“OZZFEST” SHIRT DROPPED
Catalyst December Issue 1998
In the October Catalyst, we remarked how the vile rock performer, Ozzy Osbourne, was marketing his “Ozzfest ’98” T-shirt. On the front of the shirt there is a demonized image of the Virgin Mary, surrounded by a collection of equally demonic characters, including a priest, a monk and angels.
We wrote to Dell Furano, president and CEO of Sony Signatures, the shirt’s distributor. So did many of you (that is why we provide names and addresses). We are happy to report that we have heard from Michael W. Fox, General Counsel for Sony Signatures: the shirt was discontinued in August. We are also happy to report that our letter was dated August 14.
