From biting the heads off doves and bats to snorting ants through a straw, the first few months of Ozzy Osbourne’s solo career were, to put it mildly, eventful. But Ozzy’s antics got him into the worst possible trouble 35 years ago this month.
Drunk on booze and wearing a women’s dress, – Ozzy Osbourne took a leak on The Alamo in San Antonio, Texas on February 19, 1982.
While certainly not the only time this has happened, Ozzy certainly set a precedent. These days, doing so could land you in jail. San Antonio did ultimately lift the ban 10 years later.
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.
