    Sharon Osbourne is a CUNT.

    http://www.roadrun.com/blabbermouth....wsitemID=40739

    The manager of a well-known heavy metal band (*NOT* IRON MAIDEN) who
    attended this past weekend's Ozzfest show at the Hyundai Pavillion in
    Devore, California has submitted the following first-hand account of the
    evening that will surely go down as one of the most shameful moments in
    recent rock history (NOTE: at his request, the author's identity is being
    protected by BLABBERMOUTH.NET):

    "Saturday night's Ozzfest at the Hyundai Pavillion near Los Angeles was a
    debacle on so many levels, I am still in shock as I write this. As a fan of
    many of the bands [Saturday] night, one can only hope this was an isolated
    incident, but sadly, it most likely wasn't. As many of you have heard
    already, co-headliners and metal legends IRON MAIDEN were pelted with eggs,
    bottle caps, beer cups, spit on, had people from the Ozzfest camp talking
    over the PA during their set, had 'Eddie' delayed from his onstage entrance,
    had members of the [BLACK LABEL SOCIETY] entourage rush the stage with
    American flags, and had the PA intentionally turned off over 6 times, all by
    the OSBOURNE CAMP.

    "While it's still unclear as to the exact reasons why the terrorizing
    started (rumors abounded as to why, with everything from Bruce calling out
    Ozzy in the U.K. rock magazine Kerrang! on the widely known fact that Ozzy
    uses a teleprompter, to various vague references said on stage about a
    'reality show' at an Ozzfest stop in Detroit), one thing was very clear: The
    whole thing stunk, and left me, and nearly all of the 40,000+ heavy metal
    fans in attendance angered and disappointed. Not that behind the scenes
    bickering or magazine trash talking is anything new to rock fans, but the
    shocking lack of professionalism at one of the largest stops in North
    America in front of 40,000 + spectators, at the hand of the Osbournes was
    nothing short of disgusting.

    "It all began early in the afternoon, when many side stage bands were openly
    approached in clear view of everyone backstage by Sharon and Kelly Osbourne
    to 'join them in throwing eggs at IRON MAIDEN this evening.' All the bands
    were encouraged to rally the other side stage bands to do so. Members and/or
    friends of the hardcore band BURY YOUR DEAD were seen actively trying to
    encourage other side stage bands to 'join in the fun.' Thankfully, many side
    stage bands angrily declined.

    "Later that evening, as IRON MAIDEN came on stage, their intro was
    interrupted by [BLACK LABEL SOCIETY] hanger-on and biker wannabe Big Dave,
    who was at the soundboard loudly chanting 'Ozzy, Ozzy' over the PA. MAIDEN
    opened their set and the entire band was pelted from the front row with
    eggs, beer, beer cups, spit, and various other objects by an
    Ozzfest-credentialed, bandana-wearing, Osbourne entourage. IRON MAIDEN, ever
    the professionals, continued through their set, and by the time they
    launched into their second song, 'The Trooper', Bruce changed into a civil
    war-era, red coat and began waving a Union Jack - British flag. Then,
    someone in, or associated with, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY tried to rush the stage
    waving and American Flag with the words 'Don't fuck with Ozzy' scrawled
    across his bare chest. He was tackled and beaten by MAIDEN crew and promptly
    thrown off stage.

    "As 'The Trooper' ended, frontman Bruce Dickinson, with characteristic
    spunk, launched into a scathing attack on the people terrorizing his band,
    calling them 'a sorry excuse for an Ozzy Osbourne fan,' and wondering aloud
    how, 'three dozen eggs could get snuck into the front row of Ozzfest by
    people with Ozzfest laminates?' Though he never named names, all in
    attendance could understand who he was referring to. Nicko McBrain ran up to
    the front asking Bruce to hold on while he cleaned egg off his drums. He
    then stated the the next song wouldn't be heard on 'Your local cocksucking
    corporate radio station, wouldn't be seen on MTV anymore, and sure as hell
    wouldn't be played on a fucking reality TV show,' met by a huge roar from
    the crowd.

    "During the song 'Hallowed Be Thy Name', Bruce, after only the first two
    lines, stopped singing and ran to the front row, firing back at his
    terrorizers, saying 'That asswipe right there, with the curly hair, the
    fucking glasses, and Ozzfest laminate throw his fucking ass out of here
    right now. It's gonna take more than eggs to stop IRON MAIDEN, and if it
    wasn't for a lawsuit, I'd rip your fucking head off right now, you piece of
    shit!!!!' He had the various attackers ejected and continued with a
    blistering version of the song until right before the big sing long at the
    end, the PA was INTENTIONALLY cut off. When it came back, Bruce launched
    into another scathing attack saying that they were supposed to play a
    shorter set than normal today, and only play 55 minutes, but IRON MAIDEN
    can't drive 55, or play 55, and were going to play our whole fucking set
    tonight.

    "The band endured six more 'PA cuts,' including having the power to their
    amps turned off at one point. When the PA would come back on, they would
    simply launch into the next IRON MAIDEN classic, never missing a beat.
    Frankly, with every PA cut, the band just got meaner and meaner, playing
    each new song with an anger and a fire that was at times, simply astonishing
    to watch. Bruce began the introduction to IRON MAIDEN with a speech about
    'Your constitution has something about 'We The People.' Well let me tell
    you, the only reason we are up here tolerating this bullshit, is because of
    you people. You have been amazing Glen Helen, and there are A LOT of IRON
    MAIDEN fans here tonight,' eliciting a huge roar from the crowd. He
    continued, 'It's gonna take more than eggs to stop IRON MAIDEN, NOTHING is
    going to come between us and our fans, and it will be death before dishonor,
    this is 'Iron fucking Maiden',' which was greeted by a thunderous applause.
    During 'Iron Maiden', longtime MAIDEN mascot Eddie was purposely delayed
    from making his entrance, making a brief appearance at the end, and one
    could only wonder as to how. As the band closed there set with a furious
    version of 'Sanctuary', the PA was again cut only to have Big Dave
    repeatedly chant 'Ozzy' over the PA, while the band tried to say goodbye to
    their fans. The now-furious crowd angrily drowned him out with chants of
    'MAIDEN, MAIDEN.'

    "Then, not 10 seconds after MAIDEN left the stage, Sharon Osbourne walked on
    stage and predictably, tried to give MAIDEN some fake, half-hearted praise
    about how they'd like to 'thank IRON MAIDEN,' and what a wonderful band IRON
    MAIDEN are, and how their crew were 'fantastic,' then sneering, 'But Bruce
    Dickinson is a prick.' The entire crowd, now fed up with the entire affair,
    began loudly booing her, pelting her with beer cups, and yelling 'bitch.'
    She tried to carry on, adding that 'Bruce had disrespected Ozzfest,' only to
    be drowned out by an ocean of boos, and soaked with beer. She slammed the
    microphone down and stormed off stage. Many in the crowd, fed up with what
    they had just witnessed, especially considering that many had come solely
    for MAIDEN, and paid upwards of $150 to do so, left in droves. SABBATH
    played to maybe half the audience that was there prior, and seemed stagnate
    compared to the band preceding them. As a huge fan of SABBATH, I honestly
    couldn't stand to watch them.

    "I've seen IRON MAIDEN probably 10 times in my life, and frankly this was
    the very best IRON MAIDEN show I've had the pleasure of witnessing. You
    DON'T want to fuck with IRON MAIDEN. The more the Osbournes tried to fuck
    with them, the better they got! IRON MAIDEN was on fucking overdrive!
    Considering the amount of terrorizing and intimidation that IRON MAIDEN had
    to deal with at the hands of the Osbournes and the other side stage and main
    stage bands participating, they were the consummate professionals. They had
    the crowd in the palms of their hands, and IRON MAIDEN and Bruce Dickinson
    proved beyond a shadow of a doubt why they are the greatest metal band on
    earth right now, and quite possibly, the classiest, too.

    "The Osbournes are drunk with power. Shame on them, and shame on ANY of the
    bands that participated in the terrorizing and intimidation. It was
    disgusting display, that NO BAND should have had to endure, but especially a
    legend like IRON MAIDEN. That fact that it happened in front of 40,000+
    people, at a Clear Channel-sponsored event, while Hyundai Pavilion Security
    turned a blind eye and let the Osbourne camp pelt one of the main headlining
    bands with eggs, beer, and spit, was simply inexcusable.

    "I will proudly be attending next year's MAIDEN fest, and as much as I hate
    to say it, I can't bring myself to spend another dime on the Osbournes.

    "Ozzfest, hang your head in shame."

    sharon

    made a bit of an ass of herself, she sounded very drunk.

    Maiden blew Ozzy off the stage (when he turned up that is) i think that had something to do with the egg throwing and the sound cutting off.

    Shame that Ozzy has to stoop so low :fuckyou:

    The second stage and Maiden were the only worthwhile things to see.

    I love Mudvayne, but in the live setting they just aren't as good as their albums.

    The Haunted flat out rocked.
    Trivium was great.
    Killswitch had about 200 pits going at once
    Mastodon blew everyone away out of nowhere..total surprise of the fest.
    Rob Zombie was about 20X better on the second stage than he was in '02 on the main stage.

    Sabbath only has the 'legends' appeal going for them, because they just couldn't compete with the pure energy and sonic assult Maiden brought with them. It's too bad America as a whole doesn't recognize how awesome they're still doing at this point in their career...meanwhile, Lindsay Lohan's album goes Platinum.

    Yeah, but she's just sweet. I can't believe someone would want to damage a band's set.

    There has been bad blood between Maiden and Sharon for a while.

    All of the Ozzfest shirts have Maiden written in Japanese at the bottom with a circle around it and crossed out.

    Another childish move on Sharon's part simply because Dickinson has in the past said that Ozzy tarnished his legacy by essentially becoming a cartoon of himself.

    It was also the last night of Maiden's run at Ozzfest, so it's not like the publicity would cause people to come out to see what happens next between the two bands...and since Velvet Revolver is taking their place, I can only imagine the snooze fest that will take place now.

    Good thing CNN got the story straight -

    http://www.cnn.com/2005/SHOWBIZ/Musi...eut/index.html

    " Iron Maiden's manager has condemned Ozzfest fans who pelted the band with debris during its performance at the hard rock festival's weekend stop near Los Angeles."

    Without naming names, Smallwood says he knew who was responsible for attempting to sabotage Iron Maiden's set, audio and video clips of which have begun circulating online.
    That would be interesting to see...
