Ozzy Osbourne Turns 60

Ozzy Osbourne Turns 60

Ozzy Osbourne, the Godfather of Heavy Metal, turned 60 today, but for some reason I'm the one who's feeling old.

The Madman managed to close out six decades of drawing breath despite years of epic self-inflicted abuse, both as the original lead singer of Black Sabbath and later in an equally successful solo career. Ozzy's exploits have grown into the stuff of legend: Biting off the head of a dove and a bat, urinating on the Alamo and being sued for driving teenagers to suicide with his music.

In more recent years, however, he's come to be known better for his befuddled ramblings on the MTV reality show The Osbournes, which followed the day-to-day life of Ozzy, his wife Sharon and two of their children, Jack and Kelly, casting the Prince of Darkness in an all-new light. Since then, his incoherence and incapacity, although largely an affectation, have become a point of humor and affectionate derision, not to mention a lucrative marketing tool: Ozzy's mumble has featured prominently in recent ad campaigns for both Samsung and World of Warcraft.

So congratulations and happy birthday, Ozzy, and best wishes for many more. We never thought you'd make it this far.

Let me be the first to say happy birthday, Ozzy.

go Ozzy!

Happy birthday O.O.

I want to ride a crazy train.

Happy birthday sir. I hope you continue defying the limits of the human anatomy well into your 100's ^^

Wait, he's 60? Jeez, talk about aging slow.

He sprayed me with a hose at Ozzfest!

I think I might be the only one, who wishes for another 60. It would be hilarious.

This guy is never going to die.

Who thought he'd make it THIS far? lol. I love the guy, but he focked himself up over the years.

To arsen: No, Keith Richards will be the only one to live for 1,000 years!

I never expected that he would ever live to be 60.

I'm sorry, I thought this was a gaming site. Must have been mistaken, as this has only the tiniest link to games at all.

Holy fuck...Sharon! Shaaaroooooon!

It's a little self-indulgence by Malygris. Let it slide. I see you had no problem with the Stonking Great Tits thread.

It would be. I would love to hear that in 60 years. "Ozzy turned 120 today. What. The. Hell."

Rock on Ozzy! Ozzfest is always a good time and has pushed many great artists to the limelight.

you forget about Dick Clark

that new WoW commercial with Ozzy is great

I am glad he reached 60, and I sincerely hope he gets at least another 40 or so years before dying.

Think all the drugs and booze that he took back in the day embalmed him while he was still alive.

My hat's off to him for making it this far and still not taking himself seriously. He's truly an inspiration to us all.
