Hey, a quick little story that makes me hate the old puke even more..
Ozzy rocks!! Or used to rock!! He's such a zombie now, its just stupid!! But this pissed me off big time!
So my friends and I rented a van and were planning a 7 hour trip to see Ozzfest last summer in Wisonsin. Being from Winnipeg that was the closest we could get!! Reason for seeing Ozzfest was not even for Sabbath, although even with the old freak, they still would have rocked... but we were going for Iron Maiden!!
I have been waiting to see them for years, and this was my chance, and apparently they were just annihilating all the others there at the festival.. So anyways, drove there, then was eating at a restaurant, and someone says the show is cancelled!! The WHOLE fucking show!! Because OZZY has a throat problem, so they cancelled the WHOLE show!! Fuck that!! Who does that? I missed out on my favourite fucking band! Maiden, and all that money spent going there!! plus other wicked bands, i.e. MASTODON!!!

Maiden used to love playing Winnipeg - i can't believe you haven't seen them before....i was told once that more Iron Maiden albums were sold per capita in Winnipeg than anywere else in the world....that was when they were in their prime.....

rocker, tough luck man. I've always been a huge Maiden fan. Their shows back in the 80s were legendary. On the Powerslave tour, they brought a whole fucking Egyptian tomb as their stage. I heard that they had pissed off Ozzy's hag of a wife, and she thinks that she's all fucking powerful. As much as I respect what Ozzy has accomplished throughout his career, maybe it's time for him to hang it up. By the way, just to piss off the die hard Ozzy fans out there, I want to point out that Jake E. Lee was the best guitarist that he ever had, not Randy Rhoads.
