Today (December 3) is Ozzy Osbourne’s birthday, and while the singer’s infamous wild moments tend to get a lot of attention, we’d like to recognize the lighter side of the Prince of Darkness.  So, in the spirit of the holiday season, here are some moments that we feel would land Ozzy on Santa’s “Nice List.”

 

Showing support for youth music programs

Ozzy was so moved by this cover of “Crazy Train” performed by the Louisville Leopard Percussionists that he sent the youth music program a check for $10,000 along with a note stating, “Myself, my whole family and my fans all loved your rendition of ‘Crazy Train.’ Keep up the good work.  God Bless, Ozzy Osbourne.”
