Legendary Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne’s wife Sharon Osbourne reacted to an interviewer recently telling her about alleged rapist Harvey Weinstein working with The Rolling Stones and their frontman Mick Jagger. The Who revealed a gross photo for Mick Jagger’s birthday yesterday. Below is an excerpt from the Celebrity Access interview.
Harvey Weinstein, the Hollywood film mogul now cast as a sexual predator, then worked with Corky Burger as Harvey & Corky Productions, bringing Frank Sinatra, Bette Midler, the Rolling Stones, Stephen Stills and others to Buffalo.
“Oh yes. I can remember, believe me dealing with him. I remember him from being on the road with Electric Light Orchestra before Ozzy.”
Down under in Australia, Chuggi (Michael Chugg of Chugg Entertainment), and Michael Gudinski (of Frontier Touring) are still going strong after four decades of concert promoting.
“Oh hell’s bells, those two. The gruesome twosome. You know, characters like that don’t exist anymore.”
Is it different today dealing with younger promoters and agents?
“It’s very, very different. The people that you deal with now are all…how can I say….they are also these computer nerds. They are geeks. Everything in life, that what it’s about is change. This new breed in the industry is just so fucking boring.”
Howard Stern revealed an embarrassing Ozzy Osbourne secret earlier this week. Keith Richards discussed a heart attack killing legendary musician Dr. John in a new Toronto Sun interview.
“I’m so sad — Mac Rebennack,” said Richards, using Dr. John’s real name.
“We often played together a few times, many years ago now. We always had a great time. He liked to have a great time and so do I.”
Richards recently reissued his 1988 solo album Talk is Cheap, partially recorded in Le Studio in Morin Heights, Que., to celebrate its 30th anniversary.
“That was great because that was mostly a Canadian piece of work,” he said. “I never expected to sort of see a 30-year-old record come out again. And they did a great job on it so I was very, very happy about it.”
