Osbourne Slams Hall Of Fame Stars

OZZY OSBOURNE has hit out at the other music greats inducted into Britain's Rock 'n' Roll Hall Of Fame last month (NOV05) - for turning the event into an ego-fest.

Osbourne's BLACK SABBATH joined THE WHO, PINK FLOYD, NEW ORDER, JIMI HENDRIX, JOY DIVISION, THE KINKS and ARETHA FRANKLIN as the first acts honoured.

But the rocker was disappointed by the atmosphere at the London bash.

He tells The Sun Online, "I've been saying Britain should have a Hall Of Fame for years.

"But when I got to the ceremony it was ego night out.

"I was performing in front an audience full of bands I've looked up to all my life - like The Kinks, Eurhythmics and Pink Floyd - and I'd seen more action at an Irish wake.

"These guys are so cool, they are the people who started rock 'n' roll, but they were sitting there with heads bigger than Selfridges.

"I felt like screaming: 'Do you know how lucky we are? We don't have to get up in the morning, sit in traffic and go to a job we hate for a person we hate then come home, eat and maybe get a shag off the wife - and do the same thing every day for five days a week.'"
