Rock Hall Snubs: Ozzy Osbourne

With four decades of arenas and stadiums filled from the Meadowlands to Moscow, and with his MTV reality home invasion turning himself and and his wife/manager Sharon Osbourne into a dystopian 21st century Ozzie and Harriet,  the Godfather of Heavy Metal, Ozzy Osbourne  only recently was granted induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by virtue of having been Black Sabbath‘s original lead singer/ lyricist for their first seminal genre-defining ten years. But just Ozzy’s first two solo albums, Blizzard of Ozz  and Diary of a Madman  , sold more than all of those Black Sabbath albums combined. Years eligible: 15 . Nominated: 0.
