Ten months ago, I volunteered to help organize Desautels’ fifth annual Hot Cities of the World trip. I enjoy the challenge of detailed logistics; in my pre-MBA life, I booked national concert tours and publicity campaigns.

"Our library at McGill, it's ugly," he told The Moscow News on a recent visit to the city. "Today, we have gorgeous new buildings, gorgeous old buildings, but there's a time where you go, ‘This is as bad as Stalinist or Maoist brutal stuff.' It was useful, but it was ugly."

He was a television star and sat comfortably on the throne of his (and his wife Sharon’s) own making. Yet he still dreamed of a greater feat. “I suppose the one ambition I have left,” he wrote in his bestselling 2009 memoir, I Am Ozzy, “is to get a number one album in America.”
