Ozzy Osbourne Vs Beer

(Classic Rock) A US brewer has been prevented from continuing to sell a beer named Ozzy after Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne's legal representatives stepped in.

Baltimore firm The Brewer's Art had been distributing a pale ale featuring a logo which mimics the singer's "Ozzy" knuckle tattoo, while the can was adorned with images of bats - including some with their heads bitten off.

The Brewer's Art boss Tom Creegan has reported that he received a cease-and-desist order from Osbourne's representatives, and that the beer will no longer be sold.

Meanwhile, ex Sabbath drummer Vinny Appice, who spent much of his career working with Ronnie James Dio, has said the band took on a different character when the late frontman took over from Ozzy. Read what he had to say here.
