Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Adds Ozzy Osbourne

Legendary BLACK SABBATH lead singer Ozzy Osbourne will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, a class that also includes folk-rockers Dave Matthews Band, Mary J. Blige, Cher, Foreigner, A Tribe Called Quest, Kool & The Gang and singer-guitarist Peter Frampton.

Alexis Korner, John Mayall and Big Mama Thornton earned the Musical Influence Award, while the late Jimmy Buffett, MC5, Dionne Warwick and Norman Whitfield will get the Musical Excellence Award. Pioneering music executive Suzanne de Passe won the Ahmet Ertegun Award.

“Rock ‘n’ roll is an ever-evolving amalgam of sounds that impacts culture and moves generations,” John Sykes, chairman of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, said in a statement. “This diverse group of inductees each broke down musical barriers and influenced countless artists that followed in their footsteps.”

Ozzy is being recognized finally for his extraordinary contribution to the rock music world as a solo artist, already having been inducted into RRHOF as a member of BLACK SABBATH.

The induction ceremony will be held Oct. 19 at the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland, Ohio. It will stream live on Disney+ with an airing on ABC at a later date and available on Hulu the next day.
