Ozzy Osbourne Could Have An Airport Named After Him

Who woulda thunk? The Prince Of Darkness could very well  have Birmingham International Airport renamed in his honor, and  why not? He would join John Lennon who had an airport named after him in Liverpool.

According to USA Today, if Big Bean Music boss Jim Simpson, who discovered Black Sabbath has his way, travelers will be flying in and out of Ozzy Osbourne International Airport, although these are not exactly the kind of “trips” Ozzy was know for.

“Ozzy might not always have been a paragon of virtue, but he is a genuine, flesh and blood Brummie,” Simpson told the Daily Mirror, using a term that residents of Birmingham have adopted to identify themselves. Many county officials like the idea of naming the airport  Councillor Philip Parkin as saying the proposal is “an interesting idea and I’ve got an open mind.” “We need to be making the most of the talent we have got and did have in this city,” he said.
