Ozzy Osbourne Knighthood Petition Reaches 19,000 Signatures
Plenty of musicians have received a knighthood over the years. From Sir Mick Jagger to Sir Paul McCartney to Sir Elton John… the list goes on (there’s a Wikipedia page, we’ve checked), but there’s a distinct lack of darkness in the list of honours every year. But there’s a petition trying to change all that.
A Change.org petition posted by fan Helen Maidiotis is calling for Ozzy Osbourne to receive the knighthood he so rightly deserves.
Helen’s campaign began eight years ago, but since Ozzy shared the latest petition it has attracted 19,000 signatures – just 6,000 short of the target.
“After 8 years of campaigning, we believe it is now time Mr Osbourne be honoured for his 50 years of Services to Music and Charity,” says Helen.
“A huge thank you to all the supporters across the world who have been supporting this campaign and continue to do so.”
“Keep spreading the word with the hashtag #KnightOzzy.”
Helen also runs the Knighthood Of Ozz Facebook page, dedicated to getting The Prince Of Darkness his KBE.
If you want to add your support to the campaign, sign the Knight Mr John Michael ‘Ozzy’ Osbourne petition here.
