Online Petition To Knight Ozzy Osbourne Led By Aussie Fan

An Australian fan of Ozzy Osbourne is trying to get the Prince of Darkness knighted by the Queen of England. Helen Maidiotis started the campaign to have Ozzy knighted via the online petition host Causes.

"Ozzy has been an inspiration to many great musicians over the last 40 years," Maidiotis wrote on her Facebook page. "He is a credit to his country and I believe that a knighthood for Ozzy is one well deserved and long overdue."

So far 260 people have signed the petition.

Ozzy would first have to be nominated for knighting. Nominations are divided into subject areas and assessed by eight different committees. Their recommendations are then forwarded to a selection committee that provides a finalist list to the Queen. The Queen formally approves the list of recipients.
