Joe Holmes of Ozzy Osbourne Launches Farmikos
Former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Joe Holmes, who handled Ozzfest duties from 1996-2000, has resurfaced in a new band dubbed Farmikos. The first song can be streamed at Farmikos.com. Robert Trujillo of Metallica will guest on the band’s new work – out in 2013.
You can also read Joe Holmes‘ first public statement in over 12 years, since his departure from the Ozzy Osbourne camp:
Happy New Year Everyone!
It’s been a long time coming. I’m really proud of this music and am excited about getting it out. So far everything has been done without a label or management and we’re in the process of figuring the best way to put this music out.
I’ve been working with a great vocalist Robbie Locke and fortunate to have had Robert Trujillo and Brooks Wackerman guest on this set of songs along with song writing contributions from Brent Hoffort.
Stay tuned for more to come!
