About Rob “BLASKO” Nicholson
When one thinks about the hierarchy that exists in the music business, there’s a long way to go between local band and the big leagues but then there’s a whole other category that exists above that, exclusively reserved for legends of their particular era. Elvis, The Beatles, Black Sabbath, Queen, Madonna and Metallica are a few names that come to mind when considering some of the giants that changed and shaped music as we know it today.
Rob “BLASKO” Nicholson is the bass player for Ozzy Osbourne’s band, formerly with Rob Zombie, and rock star manager to some of metal’s biggest acts including Black Label Society, Black Veil Brides, Zakk Wylde and more. Being a part of Ozzy’s band has brought BLASKO to the world’s largest stages to play for millions of people and he’s been using his knowledge and connections in the industry to help legends of the future build their careers with his management company, Mercenary Management.
