Ozzy To Receive Kerrang! Rock Legend Award
Ozzy Osbourne is the second one to ever receive the honorary award, and at age 62, it's well-deserved and has been long coming. He has dedicated his life to music, performing, traveling and ultimately changing the face of Heavy Metal. For decades, he has been gracing the world with his presence and had touched the lives and hearts of millions.
Ozzy released the following statement reguarding his award:
It's an incredible honour to be the second recipient of Kerrang!'s Legend Award, said Ozzy, and I'm looking forward to you all going 'f****** crazy' at the 30th Anniversary party at the Hammersmith Apollo!- hennemusic.com
As for Kerrang! Magazine, they are just as stoked as Ozzy about the award and concert:
We are so unbelievably excited to have Ozzy play this very special show for our 30th-birthday celebrations in June, said Kerrang! editor Nichola Browne. We are privileged that the Prince of Darkness can help us mark this momentous milestone in style and it's guaranteed to be a night to remember.
Ozzy has been the mainstay of rock music. During his long and colorful career, he's not only helped define heavy metal as the voice of Black Sabbath, he's also enjoyed a three-decade reign as a solo artist and inspired thousands of rock fans to 'go f****** crazy' during his unmissable live shows. He's a much-loved, larger-than-life personality, and it is only fitting that we will be honoring Ozzy with the prestigious Legend Award at this year's Kerrang! Awards.
Congratulations to Ozzy and his success. We wish him all the luck for the birthday show in London!
