The heavy metal icon fears both acts would be savaged by his fans but he'd still like to tour with them.
He says, "I think Eminem would be OK. I'd like to see him on the Ozzfest. Whether my audience would like to see him... my aud is like hardcore, you know."
Osbourne's son Jack, who helps decide the Ozzfest line up every year, admits Eminem could be a good support act: "You don't get more hardcore than that."
But he doesn't think his dad's fans would welcome Simpson.
He adds, "She'd get ripped apart. They'd crucify her. You can't mention Ashlee Simpson and Ozzfest in the same sentence."21/10/2004 02:24
