Sinchy said: I'd say Ozzfest was a failure last year...
There was NO OZZFEST last year,...Ozzy took a VACATION to chill after a WORLD TOUR and wanted to relax while workin on a few things around the house,.....like a new KILLA album.
So next time school`s out and you want some time off,...look in the mirror,...do you see A FAILURE?
I dont think you see that,....in yourself OR OZZFEST.
( FOF pulls emergency brake to anti-ozzfest BANDWAGON,...inflates exit slides,..assists Sinchy safely back to solid ground,...starts hitchin a ride back to realityville USA to get Sinchy home before dinner...)
Shit people, I guess I'm the only one who thought my post was funny.
I don't mind Ozzy taking a break, he deserves it more than anyone.
failure = saying there will be an ozzfest and even promoting a survey to vote on the bands to play it... then not having one.
But you're right rtdam, I must be a tool for joking about something.
Sinchy,...I detected more like your perception of factual circumstances,..meaning I thought, YOU thought, there was an Ozzfest. sorry I missed the humor you meant to impart,...now that you have cleared that up I`ll agree it COULD have been funny,...but the tone ,scope, and format of the thread was "Ozzfest Failure",...
Also to elaborate; Ozzfest wasnt actyually ANNOUNCED,...they were trying to INCLUDE people/fans in the early planning stages,...then very EARLY in `09 Ozzy broke the news,..yet more than likely made the decision the first part of the new year,...here are some timelines and items to note:

Here it is
?? your chance to help shape Ozzfest 2009. Tell us who you want to see onstage at next year?
?s festival! Just head over here and log into your profile. You will then be able to enter up to 5 bands you would like to see on Ozzfest 2009. Below that you?
?ll find some questions to answer
?? and you are welcome to skip those
?? but the more questions you answer the more times you will be entered into a random raffle for a chance to win a drumhead signed by Ozzy, Zakk Wylde, Mike Bordin, Blasko and Adam Wakeman, which comes with a letter of authenticity on Ozzy stationery. Why are you still reading this?? Get busy listing your favorite bands now!
Then later BEFORE the Ozztrain left the station,...Ozzy said THIS:
Ozzy Osbourne has put his annual Ozzfest on hold for 2009, opting instead to spend more time working on his follow-up to 2007?
?s Black Rain, what will be the legend?
?s 10th studio album. Ozzfest has had some tumultuous treks in recent years: The traveling festival became a free event that relied on sponsorship in 2007, while 2008 saw Ozzfest being reduced to a one-day event in Texas where
Darrell Abbott was honored with a heavy superjam.
?s hard to imagine that the recession didn?
?t have something to do with the cancellation of Ozzfest, especially considering touring is where artists make most of their money and Ozzy openly complained after Black Rain came out that fans weren?
?t buying his CD. Plus, Ozzy and family have that awful new Osbournes variety show Osbournes: Reloaded due out on Fox soon, so perhaps that too complicated matters in terms of planning a tour or anchored festival. This year marks the first time since 1996 that there will be no Ozzfest, but a statement said Osbourne hopes to bring the fest back in 2010.
(as late as OCTOBER of `08 Sharon and Jack wanted to go forth with an`09 Ozzfest,....Ozzy changed his mind,....thats all he did,..but he still gave us Ozzstuff like that comedy show.) Something that is cancelled or never happened by default cant really be judged as a failure is all i meant Mr. Sinchy.....
Have a nice day,...
