OZZY OSBOURNE'S NEW SONG, "LET ME HEAR YOU SCREAM,"
Â WILL HAVE ITS WORLD PREMIERE DURING THE WEDNESDAY, APRIL 14 EPISODE OF "CSI: NY"
Ozzy Osbourne's new song, "Let Me Hear You Scream," from his upcoming Epic Records album, Scream, will have its world premiere during an episode of CSI: NY, to be broadcast Wednesday, April 14 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
In the episode, "Redemptio," a death row inmate's (guest star Harold Perrineau, "Lost") final request brings Dr. Hawkes (series regular Hill Harper) to a Pennsylvania prison and face-to-face with a tragic incident that he has kept secret for many years, just as a prison riot erupts and traps Hawkes inside.Â The story was written by executive producer Peter M. Lenkov, with the teleplay by Lenkov and Bill Haynes.
"We were looking for something high energy and irreverentÂ to sell the madness of a prison riot," said executive producer and episode writer Peter M. Lenkov.Â Â "We immediately responded to the new Osbourne tune.Â TheÂ song exceeded our expectations and brought exactly the right tone to the episode."
"When I heard they were going to use 'Let Me Hear You Scream'Â for a prison riot scene, I thought, 'Well, now that's something I know about,'" says Ozzy, who spent time in prison in the U.K. for burglaryÂ before his 18th birthday.
Ozzy Osbourne's career has spanned four decades and his music is as relevant today as ever. The multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has sold over 100 million albums worldwide â 50 million with Black Sabbath and as many as a solo artist. In 2003, he was honored with a star on Hollywood Boulevard's "Walk of Fame."Â Osbourne is not only a legend and an icon, but is a pioneer in his genre of music.Â
CSI: NY, a crime drama inspired by the drama series "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," is about forensic investigators who use high-tech science to follow the evidence and solve crimes in the Big Apple.Â
Tom Hanks is going from 'HBO's The Pacific' to Green Day's "American Idiot"?It looks that way!What do yout think? Would you go and see this?From deadline.comEXCLUSIVE: The Green Day-fueled American Idiot doesn't bow on Broadway bow until April 20. Already, talks are underway with Playtone partners Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman to turn the musical into a feature film. American Idiot uses the songs of punk band Green Day to tell the coming of age story of three small-town guys. One joins the armed forces, another moves to the city and gets mired in a drug habit, the third stays home and gets his girlfriend pregnant. There is little dialogue beyond the Green Day tunes. The musical is directed by Spring Awakeningâs Michael Mayer, the music supervisor is Tom Kitt and Green Day and its lead singer/songwriter Billie Joe Armstrong were very involved. The musical first opened at Berkeley Repertory Theatre, with Tom Hulce and Ira Pittelman producing, and it begins previews this week at the St. James Theatre.
Playtone's last stage-to-screen transfer was the Abba musical Mamma Mia! Critics might not have loved it, but audiences sure did. The film grossed $610 million worldwide, becoming one of the biggest hits in Universal Pictures history. Hanks and Goetzman have a first-look deal at Universal, but the producers will sew up the movie rights before giving the studio first crack, I hear. They just set up Larry Crowne at Universal, with Hanks directing and starring with Julia Roberts.
Universal, which keeps threatening to start movement on a feature version of the stage hit Wicked, is on a faster track with In The Heights, hiring Kenny Ortega to direct a movie version that is expected to star the show's creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda, as the bodega owner who plans to use a lottery windfall to retire on a beach in the Dominican Republic. New Line is turning the Broadway musical Rock of Ages into a film, with Chris DâArienzo adapting his book into a script and directing a coming of age story that is homage to hair band anthems.
All of this indicates that the movie musical's heart is still beating, despite the box office disappointment of Nine last year.

In 2008, following a 13 year hiatus, the band returned to the stage for their âTake Us Aliveâ world tour, which encompassed 75 cities and multiple continents in support of their new and groundbreaking record, Saudades de Rock.
This recording captures EXTREME at the peak of their game with a renewed enthusiasm led by Gary Cheroneâs spellbinding stage performance and powerful vocals, Nuno Bettencourtâs ferocious guitar, Pat Badgerâs flawless bass and Kevin Figueiredoâs pounding drums not to mention the Extreme trademark, spot on, back up vocals.

Videos include the songs âKing of the Ladiesâ, âInterfaceâ, âRunâ and âGhost.â The videos were produced by Nuno Bettencourt. âThis DVD/CD is a culmination of all the years we played together and the chemistry the four of us put out live,â explains Bettencourt.Â

Â About EXTREME:
To date, the Grammy-nominated EXTREME have released five albums, plus a greatest hits setâselling over 10 million records worldwide. They also achieved a #1 hit single, âMore Than Wordsââfrom their 1990 multi-platinum album Extreme II: Pornograffittiâon the Billboard Hot 100, which they followed with the Top Five âHole Hearted.âÂ Although these two acoustic hits brought the band great mainstream success, the bandâs trademark sound has always been more a mix of hard rock funkâfueled by guitar virtuoso Nuno Bettencourtâs signature style, Gary Cheroneâs resonant vocals and socially conscious lyrics, Pat Badgerâs rock solid bass, and the hard hitting Kevin Figueiredo on drums.
It was just after 8 a.m. on Feb. 12, and for the last three hours Guns Nâ Roses frontman Axl Rose had been knocking back cocktails of vodka, cranberry juice and champagne at hip NYC lounge Greenhouse. Hot off the stage from an electric two-hour gig at the John Varvatos store on the Bowery, Rose still had enough energy to keep the party going with his entourage of 20 or more rockers and hangers-on.
âItâs kind of his thing,â said Greenhouse co-owner Barry Mullineaux of Roseâs early after-partying that morning (Mullineaux later named a rose-colored champagne cocktail âthe Axl Roseâ in honor of the rockerâs wild morning at his club.). âHis shows always run late, and heâs a true rock star so he liked to have after-parties after all of his shows.â
Â But Roseâs recent high jinks are legendary even where rockers are concerned. For the last three weeks, the singer has been on an epic bender in New York, tearing through the cityâs nightclubs and bars like heâs still the stick-thin 25-year-old who became a worldwide phenomenon after the release of his album âAppetite for Destruction.â
Since he arrived in the city for his Fashion Week concert on Feb. 11, heâs gone out nearly every night (and continued on till the morning), usually crashing afterward at his $1,550-a-night suite in the Essex House Hotel. His assault on New York night life has made him a one-man stimulus package during the sceneâs winter doldrums â and the cityâs nocturnes are thrilled.
âItâs like heâs teaching the next generation how itâs done,â said one source who has joined Rose on at least half a dozen of his jaunts, where Kings of Leon singer Caleb Followill has also been spotted. âWhoâs a bigger rock star than Axl Rose?â
One of Roseâs guitarists, Richard Fortus, is in the process of getting started on an elaborate back tattoo at Graceland in Brooklyn, which will take some time to complete.
Though Rose, who lives on the West Coast, has been in New York on and off in the last couple years, night-life insiders say he hasnât hit the town this hard since 2006.
That year, Rose was in town to play a show at the now-defunct club The Plumm â and got into a punch-up with preppy designer Tommy Hilfiger. (Rose moved a drink that belonged to one of Hilfigerâs friends, so Hilfiger hit him in the face. The clothier was shown the door, and Rose later performed âYouâre Crazyâ â dedicating the song to Hilfiger.)
Now, the rocker, who turned 48 on Feb. 6, is back on the rampage in the Big Apple. Rose asked to play the concert at the Varvatos store â for reasons that are still unclear â and proprietor John Varvatos was happy to oblige. âWe thought they were only going to play five or six songs,â Varvatos said of Rose and his band. In fact, he played 17 to a packed room which included Kevin Bacon.
Â SAVING ABEL MAKES LONG-ANTICIPATED JOURNEY OVERSEASÂ AND PERFORMS FOR TROOPS ON USO TOUR TO PERSIAN GULF
ARLINGTON, VA. (Feb. 24, 2010) â Rock band Saving Abel teamed up with the USO for a weeklongÂ Â USO/Armed Forces Entertainment tour in the Persian Gulf. Busy visiting and performing forÂ troops in Qatar and Kuwait, Saving Abel has entertained more than 3,500 troops so far and justÂ finished filming their USO show at Camp Arifjan. Footage from the hi-energy USO show will beÂ broadcast in early March with help from Ustream.
Â As part of their eight-day, three-country USO tour to the combat zone, Saving Abel will visitÂ eight military bases and perform seven concerts. Known for their radio-ready sound,Â memorable melodies and hard-hitting tracks, the band will also sign autographs, pose forÂ photos and spend time with soldier.
â¢ Having entertained 1,750 troops in Kuwait, the group filmed their USO show at Camp ArifjanÂ on February 23 and will provide viewers with an exclusive behind-the-scenes look of USOÂ entertainment in early March. With the help from Ustream, the concert will be picked up byÂ MySpace, Facebook and other social networking sites, and is dedicated to Americaâs armedÂ forces and their families.

â¢ Students from St. Albert the Great School in Louisville, KY, created an assortment of cardsÂ and artwork, which Saving Abel have carried overseas and are hand delivering to troops inÂ appreciation.
â¢ This is Saving Abelâs first USO tour. The band has been eager to travel overseas for quiteÂ some time and have made multiple appearances on bases stateside.
â¢ Avid supporters of the U.S. military, Saving Abel performed for troops in October â08 as part ofÂ MTVâs "A Night for Vets: An MTV Concert for the BRAVE." Performing alongside such USOÂ veterans as Kid Rock and Ludacris, the concert called for elected officials to provide veteransÂ with better health care, mental-health treatment, job opportunities, housing assistance andÂ compensation for serving longer due to stop-loss orders.
â¢ Known for such songs as âAddicted," 18 Days,â âDrowning (Face Down)â, Saving Abel wasÂ formed in Corinth, Mississippi in â04.
Attributed to Saving Abel:
The safety, well-being and happiness of our nationâs troops have always been close to ourÂ hearts. And what better way to show them we care, than by traveling to the Persian Gulf on aÂ USO tour and rocking out Americaâs soldiers. The USO has a rich history of delivering a touchÂ of home to our men and women in uniform, and Saving Abel is honored to be apart of thatÂ legacy. We couldnât do what we do everyday without them, and we are forever grateful.
Attributed to singer Jared Weeks:
No matter where we go or who we are playing in front of, we always make sure people knowÂ that from our perspective it is each and every one of their responsibilities to support our troops.Â They do so much for us, they deserve to be recognized. We have these freedoms because ofÂ what they do.
Attributed to Sloan Gibson, USO president and CEO:
Americaâs armed forces do more than defend our borders and protect us from harm, theyÂ sacrifice their lives for us 365 days a year and serve our nation proudly from all around world.Â Through USO tours like Saving Abel, the USO is able to give back to our nationâs troops byÂ lifting their spirits and bringing smiles to their faces. We are thrilled to be working with SavingÂ Abel and know that those in the Persian Gulf are in for a great treat.
Attributed to John Ham, Ustream founder and CEO, and Brad Hunstable, Ustream founder andÂ president:
Ustream is a proud supporter and partner for this event with the USO and Saving Abel toÂ provide entertainment for our brave soldiers abroad. Having served our country and graduatedÂ from West Point, this is a cause that's near to us and we are honored to be a part of it. It'sÂ great to see that the Ustream platform is being used in line with our founding vision to bring aÂ one-to-many live streaming solution to everyone, everywhere.
Attributed to Jeanne Flower, St Albert The Great School Principal:
We are beyond excited to have Saving Abel deliver the childrens words of appreciation to theÂ brave men and women overseas who continue to fight for us, and future generations to live inÂ a free country.
