Osbourne shows gratitude to Lennon by covering the latter's "How?"

Solo artist and Black Sabbath singer Ozzy Osbourne has recently covered John Lennon’s song “How?”—from Lennon’s classic album, Imagine (1971). Osbourne has always voiced his love and admiration both for The Beatles and John Lennon, and his tribute will benefit Amnesty International. For clear evidence of Lennon’s influence on Osbourne, watch Osbourne’s “Dreamer” video. Also, Lennon’s own video for “How?” would be critical if one wishes to compare or contrast the two.
