Ozzy Osbourne on Possible Knighthood: ‘I Can’t Imagine Anything Better’
Ozzy Osbourne has received many accolades in his life, but there's one that's eluded him that he would take great pride in -- knighthood. There has been an online campaign to get Osbourne knighted and the rocker commented on it during a recent chat with Time Out Dubai.
"I've heard about that," says Osbourne. "Getting knighted? I can't imagine anything better. And my wife would become a Lady, which would be pretty cool. But I'm not gonna get upset if it doesn't happen. I never thought I'd get further than [my childhood hometown of] Aston."
These are the best of times for Osbourne, who has reunited with Black Sabbath and just issued a solo career spanning 'Memoirs of a Madman' collection earlier this fall.
Osbourne stated of his reunion with Black Sabbath, "It's the cherry on the cake for me. I've been bowled over by the success of the last record. We're touring all over the world. It's been a remarkable couple of years."
After the success of the '13' album, the band recently announced plans to record one more disc, play a final tour and then call it a career. Meanwhile, Osbourne is anxious to continue with more solo work in the future, as well.
