We haven't heard from The Darkness in a while here on Metal Injection, but they have been back on the road for a while. With the summer months in full swing, it's festival season, which means bands might run into each other backstage and have a laugh and catch up.

I can see where Justin is coming from, but at the same time it seems to me that Justin can't grasp the level of celebrity that Ozzy is and also the level of punishment he must receive in order to enact these strict security measures. Ozzy just wants to get to his room and rest, he doesn't want to have to stop for small talk with some random band who he doesn't care about. Let the guy live in peace, we say!
