For some reason he thinks he is King Metal or something and can do anything that he wants. He is always bashing bands. I don’t think it’s hard to understand in fact, IT'S VERY CLEAR: for no reason at all, he disrespected Ozzy and his family at their own Ozzfest. He got what he deserved, except for a good beating. Why the fuck would anyone defend that prick?

You can hate Ozzy, Black Sabbath and The Osbournes ad I can totally understand that. But Bruce Dickinson has less class than sewer rat. It’s fucking sad to see a man at forty something acting like a 14 year old brat.
Seems to me there are at least a couple of brats involved. If the Osbournes had such a problem with Dickinson/Iron Maiden all they needed to do was cut them from the tour. Being the saavy music pros they say they are, such an option should have been written into the contract. I seriously doubt Dickinson turned into a raving prick overnight, so certainly they had to know how he tends to behave prior to the tour.

there probably would not have been a big enough draw to the show without Maiden, as far as I can tell...

Come on - Velvet Revolver could possibly have stepped in earlier. Audioslave perhaps. I'm trying to search for few big names - Marilyn Manson isnt touring, um, maybe Dickhead Corgan couldve pulled together the Pumpkins by now... heh heh. Wjats Axl Rose up to? Surely Guns N Roses could have lurched around for a few shows...

I doubt Iron Maiden would sign a contract with that kind of option. And I don't think they had a problem before with Maiden so why not sign them for the festival. The rest of the people in Iron Maiden are as great as their songs. It's that two faced lead singer of them that starts shit. Hey, Sharon is a bitch. She does stupid things and she went to same level Dickinson is by throwing eggs but that still doesn't erase the fact that the man was disrespectful to Ozzy for no reason.


And by the way, I'm sure that a lot of people went there to see Iron Maiden but I sure as hell doubt that most of the people went there just to see Maiden. The festival always did very well without Maiden as it says the numbers in Sharon's statement. Plus most of the people that like heavy metal would NEVER turn their back to see Black Sabbath and Ozzy. Who is still a great performer in my opinion!

IRON MAIDEN React To Boycott Sharon Initiative
2005-09-20 14:42:06


The following update has been posted at the IRON MAIDEN fan site MaidenFans.com:



After the unfortunate incidents at the last Maiden appearance at Ozzfest, fans put up a website looking to send Sharon Osbourne and the Ozzfest sponsors a letter to let them know how they felt.



Here's how Sanctuary music reacted:



"I just got a call from someone at Sanctuary music. They and the band are aware of the project and are floored by the effort put forth by their fans. However, they want to put this thing behind them and they have requested that the money raised be given to the Red Cross for Katrina relief.



I myself felt awkward promoting this in the aftermath of Katrina, but felt justified due to the good cause of the Clive Burr M.S. Trust. Iron Maiden's fundraising gig at the Hammersmith on September 2nd was a huge success for the Clive Trust thereby negating the immediate need for donations.



I respect the wishes of the band and their management. I also respect how they have taken the high road in every instance in regards to the events of Ozzfest.



I still feel impassioned about getting the word to Sharon that her behavior was unacceptable. I am therefore going to write up the letter to her, and mail it directly to her offices and to all of the sponsors of Ozzfest with my signature and the ones who donated.



Thank you to all who donated, thank you to all who emailed, thank you to all who cared. Every cent of the donations will be given over immediately to the Red Cross. If I can, I will donate it in Clive's name.



John Farrell."



Shows how much class the band has.
