Ozzy Osbourne is an unlikely metal icon. He seems a bit old for his stretch pants and glittery garb. He incessantly urges his audience to clap and comes off just like a prim but spritely schoolmarm.

Although his Friday show at the Long Beach Arena (the first of a two-night stand) was a strange blend of heavy '70s metal, '80s philosophizing, pyrotechnics and calisthenics, the Oz won an enthusiastic response from the 13,000-capacity house full of teens.

And it was in the unholy yowl of Ozzy Osbourne, 64, shuffling along the stage like a retired vampire in search of a blood nurse, who long ago moved beyond a parody of himself to become a virtual trademark in black.

In 2001, singer Ozzy Osbourne, guitarist Tony Iommi, bassist Geezer Butler and drummer Bill Ward convened in England to work on new music. And nothing came of it. For years afterward, Osbourne openly fretted in interviews about tampering with the band's legacy. This week, Black Sabbath finally delivered "13," the band's first album with Osbourne in 35 years.
