John Lydon - John Lydon Rants At Ozzy Osbourne

Acid-tongued John Lydon has branded Ozzy Osbourne a "senile delinquent" and accused him of tarnishing Britain's reputation with his outlandish behaviour.
The outspoken Sex Pistols star admits he was once a huge fan of Osbourne's early work with Black Sabbath, but insists the heavy metal rocker is now a bad representative of the working class in the U.K.
Lydon rants, "The rumours of biting pigeon heads really haven't impressed me. Ozzy acting like a senile delinquent is unimpressive. Ozzy's a working class man like me yet he allows that to happen.
"By acting like he does, he implies that we're all stupid, the working classes. We're not! We're the proper Britain, us lot."

Yeah, and you must be working class, I haven't heard any music out of you, even when you had a band. but what are you doing now but ranting? Like Neil said "What ever happened to Johnny Rotten"? I wouldn't have known who you were if it did not say you were from the Sex Pistols. At least when you hear Ozzys' name, one thinks of the U.K. Your name congers memories of puking on stage and terribly bad music.Have another pint of ale Bloke and lay off the OZ man! He will be remembered long after the sex pistols are long forgotten!, Yeah, and you must be working class, i haven't heard any music out of you, even when you had a band.

Ozzy the master be hide the lyrics to Mr. Crowley on the blizzard of ozz, knows that one of the most important things to remember is to practice what you preach. Unfortunately all Christians do not practice what they preach and good thing Aleister Crowley did not practice what he preached, but his followers may have, so does John Lydon practice what he preaches. Ozzy is a great musician, but a bad and naughty one.
