Indeed. This kind of thing happens a lot, but it's normally bigger bands than Manowar, and it's usually more about photography than interviews. For instance, Aerosmith require a waiver which says management must approve all photos before publication, so does KISS, and Ozzy's management will only allow photographers from places they've heard of (which isn't many, unsurprisingly).
I'm just hoping Black Sabbath aren't the same. I'll be annoyed if I can't shoot them this Summer.
