ZAKK WYLDE'S TAKE ON THE IRON MAIDEN/OZZFEST DRAMA
Is the whole thing with Iron Maiden overblown or is it for real? How did all the drama start?
This is fact and this is reality. It's not the guys in Maiden and their crew. They're a beautiful bunch of guys. Bruce ****inson every night would be saying "Ozzy sucks," "Ozzfest blows," "Corporate America sucks," "America sucks," and all this other crap. He was bagging on America and bagging on Ozz. Ozzy's the godfather of my son. It wasn't like Bruce said those things one night. This happened every night on the 'fest. If you got signed by George Steinbrenner to play for the Yankees and every day you say "Steinbrenner sucks," "Yankee Stadium blows," "I can't stand playing for this team - it sucks ass," then why are you playing for the Yankees? Shut your ****in' pie hole. All he had to do was go up there, play for an hour, whoop some ass and go home. The only thing Ozzy's ever done was given Maiden a stage to come over and play to the biggest audience in the summer. Ozzy would give you the shirt off his back. He'd never do a bad thing to anybody. Sharon didn't like him talking about her husband like that and talking about Ozzfest like that. It's just not kosher. The bottom line is Bruce was being a wad! You act like a **** you get treated like a ****! That's what happened. He's definitely not one of the guys. Everybody in their band and crew are cool. I love Maiden but he's talking about the godfather of my son, he's bagging America and all the troops are fighting overseas defending our way of life and freedom and fighting terrorism. This ****wad's taking American money and then he's gonna go home. At the same time he thinks he can badmouth America. It's not cool. He got pelted with a batch of eggs and they turned the power off on him! Go home!
