Let’s be real: if we were living in medieval times, Ozzy Osborne is probably one of the last people you’d want given a sword and ordered to protect your life. But, then again, Paul McCartney and Elton John wouldn’t necessarily be much higher on the list.
These are just honorary titles, ones that mean a whole lot to the person given the title, and Ozzy Osbourne has already said he “couldn’t think of anything better” than being knighted.
So, if the 20,000 signatures of support for the Ozzman being a knight isn’t enough, maybe the knighting committee needs to reexamine its process for picking knights.
As Osbourne has certainly accomplished a ton musically, and been a great example of turning his life around from some seriously scary places, one might not be able to think of a musician more worthy of the title. If you agree, sign this petition here.
