Ozzy Osbourne Was Left (Literally) Speechless By The Beatles

You’d think someone of Ozzy Osbourne’s status wouldn’t be star struck by anyone, but the legendary rocker was left speechless when he was tasked with introducing fellow musician, Ringo Starr at The Grammy Awards.

Apparently, he joined his Black Sabbath bandmates on stage to pay tribute to Starr, but immiedietly became overcome with nerves when he saw Sir Paul McCartney and John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono in the crowd looking back at him.

"He is so in awe of that band (Beatles) that when he was introducing Ringo, he couldn't say the word Beatles. He looked down, he saw Paul McCartney, he saw Yoko... and nothing came out... He was overcome,” Sharon Osbourne, the singer’s wife, explained.

"When they finished the other guys were teasing him the entire night... He just lost it "His entire life he has just idolised the Beatles. He says that's what got him into music. I've been with Ozzy... coming up 35 years and every single day for 35 years he has listened to the Beatles... When Ozzy was in a coma, when he had his motorbike accident, we used to blast the Beatles in his room."

Black Sabbath’s iconic song, Paranoid, is featured on the latest Beats Music commercial, which aired in one of the highly-coveted Super Bowl advert slots. It saw Ellen DeGeneres play out the classic fairytale Goldilocks, but instead of porridge, she’s looking for good music.

After finding ‘Dad’s’ music too fast (that’s Paranoid, by the way), Mum’s music too slow, and the ‘teenager’s’ music… well the less said about that the better. Beats Music comes to the rescue, along with Aloe Blacc, and the three bears, the wolf and Goldilocks all dance in unison.

<3 Ozzy!!!! The press doesn't even skip a beat in their harsh assumptions of him. They've become so stuck in the cliche of him as brain dead and stupid. Thank the stupid MTV show The Osbournes and how it was cut, and the addiction she allowed to be filmed as they invaded his privacy and nearly drove him to die over no boundaries for that. The man is just the sweetest, most unassuming guy. Love you Ozzy Osbourne, always have, always will. Since 1976 baby!
