Cannot blame this one on Ozzy! He was s*%faced onstage as usual one night and some CHUMP actually tossed a REAL deceased bat onstage that night. Imagine this chump? Well, Ozzy being tanked up, thought it was a novelty store rubber bat...so...CRUNCH! Cannot blame the Ozzman. Who the HELL would think some dork would smuggle in a REAL dead bat. The folklore ensued....That "puppy" B.S. was always thought to be stupid nonsense. The Alamo wizz izz true! Hey, when one is tanked up, no matter your status, one does stupid things(regrettable?). Motley Crue will attest to the fact that Ozzy snorted a line of ANTS to prove he was crazier than Tommy Lee. Alcohol abuse is unpleasant! The living dove story IS true! It was all Sharon's idea to leave an impression on the rec execs so she had them brought in to seal the deal for the "Blizzard of Ozz" contract. Ozzy, I guess put his own spin on the "flight of doves." Sharon almost $h*t-a-brick!
