Well, maybe a bit of an exaggeration. But I did record a TV show this week.

Jack and Ozzy Osbourne have a program that aired on the History Channel last year called World Detour. It is switching to the A&E Channel and they are currently recording the second season. They were in New Orleans for a couple of days, and they called into see me.

They spent an afternoon here, chatting about the old days and talking about Hurricane Katrina and stuff. I thought there would maybe be five or six crew, apparently there is an entourage of 24 who travel with them! It seemed to be a lot. We also chatted about the LaLaurie Mansion in the French Quarter, it’s a famous house here in the city and I know the owner. They filmed over there that night, I went down and hung around and my nine-year-old daughter got to meet Ozzy which was great.

I’m sure my segment will be cut down to a couple of minutes, but it was great fun and I enjoyed it a lot. It was also good fun just to catch up with the two of them and have a chat, it’s been years since I’ve had the chance to do that with either of them really. My life as an Ozzy Osbourne roadie seems a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…

The clip should air in the Fall so no doubt I will be bragging and blowing my trumpet about it then. Unless I look and sound like an eejit. Which I probably won’t know until it goes out. To millions of viewers. As they say in all the best shows, “Stay tuned and find out…”
