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.

Did Alice cooper eat a bat head?

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.

Did Ozzy osbourne bite the head off bat?

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.
