Picture of Ozzy Biting Off Bat's Head | The Official Ozzy Osbourne Site

Picture of Ozzy Biting Off Bat's Head

I have the only picture of Ozzy biting off the bat's head from the Des Moines concert on1982 (I took it as I was there). I have called his publicist with no returned calls from her. My thought is to market and sell limited edition prints that would include the newspaper articles from the show also. Does anyone on the forum know if there would be any legal ramifications from Ozzy's label or am I free to do what I want with the picture?

Thanks!

Jim

If you have the pic - post it and prove it.....otherwise GTFO.
If you stand to profit from this,I'll make it be known to the Osbourne's myself.
Time to put up or STFU.

you know why its getting worse, your life that is,because your letting it,,stand up and be accounted for your own actions--hey i read some where that were the engineers for our own destinies,,we are in control and we can engineer whta happens next,dont be down on yourself,,think positive,,at least you can try,,,.i think your life has turned to a positive-- youve joined the ozzsite,,see lifes not that bad,,, ask any ozznoid if you wish,they will say the same--we are a caring group,,well most of us...cheer up and listen to ozzy,,that always fixes me

u no....i know you've been through more, but i think i can relate to u sumwut. my life's been going to hell for a long time, u no? one bad things goes and another comes. its lik dominos, u no, gimpnoid? its kinda sad.... i mean, my friends were worried about me for a while cuz sumtin happened and i went into a deppression and hardly evur talked 2 any1 an i kept getitn in2 trouble wit my mom. my life is getting harder and harder, and i hav a heavy feeling that its gonna get severely worse very soon

dont be affraid of the dark,,in the dark you'll find me standing there holding back the wrong,in my life ive never walked in the light,but im guided by light,if you can understand that...no evil gets passed me n my friends ,there are watchers and doers and both,,but im a fringedweller.in my life ive seen things that arent explained,in aboriganal myth there is a man called the ka die chi and min min lights i have encountered both , and in this world i have walked through hell and seen the bad,,have faith in yourself and have faith in faith and you can overcome anything like i have done

oh....well, thats how many kids i want, so i guess i shouldnt take what she said for granted.... ^^ supernatural things freak the crap outta me, but i luv them. u no shows lik ghost hunters international and that show that has paranormal in it * watch it all the time and talk bout it wit my friend Tyler-Justice* but i cant remember the name.... anyways, they freak me out and i always have my thumb on the power button to my T.V. cuz im terrified that somthin freaky'll pop up onto the screen! and u no how sum ppl r scared of the dark? well...im scared of wuts IN the dark. whenever my friends spend the night at my house, they freak out when they ask me if im scared of darkness and i say wut im actually scared of. my bffl got scared and wanted to go to sleep immediatly XD it wuz funny, but i felt bad....

an thats koolio! i didnt notice.... ^w^ well, then this works perfectly for me, cuz i post comments all the time XD

dont be so keen to listen to a fortune teller,.they tell you what you want to hear mostimes,,im a beleiver of the other side but only a few really have that power,,and anyone who sells their so called gift doesnt have a gift in the first place,if i was given such power i wouldnt sell it,i would give it away.......and see now your a fan look at how many posts u have,,when you have wrtitten over 100 things you'll be a mega fan,,and i spose i have to wait till i get 10000 post before mine changes again,well im hopeing,, i wouldnt mind mine saying legendary fan

0.0 whoa, seriously?! dude, i kinda agree with these people. I mean, i know i'm just a kid, but i really think that it's just best for you to just post it. You might not have thought that other people at the Des Moines concert in 1982 might have taken a picture? *don't yell at me, pls!* there could be hundreds of pics of Ozzy biting off a bats head on the net right now! So....don't get a head full of hot air, okay? v.v plus, i think it's kinda stupid to sell a pic of a music legend for profit. and i think it's mean! X<

This guy is full of s***. I bet he took the pic with a disposable camera - right? This is the same ass clown that talked about this s*** awhile ago over at RRtk. By the way,disposable cameras came out in /86 - do the math.
Either put up or shut the f*** up!!!

"How many time's can they fill me with lie's and I'd listen,again.....Twisting the truth and they're playing around with my head,okay....."

The picture has a 98% likely hood to leak onto the internet if you sell it anyway so why not just share it?

Because I thought limited edition prints would be an awesome commemorative item for such a memorable event. I own a large format printing company so I can keep the creativity and printing in house an under my control. I've also had a lot of other people giving me positive input to do such a thing. This is not about becoming a "millionaire" from the picture, it's about presenting it in the correct light... This was one of the last show that Randy Rhodes did (which he kicked ass)...

If you yourself took it with your own camera it is yours to do with as you like with it.

Tony Iommi = God, his arch angels are Ozzy Osbourne, Dave Walker, Ronnie James Dio, Ian Gillan, Dave Donato, Glenn Hughes, Ray Gillen, Tony Martin, and Bill Ward (bassically everyone who sang on a song labeled Black Sabbath)

please just share it-whats the good of an amazing bit of music history if the people who care about it can never see it! you know the right way.....

Leave me alone dont want your promises no more.
Cos rock n roll is my religion and my law.
Won't ever change, may think it's strange.
You can't kill rock n roll, it's here to stay.......

I agree with madozzyfan..

The guy has a piece of history, sell it...make it special

Again I align myself with OjZoZhYn, & say its your pic, do with it what ya please, as for me I have to say yes I would take a peek at it if it was available for free, via the net, but to actually purchase it, I would have to give that a "NO"...

If your going to celebrate something great that Ozzy has done/accomplished by sharing a photo of it, I don't think the dove, or the bat thing is on top of either Ozzy's, or my own list of cool s*** he's done, but thats just what this old metal head thinks..

Later my peeps!

<cite>"Being sober on a bus is, like, totally different than being drunk on a bus."</cite> - <strong>Ozzy Osbourne</strong>

ya share it its yurs to do with wut u want.....

where is the friggen picture

I'll have a website up by first of the year with hats, t-shirts, 8x10, 11x14 & 16x20 prints available for sale. I will post it here first when it is up!

If it is a really good quality shirt, I might think about buying a T-Shirt...but I want to see the picture first.

I 'm not sure about any legal ramifications GYM, but i'd definatley love to to buy a copy of the photo, if its good quality. I'm into Ozzy fro his music first and foremost, but as this event has gone down in folklore of Ozzy history then I'd love to see a photo of the actual incident. Can you actually see the bat or is Ozzy just a blur in the distance.

gym,

Sounds like you have a very special bit of rock and roll infamy that a lot of us fans would love to share.

THink the idea of a limited edition print is a great idea and I would love to be one of the first to purchase such and item.

Please contact me on tr_eight@hotmail.com with details of how to do such a thing.

Thanks,

Kip

Thanks for the positive input! Yes you can tell that there is a bat in his mouth. It was totally surreal the way it happened! He also had to go through a series of rabie shots after the show!

Typical...someone has a rare picture and just wants to make some profit. C'mon a**hole, post it in the picture section like a real fan.

Go f*** yourself tough guy! I put this posting out in good faith but I can see caliber of "fans" I'm dealing with...
