Hi,
I was given the contact address for Ozzy's tour manager and i asked him if he wouldn't mind doing an interview.If he decides to do this i think the best way to do it is to compile the questions from the users of this site.I think this way the questions will be varied and this will keep him interested.So with fingers crossed i wait for a reply, but please ask away and if he does give it the go ahead that'll be a bonus.So what would you ask him???.....I asked him if he had any photos from his time with Ozzy/Randy.

These are just a few of the bands he's worked with over the last 32 years

I've been extremely fortunate to have extensively travelled the world with a diverse array of high profile performing talent. I've undertaken many positions throughout the last thirty-two years (it hasn't always been glamorous!), from roadie, sound technician and promoter's representative - through to the logistical specialities of tour management and tour accountancy.

Here's a question. Are there any funny stories about some of the gigs that occurred while on tour with Ozzy that we do not know about?

How about, where is the audio/video from that time period :!: If nothing else, where is the footage that had to have been shot of some of the first Diary stuff? I find it damn near impossible to believe they would get that elaborate stage show set up, make an intricately detailed model of it, and never tape it so that Ozzy could see for himself how it looked during an actual show :evil: Or what about the Passaic, NJ show in April 81 that so many bands have had taped by the house camera, but yet, no Ozzy? Or a the fact that Ozzy said they had so few recorded shows from that time, yet Tommy Aldridge has a box of tapes that were better then what was used for Tribute. I don't expect he has any of this stuff, but he could confirm or deny it, or at least shed some light on it.

Exactly...... :wink:
These are my questions too.

What was your favourite memory of Randy?

How much did Randy practise each day?

How did you transport the stage set around from venue to venue? (Like how many lorries did you need or anything like that.)
