Today (December 3) is Ozzy Osbourne’s birthday, and with the announcement of the 2019 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class just around the corner, this is the perfect time to look back on when Black Sabbath was inducted in 2006.
When the nominees for the 2019 induction class of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame were announced, much was made of Stevie Nicks’ nomination. If inducted as a solo artist, Nicks would make history as the first female performer to be a double inductee. (Nicks was inducted as part of Fleetwood Mac in 1998.)
Benjamin Franklin is wrong. There are three things in this world that can be said to be certain: Death, taxes and rock fans losing their sh*t every year when the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announces the nominees for their next induction class.
