Sharon Osbourne Thinks Ozzy Should Be in the Rock Hall as a Solo Artist
Sharon Osbourne has a major issue with the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and it’s something many fans likely believe, too. This issue, of course, is that Ozzy Osbourne should be in the Rock Hall as a solo artist.
She touched on the topic in an appearance on The Adam Carolla Show. Sharon touted Ozzy’s accomplishments, including selling nearly 100 million solo albums worldwide. However, don’t expect Sharon to beg the Rock Hall for the acknowledgment.
“I will never beg … So, my thing is f— you if you don’t realize that somebody really deserves to be here,” said Sharon (h/t Classic Rock).
To be eligible for induction into the Rock Hall, 25 years must pass since your debut. For Ozzy, his debut solo album, Blizzard of Ozz, was released in September 1980. This, of course, means he’s been eligible for induction since 2005. Unfortunately, The Prince of Darkness hasn’t even been nominated once.
Ozzy was inducted into the Rock Hall in 2006 as a member of Black Sabbath. The iconic heavy metal band was eligible was eligible for induction in 1995, since their self-titled debut album was released in February 1970. Their delayed induction is a prime example fans point to regarding the Rock Hall’s long history of overlooking heavy metal.
Ozzy and Pixar
Ozzy Osbourne makes a surprise appearance in the teaser trailer for Pixar’s Inside Out 2.
In the trailer below, we see all of our favorite emotions that live inside Riley’s brain: Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust. However, a “construction crew” disrupts everything while Ozzy’s “Crazy Train” soundtracks “demo day.” After the crew leaves, the emotions discover they have a new control console that’s orange. This leads to the introduction of a new emotion: Anxiety!
Inside Out 2 is slated for release in Summer 2024.
