Sharon Osbourne recently spoke out once again about her long-standing issues with IRON MAIDEN’s Bruce Dickinson. The feud dates back to the 2005 Ozzfest tour when Dickinson made comments that Sharon found disrespectful towards her husband, Ozzy Osbourne. Sharon reportedly took offense to Dickinson’s remarks about the tour’s sound system and criticisms of Ozzy, which led to a series of incidents during MAIDEN’s final performance on the tour.

During the interview with Billboard, Sharon expressed her frustration with Dickinson’s behavior, calling him “eaten up with jealousy” for the headliner. Ozzy also chimed in, criticizing Dickinson for complaining about the tour while still accepting the gig. The tension between the two parties came to a head during MAIDEN’s last show, where audience members began hurling eggs and other debris at the band, prompting Dickinson to confront the crowd.

Sharon revealed that she had encouraged her chemo nurses to throw items at Dickinson during the show as a form of retaliation for his disrespectful behavior. She emphasized that Dickinson’s actions were disrespectful to the spirit of the tour and to Ozzy, who was paying him to perform.

In a separate interview with Consequence, Ozzy addressed the feud once again, expressing his belief that Dickinson’s behavior was unfair and childish. He defended Sharon’s actions during the Ozzfest incident and reiterated his stance that if Dickinson didn’t like the tour, he should have left instead of badmouthing him on stage.

Despite the ongoing tension between the Osbournes and Dickinson, the IRON MAIDEN frontman downplayed the situation in a 2017 interview, calling it a “storm in a teacup.” He emphasized his respect for Ozzy and BLACK SABBATH while also expressing his disdain for reality TV shows.

Overall, the feud between Sharon Osbourne, Ozzy Osbourne, and Bruce Dickinson highlights the complexities of the music industry and the personal dynamics that can arise between artists. While the specific details of their conflict may never be fully resolved, it serves as a reminder of the challenges and egos that can come into play in the world of rock and roll.
