"PLAYING TRIBUTE-Mock concert will bring legends back to life at the Merced County Fairgrounds"

Tribute bands Damage Inc., Izzy Ozborne are part of Monsters of Mock, a concert at the fairgrounds on Saturday 9-23-2006.
They might not be the real thing but they want to rock you just as hard! Or better, but in reality, it's Izzy Ozborne - a look alike of the former Black Sabbath lead singer, solo artist and reality TV star.
"Since 1980, people would see me walking down the street and say 'hey, Ozzy!' " said Joe Giambroni of Red Bluff, also known as "Izzy Ozborne."
Therefore, he kind of fell into it. Giambroni used to play drums with a band called Vertigo. After performing a couple of Ozzy Osbourne songs, he decided to break off on his own.
Like his day jobs. When he's not on stage he works as a disc jockey or helps out on his dad's cattle ranch.
But on stage - he's Ozzy. "My whole persona, body movements, gestures," Giambroni said, "A lot of it comes naturally. Some of it is acting."
He threw his head down and began rambling, sometimes incoherently, in an Ozzy Osbourne impression to do with a Viagra prescription.
Giambroni hasn't met Ozzy Osbourne but he enjoyed the MTV reality show " The Osbournes." Overall, he thinks Ozzy Osbourne is a great guy.
By the way, the whole bat incident a total accident, he said.The controversial singer is known for biting the head off a bat during a live show. Giambroni said Ozzy Osbourne thought it was a rubber bat.
Whether a bat is bitten or not, people ages 12 to 45 should get a kick out of his show at the fairgrounds, Giambroni said.
