For the sake of those of us who had never heard of Barry Fey...
Ozzy Osbourne learned of Fey's passing while on tour in Australia.
"Barry Fey was a gentleman and a great friend," Osbourne told The Post via e-mail. "He was the first U.S. promoter to believe in Black Sabbath and gave us our first American tour. The music world has lost a great man. My heart goes out to his family."
