Dario Lorina has been picked as the new guitarist (prompting me to run this sneaky profile of Dario Lorina while waiting for more news).
* Blabbermouth reports that several different sources have told it that Gus G of Firewind will perform with Ozzy at Blizzcon.
If Zakk’s really been booted out without so much as a phone call, that’s a pretty lame way for things to go down. Zakk’s a huge part of the Ozzy Osbourne legacy and deserves much better than this.
