Ozzy Osbourne says that he will always be remembered for his infamous bat-biting incident.
Asked by the Los Angeles Daily News how he wants to be remembered, Ozzy said:
“It’s not the way I want to be remembered [but] I know I’ll be the man that bit the head off the bat. That will be my epitaph. It won’t be, ‘Here lies Ozzy Osbourne … he did a bit of good …’ It’s going to be ‘The bat-biting lunatic,’ which … I don’t care.”
“It must have been stunned by the lights or something because it just froze and I thought it was a toy,”
“I just put it in my mouth. Then its wings started flapping and I got such a shock. I tried to pull it out too quickly and its head came off.”
The verdict? “It tasted all crunchy and warm . . . like a Ronald McDonald’s.”
