A couple of months ago, the city of Birmingham honoured Ozzy Osbourne by naming the giant robotic bull from the Commonwealth Games last summer after him when it was moved to its permanent home in New Street station.

Now, his wife Sharon has revealed that there's a memorabilia museum in the pipeline as well.

Speaking alongside Ozzy on the most recent episode of The Osbournes Podcast, she told son Jack and daughter Kelly that, “I’ve been busy trying to get together daddy’s memorabilia for the memorabilia place that we’re opening in Birmingham."

Asked by Jack if that meant the Double-O was coming back to live in the UK, she said, “No, but he’s having all of his awards [in the museum], all his stage clothes, posters, old posters from [early incarnation of Sabbath] Earth days. I’ve got so much memorabilia.

“We’re gonna do it totally interactive – every video, every live show of your dad’s, everything there," she continued. "It’s more of an educational thing for musicians and artists that wanna see that you can come from nothing, and if you work hard enough this is what you can get.

“We’re going to have a café, and in there we’re going to have every instrument you can think of. Music students can come in and we’re gonna do music classes, because there’s no music at schools anymore. We’re gonna get friends, other musicians to come in.”

Two weeks ago, Birmingham hosted the opening night of Black Sabbath – The Ballet, at which guitarist Tony Iommi made a surprise appearance onstage. The production heads to Plymouth Theatre Royal October 12 – 14, and London Sadler's Wells 18 – 21.
