O is for Ozzy Osbourne

Yeah sure, when he talks you can't understand what he's saying, and he's creepy (and old), but back in the day, OZZY OSBOURNE could really belt out a song.

Jessica Bell and I have teamed up for the A-Z blogging challenge this year to talk about our musical muses - a band/artist or song that has inspired, or affected us in some way. I'd seriously pass out if Ozzy was on Jessica's list. 

But anyone who knows me won't be shocked to find him on mine.

Yes, I'm aware he used to bite the heads off chickens - but so did Alice Cooper, and he "almost" made it to my "A" artist list. (Come to think of it, I wish I could go back and edit him in. His song Poison is still on my iPod.)

I can't say as I love every single Ozzy Osbourne song - in fact, I only have a couple on my playlist. But the ones I do have an instantly recognizable sound. Like this one:

I'm also not ashamed to admit (much) that Sharon Osbourne kind of amuses me, and is sometimes the reason I watch The Talk when I'm home during the week. Quite a unique family...

Got a fave Ozzy song or would you prefer to name another "O" rocker who gets your heart pumping?

Now, go check out some of the other blogs taking part in the A-Z Blogging challenge, including my Dawn Dalton blog where I'm talking about awesome YA books, and the Most-Wanted Monsters blog where Judith and I are writing poems and talking smack about some creeptastic beasties.
