Ozzy Osbourne Once Banned From San Antonio, Now Celebrated There

(hennemusic) Ozzy Osbourne is featured on San Antonio's first-ever Fiesta medal. The medal was designed by artist Jim Mendiola and Ruben Ortiz-Torres; it pictures Ozzy as a bat, with an upside down Alamo serving as each wing.

Ozzy has a well-known history in San Antonio. He was banned from ever performing in the city after he was arrested in 1982 for urinating near the Alamo.

In 1992, Ozzy reportedly donated $10,000 to the Daughters of the Republic of Texas � caretakers of The Alamo, before being allowed to perform again in San Antonio. "We all have done things in our lives that we regret," said Ozzy at the time. "I am deeply honored that the people of San Antonio have found it in their hearts to have me back. I hope that this donation will show that I have grown up." See a photo of it here.
