Sharon Vs Maiden Pt...
Blabbermouth reports: Sharon Osbourne spoke exclusively to Kerrang! magazine last week regading IRON MAIDEN's final performance on this year's Ozzfest tour, during which she cut MAIDEN's power and arranged to have the band pelted with eggs and debris from the crowd. A couple of excerpts from the interview follow:

Kerrang!: Reading between the lines of [IRON MAIDEN manager] Rod Smallwood's statement, the unspoken suggestion is that you orchestrated this whole thing...

Sharon Osbourne: "Of course I did. I had the PA turned on and off. And look, it's not hard for someone to walk into a diehard Ozzfest crowd and say, 'Who wants to throw an egg at a rock star?' Who wouldn't wanna do that? I went out and bought 50 eggs and me and my daughter had a f***ing blast. C'mon, it's rock 'n' roll. No-one died. They'll be waiting a long f***ing time for an apology from me." [We're still waiting for you to apologize for letting Kelly sing let alone go out in public.
