The legendary Prince of Darkness, Ozzy Osbourne, and his wife Sharon, recently opened up to The Guardian about their decision to leave their long-standing home in America. While it would be fair to assume that the decision to move home is due to recent issues with Ozzy’s health, his wife Sharon adamantly denies it. Instead, she said:

 “I knew people would think that. It’s not. It’s just time. America has changed so drastically. It isn’t the United States of America at all. Nothing’s united about it. It’s a very weird place to live right now.”

Ozzy backed up Sharon’s sentiments, stating: “Everything’s fucking ridiculous there. I’m fed up with people getting killed every day. God knows how many people have been shot in school shootings. And there was that mass shooting in Vegas at that concert… It’s fucking crazy. And I don’t want to die in America. I don’t want to be buried in fucking Forest Lawn.” He goes on:

“I’m English. I want to be back. But saying that, if my wife said we’ve got to go and live in Timbuktu, I’ll go. But, no, it’s just time for me to come home.”

Given some other recent news, it looks like it’s the perfect time for Ozzy to return. Per a tweet shared by Khalid Mahmood, who is the Labour MP for Birmingham Perry Barr, he wrote:

I am humbly requesting Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II @RoyalFamily to bestow and honour to @BlackSabbath for their services to music. There will be a public release on 12th August 2022 at 1pm at Black Sabbath Bench, Broad St, @BBCNews @itvnews @midlands_bbc @ClassicRockMag”

Khalid Mahmood then went on to share a link to a Change.org petition regarding the request for Queen Elizabeth to honor the band. The petition includes the following:

“We humbly request that a royal honour is bestowed on the Black Sabbath rock group, who were formed in Birmingham in 1968 by guitarist Tony Iommi, drummer Bill Ward, bassist Geezer Butler and vocalist Ozzy Osbourne. They are often cited as pioneers of heavy metal music. The band helped define the genre with releases such as Black Sabbath (1970), Paranoid (1970), and Master of Reality (1971). Following the closing ceremony of the Commonwealth Games, which took place in Birmingham Perry Barr constituency, there have been requests from all over the city that Black Sabbath be recognised for its services to music and to the City of Birmingham. For all their global fame, they have kept strong links with Birmingham, demonstrated by their barnstorming surprise performance at the closing ceremony of Commonwealth Games, which was closed by His Royal Highness Prince Edward The Earl of Wessex.

“We feel that this extraordinary occasion deserves extraordinary recognition of this extraordinary group of musicians. The band’s services to music seem to have been overlooked by the usual process. We therefore seek direct intervention and support from Your Majesty to recognise the great contribution made by these fine and ground-breaking musicians, who were made in Birmingham and who have once again not just entertained Birmingham, the United Kingdom and the whole of the Commonwealth but perhaps the world.”
