It's been 37 years since the infamous bat-biting incident and Ozzy Osbourne is capitalizing on the anniversary.
To commemorate the notorious event (and one of rock's biggest lores), the singer released a limited edition plush bat with detachable head. A 12" stuffed winged thing is a play on the animal that met its cruel end on January 20, 1982 when, during a relatively unremarkable Des Moines, Iowa show, a fan tossed a live bat on stage.
Ozzy picked it up and bit down as a goof and, as he wrote in his memoir I Am Ozzy, “Immediately, though, something felt wrong. Very wrong. For a start, my mouth was instantly full of this warm, gloopy liquid, with the worst aftertaste you could ever imagine. I could feel it staining my teeth and running down my chin. Then the head in my mouth twitched. Oh fuck me, I thought. I didn’t just go and eat a fucking bat, did I?” Ozzy underwent a series of painful rabies shots after the incident.
