KFIX Rock News: Ozzy Featured On San Antonio’s Fiesta Medal

ozzmedal2Artpace, a San Antonio non-profit which “serves as an international laboratory for the creation and advancement of contemporary art” is featuring Ozzy Osbourne on the city’s first ever Fiesta medal.

The medal pictures Ozzy as a bat, with an upside down Alamo serving as each wing.

Artpace executive director Amanda Cruz said, “We sold out in 48 hours online. It’s all in good fun.”

The annual 10-day Fiesta festival, which wrapped up on Sunday,  dates back to the late 19th century. It began as a single event to honor the memory of the battles of The Alamo and San Jacinto.

In 1982, Ozzy was allegedly banned from ever performing in San Antonio after he was arrested for urinating near–some stories claim “on”–The Alamo.

Then, in 1992, Ozzy reportedly donated $10,000 to the Daughters of the caretakers of The Alamo, The Daughters of the Republic of Texas, before being allowed to perform again in the city.
