On January 20th, 1982, Ozzy Osbourne, while touring for “The Diary Of The Madman” album, created the infamous bat incident that is now a legendary moment in heavy metal history. The true story goes like this…. someone in the audience had thrown what Ozzy thought was a rubber bat, onto the stage. Ozzy decides to have fun with the crowd and bites the head off of the bat. The only problem was, that it was indeed a real bat. Blood flowed out of Osbourne’s mouth as he realized that he had a made a huge mistake. Ozzy had to take rabies shots after the incident, since bats are often carriers of the 99% fatal disease in humans. Needless to say, the story made the Ozzman seem more like a true madman than ever. But it was also the kind of publicity that helped perpetuate his wild man and crazy dark side image that only helped his career in the heavy metal arena.
