A longtime feud between Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson and Sharon Osbourne has just been brought down a notch...sort of.
In a new interview with Britain's NME, Dickinson calls the bad blood "a storm in a teacup." To recap, it goes back to Ozzfest 2005 when, according to the Osbournes, Dickinson badmouthed Ozzy from the stage every night. It came to a head at a show in San Bernardino, California when Sharon hired 200 kids to throw eggs at Dickinson, ordered Maiden's power cut off and afterwards replaced the band on the tour.
Dickinson, while not exactly saying that all is forgiven, says that he "grew up listening to early Sabbath with Ozzy. Ozzy and Sabbath are icons so that’s that, end of story." As he remembers it, it wasn't exactly Ozzy himself that upset him at the time, anyway, but The Osbournes reality show. He now says, "The fact that I don’t like reality TV shows, well, I’m not gonna offer an olive branch to the Kardashians either."
