On This Day



On This Day… Ozzy And The Bat Incident!

Written by: George Chittenden : 30 Jun 2019

It was on this day, 20th January, back in 1981, when rock star Ozzy Osbourne bit a bat’s head off live on stage. The Black Sabbath frontman was performing, in Des Moines, Iowa, during the height of his drug problem when a member of the audience tossed what Ozzy thought was a rubber bat on-stage.

Thinking it was rubber he bit its head off as a stunt, only to find it was real and alive. The bat, in its defence bit Ozzy Osbourne back, forcing him to be treated for rabies.

The previous year, at an L.A. meeting of Columbia Records Executives, Ozzy had bitten the head off a live dove.

We promote history by...

offering free articles and videos, providing free history experiences for children in schools and on weekends. Next year we will be visiting hospitals and providing unforgettable experiences to children who really need it and give them a chance to forget their condition, their treatment and their reality. Please join others who support our free projects by giving a small donation. We can only continue our great work with your help.
