Sharon Confesses She Cut Iron Maiden's Sound

LATEST: SHARON OSBOURNE has confessed she was partly responsible for the near-riot that ruined IRON MAIDEN's final show of the OZZFEST tour on Sunday (21AUG05) - by cutting off the group's sound.

The British rockers were pelted with debris by fans when sound problems wrecked their show in California.

And, after the group's manager ROD SMALLWOOD lashed out at the unprofessional conduct of Osbourne and her fellow Ozzfest organisers in a statement earlier this week (ends26AUG05), Osbourne has admitted she did sabotage the band's show.

She claims she was upset by Maiden frontman BRUCE DICKINSON's constant onstage jibes aimed at her husband, headliner OZZY OSBOURNE, and the Ozzfest faithful.

In a statement released last night (25AUG05), Osbourne, calling herself "the real Iron Maiden", says, "For 20 shows we were forced to hear Dickinson's nightly outbursts from the stage, 'When we come back to America, we'll be back with a proper sound system,' or, 'We won't be playing the same old songs every night like BLACK SABBATH,' and, 'We don't need a teleprompter like Ozzy.'

"Was Dickinson so naive to think that I was going to let him get away with talking s**t about my family night after night? I don't think he realises who he's dealing with."

It was sure pretty childish of her. Isn't she supposed to be in her 50's?I saw Ozzfest in Detroit and I agree mwith what all the diferent newpaper reviews I've read. IRON MAIDEN STOLE THE SHOW!!!!!! Is their a little jealousy on her part? However, I went to see Iron Maiden, period. I wasn't even at Ozzfest for the entire thing, basically just for Maiden and Sabbath. the newspaper reviews don't lie and IRON MAIDEN STOLE THE SHOW. She was just jealous.

Who does Sharon think she is anyway!!!!!! All her and those spoilt little anoying Brats that she calles her children have ever done is take credit for Ozzy the main man himself. It is pittyfull if it wasn't for ozzy she would prob be working as a school dinner lady, as for Jack and Kelly, well lets not even get me started on those two little whining good for nothing fat arrogant pricks. How on earth has kelly got a record contract, She cant sing, she doesn't write her own songs and for god sake she isn't even good looking. The bottom line is she has a record contract because of OZZY. Sharon has her career because of OZZY, Jack has ,well, Jack gets to do nothing and sit on his arse all day and not worry about money because of Ozzy. I think Sharon should show some respect to the rock legends that had kept her ozzfest tour on the road when Sabbeth couldn't play. Maiden may be no Black Sabbeth but they still rock just as hard and the way she trated them was disguisting. Ozzy man ditch that skank ass bitch and get yourself a new model. release a new album forget all that sellout MTV stuff Sharon has organised its embarasing.
