Report for 7/21/05
Ozzy Vs Press
Blabbermouth reports: The Boston Globe is reporting that the wife of BLACK SABBATH frontman Ozzy Osbourne has Boston Herald editorial director Ken Chandler in her crosshairs after the newspaper once again ignored her ban on photos of the singer performing at Ozzfest. (Viewers of MTV's "The Osbournes" know Ozzy suffers from debilitating and potentially embarrassing body tremors.) After the Herald published a picture last year, Sharon was furious and called Chandler to complain. (He reportedly hung up on her.) Ozzfest publicist Shazila Mohammed said the Herald wasn't given photo access this year but still sneaked a shot of Ozzy into its Saturday paper. Chandler is on vacation, but managing editor Kevin Convey said yesterday, "No one is going to tell us what pictures we're going to put in the paper."[If it was People magazine it might have been different. see full story for more and see how Clear Channel teamed up with Sharonfest in protest]- Click Here for the Full Story
