Yes he did, at one of his concerts in Des Moines, Iowa. Accidentally. At certain shows Ozzy would throw raw meat at the crowd before the band started playing. Every now and again the fans would throw stuff back. They would throw raw meat and rubber animals. One fan threw a live bat on stage. The bat, stunned by the stage lights, did not move a muscle. Ozzy, thinking it was a rubber bat, bit the head off. After this he was promptly rushed to the hospital and was given multiple shots to prevent rabies. He also bit the head of a dove off during a CBS meeting, but this wasn't on accident. He bit the head off of the dove to induce a sort of shock factor, because he was getting angry with the managers and producers. He was also very intoxicated and/or under the influence at the time, as he explains in his recent autobiography; 'I AM OZZY'. Many critics believe that this helped to spark popularity when he began his solo career.
the head of a bat
On 20 January 1982
No. A dove and a bat, yes; a canary, no.
No. He's bitten the head off of a dove and a bat, but not a rat.
January 20, 1982 at Des Moines, Iowa. That memorable event was actually a mistake. Ozzy thought the bat was rubber!
i could be wrong, but i believe it was Ozzy Osbourne. source: in the movie "Little Nicky" he appears to bite a bat's head off..
Because he was drunken and high and thought it was fake.
No he did not. He bit the head off a bat, thinking it was rubber. It was not.
Ozzy osbourne Ozzy osbourne
At the time when Ozzy Osbourne bit the real bat, he had the band name Ozzy Osbourne, not Black Sabbath.
Yes he did its on Youtube. Type in Ozzy osbourne eating a bat.
Believe it or not, he indeed bit the head off the bat and had to have extensive rabies shots. Prior to that he did the same thing to a dove. The bat affair told by Ozzy himself, is one night at a concert, they were thr0wing plastic bats and he was baiting the heads off. Somebody from the public threw a real bat and Ozzy being haigh bit his head off.
no he got rabies shots and thats about it , he's 63 next week on the 3rd
No. Alice Cooper has never eaten a bat head. However, Ozzy Osbourne (who is 1 year younger than Alice), has "eaten" a bat head. It happened like this: Ozzy was a bit high on drugs and was doing a concert somewhere when some fans brought in a live bat to the concert. They threw the bat onstage and Ozzy mistook it for a fake rubber bat. So he figured he might as well bite the head off. Well, that is just what he did. Needless to say, he spit out the head when he tasted blood.
I don't think Ozzy bites the head off of bats any more. I heard that that was just a myth that it was really a dove. His wife used the dove to soften his image, but then he bite the dove's head off.
No. After an incident in which Ozzy bit the head off of a bat (a joke gone horribly wrong during a concert) Ozzy was rushed to the hospital and was given proper Rabies shots.
No the bat was dizzy and Ozzy thought it was rubber because it wasn't moving.
For one thing, he bit the head off a real bat during a performance!
Yes, however it was blown way out of proportion and made to seem as if Ozzy sacrifices and consumes bats on a daily basis. This is ridiculous. The occurrence was a one-time thing that happened during one of Ozzy's shows. While heavily intoxicated, he bit the head of a bat which was thrown onto the stage by someone in the audience. He later stated that he had thought the bat was fake until after he had already bit into it.
