According to The Pulse Of Radio, an online campaign to get Ozzy Osbourne knighted has already notched more than 21,000 signatures. A 65-year-old British fan named Helen Maidiotis has launched the petition, saying that the BLACK SABBATH singer deserves the honor for “his significant contribution to the music industry.” She added that he deserves to be knighted “not only for all his charity work but for all his years entertaining us and helping make a difference to peoples’ lives who have looked up to him for his strong will and determination to get through the many obstacles that he has come across and for that we thank you Ozzy! Helping to get him Knighted would be our gift to him.”

When asked about the campaign in a recent interview, Ozzy said, “I’ve heard about that. Getting knighted? I can’t imagine anything better… And my wife (Sharon) would become a Lady, which would be pretty cool. But I’m not gonna get upset if it doesn’t happen. I never thought I’d get further than Aston (the area of Birmingham where he was born).”
