The problems don’t seem to end for Ozzy Osbourne.
The veteran rocker is being sued by former bassist Robert “Bob” Daisley, claiming that Osbourne and Blizzard Music owe him more than $2 million in royalties for songs that he helped craft during his time recording and performing with Osburne. It is not the first time that Daisley has sued Osbourne. He filed suit numerous times in the 1980s over writing credits and associated royalty payments.
Now Ozzy’s camp has responded to Daisley’s latest suit, comparing the suit to harassment. The full statement from Osbourne and his representatives is note below.
“For the past 36 years Mr. Daisley has been receiving bi-annual royalty statements and checks from Blizzard Music, totaling in the millions of dollars, which have been routinely cashed. Mr. Daisley has audited Blizzard Music accounts over the years using several different auditing firms who found no discrepancies. He has previously filed lawsuits in the UK and the US and has lost on each occasion.
We understand that Mr. Daisley is now in retirement and that these funds are his main source of income, so it is his right to be diligent with his money, but after 36 years, this is tantamount to harassment. We would have hoped that after 36 years that Mr. Daisley would have lost his unhealthy personal obsession and resentment towards Mr. Osbourne’s success. Blizzard Music and Mr. Osbourne plan to vigorously defend these proceedings.”
