ADF on Sharon Vs Ozzy
antiMusic reports: This week's MorleyView features Battle for Ozzfest winners A Dozen Furies. During the interview Morley asked frontman Bucky Garrett about the recent events between Sharon and Iron Maiden. An excerpt is below: 

antiMusic: What can you tell us about the Sharon Vs Dickinson thing? Did you see Maiden's last show and the events that transpired? Had Bruce really been bagging on Ozzy for the entire time?

Garrett: Yeah, from what I heard. And then the whole thing happened in San Bernardino which was just outrageous. I don't know how much he deserved but they were shutting the power off on him and stuff like that. I don't know. Anybody who has the balls to talk mess about Sharon or Ozzy who has had their own festival which is named after Ozzy for 10 years. And it's been one of the most successful tours ever….is just real ballsy. And in my opinion it's a bad move. But I'm not Iron Maiden so it's not my decision.

A little excerpt from Levine: "the connection between punk culture and Buddhist teachings in his book, Dharma Punx: "Buddhism teaches present-time awareness. It's not about living for some future date. It's about moment-to-moment awareness in this present time. That's punk. The Buddha said his path leads against the stream. That's punk."
