Ozzy Osbourne

A woman has launched a Facebook campaign calling for the knighthood of Ozzy Osbourne.

The page has already gotten more than 4,000 signatures, supporting the notion that Ozzy be knighted.

I think it’s high time. But more than Ozzy, Tony Iommi should be knighted. The dude’s written every riff in metal.

The lady is a 45-year-old named Helen Maidiotis, and Kelly Osbourne the other day endorsed her efforts.

Maidiotis originally wanted all four original members of the group to receive a knighthood, but when told that was unlikely, she settled on Ozzy.

Again, I would have gone with Tony.

“Our campaign has reached Buckingham Palace, as a friend of mine had sent off letters explaining about our battle for Ozzy’s knighthood — and they have replied positively,” she said.

Maidiotis added that she is hoping to reach 5,000 signatures in time for Sabbath’s performance in London’s Hyde Park on July 4.

She said that she intends to “see this right through to the end, whatever the outcome.”
