fans are campaigning for the singer to get a knighthood with an online petition
Australian fan Helen Maidiotis
who started the petition originally wanted every member of Black Sabbath
to be knighted, but decided to focus her energies on the Prince of Darkness.
Justifying her petition please, Helen said:
"[Ozzy] has been entertaining and inspiring a great many throughout his life, he has been a huge success world wide with many successful albums with both Black Sabbath as well as in his solo career. Now in his mid 60's, I believe the time has come for him to receive a Knighthood.
"Ozzy has been an inspiration to many great musicians over the last 40 years. He has taken a lot of young musicians under his wing along the way, from the late and great Randy Rhoads to Zakk Wylde and many others. He is a credit to his country.
428 people have signed the petition
at time of writing. Can UG readers help make it to the 1000 target?
