You’re a Star!

To a certain extent I had a terrible fear of folk music because my father was a folk singer. I associated it with my childhood which I always hated.

The front door of Ozzy Osbourne’s childhood home in Birmingham was put up for sale in 2005 because the current owner, Mr Ali Mubarrat of 14 Lodge Road, Aston, was tired of obsessive fans defacing it with graffiti. Hearing news of the sale, The Prince of Darkness himself commented that This guy is talking about selling my old front door on eBay but it’s not the Ozzy Osbourne front door. It’s been replaced. We weren’t posh enough to have glass on our door.
