Hollywood star Russell Crowe is stunned after Sony BMG executives refused to meet him to discuss a potential record deal. Despite an Oscar to his name, Crowe discovered his worldwide fame and acting talent wasn't enough to convince music bosses he could be the next big music star. Crowe has recently been performing in local Sydney, Australia, nightclubs with his new band The Ordinary Fear Of God. He laments, "We were turned down by Sony BMG last week. I didn't even get a meeting to get turned down. Just a message."
