British rocker Ozzy Osbourne's tastes have proved to be pricey for bosses
of his Ozzfest 2005 tour - because he guzzles close to $2,000 (GBP1,110) worth
of fizzy drinks alone on the road.
As the former Black Sabbath frontman prepares to take a host of bands on
road with him for the summer-long trek - which begins next month (JUL05) in
Massachusetts - organisers are scurrying to get Osbourne's specific tastes
Tour manager DAVE MOSCATO says, "He drinks English Orangina Light. Each
bottle runs at $4. Over the course of the tour, at a six-pack a day, that's
almost $2,000 in Ozzy's soda alone."
