This day in metal

Ozzy Osbourne

There was once a time when people did stupid things because of how good Ozzy was:

1984, 19-year-old John D. McCollum killed himself with a .22 caliber handgun after spending the day listening to Ozzy Osbourne records. One year later, McCollum‘s parents took court action against Ozzy and CBS Records, alleging that the song “Suicide Solution” from the album Blizzard of Ozz contributed to their son’s death. The case was eventually thrown out of court.

Nowadays I see a new generation of kids getting to depressed when they see what Ozzy and Sabbath have (or to be more precise – haven’t) done in the last 10-15 years.
