While our morning show hosts extraordinaire partake in all meats exotic later today in honor of Manuary, I find now’s as good a time as any to look back on a meat that I imagine a certain Prince of Darkness would only ever have partaken in: bat.
45 years ago this week, Ozzy Osbourne bit the head off a live bat that was thrown at him during a live show. Reason: He thought it was rubber.
Hi, I'm Pete Rizzo, early morning elixir for your weekends.
I love music and I love talking about it. I grew up listening to bands like Rush (best band on the planet!), Van Halen (Diamond Dave all the way), AC/DC (Bon rules!) and Genesis (the Gabriel years). But my true love is progressive rock and heavy metal. The louder, crunchier, more bombastic and self-indulgent, the better!
When I’m not on the air, I’m either training in martial arts, deciding which tattoo I should get next, reading a good book (I still enjoy turning actual pages), or my wife and I are planning our next big travel excursion.
I’m on every Saturday and Sunday morning. You can also follow me on on Twitter @PeteRizzoWBAB. I’d love to hear from you.
