[OzzFest co-founder and organizer Sharon Osbourne released an] open letter ... In 30 years in this business...I have never seen anything anywhere near as disgusting and unprofessional as what went on that night.

I don't know what happened but...

The scale, viciousness and concentration of the throwing made it obvious that this was a premeditated and coordinated attack.

The Homer Simpson 'Conducting Oneself With Quiet Dignity' award goes to Bruce Dickinson , for not using his acceptance speech as a cheap shot against the Osbournes , but merely thanking his band and fans. Bravo, sir!

Notoriety that has spread all over the globe.
