Ozzy Osbourne

Singer Ozzy Osbourne, born John Michael Osbourne, is the lead singer of the pioneering heavy metal band Black Sabbath, a popular solo artist, and a reality TV star with his wife Sharon and two children, Kelly and Jack. Growing up in England, Osbourne was once a laborer in a slaughterhouse. This may have influenced some of his famous stunts, like biting off the head of a live dove during a meeting with his newly signed record company and biting the head off a bat thrown on stage during a concert.
