Did Ozzy Osbourne really eat a bat?

One of the most famous tales in Rock and Roll history is that Ozzy Osbourne bit the head of a bat during a concert. It’s true, but the musician later said that he thought it was a rubber toy, not a real animal. The incident happened back in 1982 in Des Moines, Iowa when a fan threw a real bat on stage.


According to Osbourne in the booklet to the 2002 edition of Diary of a Madman, the bat was not only alive but managed to bite him, resulting in Osbourne being treated for rabies.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
