Ozzy Osbourne - Ozzy Osbourne wants knighthood

Ozzy Osbourne wants a knighthood.

The 65-year-old rocker is delighted by an online campaign to have him recognised in Queen Elizabeth's honours list, and thinks it would be ''pretty cool'' for his wife Sharon to be given the title 'Lady'.

He said: ''I've heard about that campaign. Getting knighted? I can't imagine anything better. And my wife would become a Lady, which would be pretty cool.

''But I'm not gonna get upset if it doesn't happen. I never thought I'd get further than [hometown] Aston.''

The Black Sabbath frontman also admitted he is surprised his career has lasted so long as he only imagined he would be successful for a ''couple of years''.

He added in an interview with Time Out magazine: ''I don't [look back], but I guess I should a bit more. Because I know when I had my first successful album with Sabbath I thought, 'Oh this is great, this will last a couple of years. I'll just get drunk every night and have a few chicks in my room.'

''And here I am, 45 years down the road and I'm doing better than ever. I haven't always been on top of the world, there have been bad times as well, but you don't just give up at the first sign of choppy waters, you carry on rowing.''
