Ozzy will be a knight to re­mem­ber

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A PE­TI­TION has been launched to get rocker Ozzy Os­bourne a knight­hood.

The 17,000-strong pe­ti­tion urges the Cabi­net Of­fice to nom­i­nate Os­bourne, who lives in Jor­dans, for a knight­hood, say­ing he de­serves it for ser­vices for his char­ity work and abil­ity to beat his ad­dic­tions.

The Black Sab­bath front­man said he had heard about the cam­paign and that he quite liked the idea.

He said: “Get­ting knighted? I can’t imag­ine any­thing bet­ter. And my wife (Sharon) would be­come a Lady, which would be pretty cool.

“But I’m not go­ing to get up­set if it doesn’t hap­pen. I never thought I’d get fur­ther than Aston (his birth­place in Birm­ing­ham).”

His com­ments come af­ter thou­sands signed an on­line pe­ti­tion for him to be hon­oured in the Queen’s list.

The pe­ti­tion was started by He­len Maid­i­o­tis, who said: “I am cam­paign­ing for Ozzy Os­bourne to re­ceive a knight­hood, as he thor­oughly de­serves this hon­our.”

The Queen is­sues hon­ours on the ad­vice of the Cabi­net Of­fice.

Rec­om­men­da­tions are sent to its Cer­e­mo­nial Sec­re­tar­iat to be con­sid­ered.
