Ozzy covers Lennon for 70th milestone

New York: John Lennon would have been 70 this week, and who better to honour his legacy in song than ... Ozzy Osbourne?

Yes, Ozzy Osbourne. The Black Sabbath heavy-metal king has made a cover of Lennon`s "How," available Tuesday on iTunes to benefit Amnesty International.

Osbourne says Lennon was a "driving force for humanity." He also credits the Beatles as the inspiration for his musical career.

A video for the song is debuting on AOL`s PopEater.com.

The former Beatle would have been 70 on Saturday. He was shot to death in December 1980.
