Legendary Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne‘s wife Sharon Osbourne revealed that as she joined the music industry, the big wigs were all about cocaine and screwing women. Ozzy Osbourne’s bandmate made a horrible sell out revelation just yesterday.
Celebrity Access interview.
You had to stickhandle past all of the music industry crap of the ‘70s, and ‘80s.
“Well, thank you. If you were a woman, you were what they called a secretary. Now nobody uses the word secretary anymore because it’s insulting. Or you are called an assistant.”
In those days, It was being a secretary or a publicist.
“A publicist, right. But that is what women did. So that was it. I was like, ‘No. Not for me.'”
You have said that you had to get loud in order to get heard.
“For me, it was that way. Yeah, and it was like I had to get peoples’ attention. So to get peoples’ attention, I was louder and fouler than they were.”
There was a patriarchal order in the music industry in those days. It was also the era of cocaine and outrageous business expense accounts.
“Listen, it was at the time when it was a real boy’s club. Everything was cocaine. Women were for fucking, and that was it. That was it. Unless they fancied you or they thought they could fuck you, they (male executives) didn’t want to know in the industry. It was the boys’ club. It was going to strip clubs, getting hookers, doing the coke. You don’t do that with women. You do that with other guys that ran radio stations, and with the editor of magazines. They basically didn’t want women to be hanging around cuz you would bust them to their wives.”
Former Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward recently stated that he’s open to a reunion, after reuniting with his bandmates in new photo.
“Hi everybody. My name is Bill Ward, and I wanted to say that I love Tony, Geezer, and Ozzy very much. I’ve loved them for a long time, and I still do. And I would be very open-minded to any ideas about playing together in the future. That’s it. Love you all. Thanks.”
Ozzy Osbourne told Kerrang Magazine, “”I didn’t like the fact that Bill Ward wasn’t there, for a start. People put that down to me, but it wasn’t me, honestly. We didn’t have the fucking time to hang around, we had to get going, but I’m sorry it didn’t work out with Bill.
Tommy [Clufetos, drums] did great, but the four of us started this, and it should have been the four of us ending it. Those final gigs in Birmingham were bittersweet because you think of how far we came, and how much we did, and it would have been good to have shared that together. Maybe one day there’ll be one last gig, I don’t know.”
