Guitar World magazine asked several rockers "What's your most 'Spinal Tap' moment?" Ozzy Osbourne remembered when he lost his patience with the midget Black Sabbath hired for a tour. "He showed up late, he drank....It got to me after awhile," Osbourne explained. "So, one night, when he wanted to get on the tour bus, I threw him in the luggage compartment. Somebody grabbed me and said: 'What you're doing is not only illegal but it's inhumane.' I lost it. I yelled: 'He's my [bleeping] midget and I'll [bleeping] do what I want with him.' There was a silence and then a small voice emerged from the luggage compartment: 'He's right: I'm his midget and he can do what he wants with me.'" Read what Tommy Lee of Motley Crue, Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones, and Pete Townshend of The Who had to say in the full article.
