The Detroit Free Press reports that after spending nearly half his life touring with Ozzy Osbourne, 50-year-old tour manager Bobby Thomson died in his sleep Thursday afternoon at the Townsend Hotel in Birmingham while on the Ozzfest tour. “We are devastated by the loss of our dear friend Bobby,” Ozzy Osbourne said in a statement. “He has been a part of our family for 23 years and loved very much. He will be greatly missed by all of us. Our sincerest sympathies go out to the Thomson family.” Freep.com has since removed the article.
