Ozzy Osbourne was given the key to the city of West Palm Beach, Florida on Friday, February 26 by Mayor Lois Frankel, who even noted in her remarks that she was a big fan of "The Osbournes", the VH1 reality show which introduced the world to his wife Sharon and his kids Jack and Kelly.
"We love Sharon," Frankel said.
According to The Palm Beach Post, Osbourne accepted the key and made a few quick remarks of his own, including one about seeing if Ozzfest — which was bumped down from a tour to a single-date show in Dallas in 2008, and then canceled in 2009 — could return to Palm Beach County this year.
Hundreds cheered and chanted "Ozzy! Ozzy! Ozzy!" as the rocker retreated to his SUV and took advantage of a Florida Highway Patrol escort to his next stop, the Barnes & Noble Booksellers at Legacy Place in Palm Beach Gardens, where he would sign copies of his new autobiography, "I Am Ozzy".
