Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne spoke of his pride in Birmingham in a new trailer for “Home of Metal: Black Sabbath – 50 Years”.
“Well, whatever people think about me — and I don’t get the chance to go and see Birmingham very often — I’ve never ever tried to hide my accent, and I’ve never denied that I’m from Birmingham.
“I’m absolutely so proud with what I’ve done with my life; it’s unbelievable. Just hold on to your dreams, because you know what? Every once in a while they come true.”
“It’s an honor to be a part of the ‘Home Of Metal’. I am just a guy from Birmingham who’s been blessed to have had such dedicated fans throughout my career.”
His friend and bandmate Iommi added: “Fans are our lifeblood; they’ve always been there to support us.”
Bassist Geezer Butler added: “I’ve always maintained that SABBATH fans are the most loyal and honest and most independently minded of all. I thank each and everyone of them for their incredible support over the years.”
