The petition for rock legend Ozzy Osbourne to receive a Knighthood has officially reached its goal, crossing the 21,000 signature mark on Causes.
Addressed to Honours and Appointments Secretariat - Cabinet Office (UK) David Spooner, the piece reads, "I am petitioning for Ozzy Osbourne, frontman for Black Sabbath to receive a Knighthood after over 40 years of service to the music industry.
"Birmingham born John Michael Osbourne, 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. Please consider Mr. Osbourne for this honor as it is well deserved and long over due. Signed, Helen Maidiotis."
As the recently-unveiled victorious post reads, the idea began as a petition to get the whole band knighted, but quickly developed into Ozzy Knighthood petition. Nevertheless, the goal was reached, and hopefully the suggestion will reach the officials. Stay tuned for more info.
