Ozzy Osbourne Turns 60 Today

Ozzy Osbourne was born on December 3, 1948 in Aston, Birmingham, UK. He is known by many as the "Godfather of Heavy Metal" and by others as "The Prince of Darkness". While Ozzy's not normally associated with hair bands, like a lot of other heavy metal bands, he had his share of hair band songs and videos in the late 80's.

In 1986, Ozzy released his album Ultimate Sin, which is considered to be his contribution to the glam rock movement of the late 80's. While a lot of hardcore Ozzy fans don't like this album, it actually spawned one of Ozzy's most successful songs on the U.S. charts.

Shot in the Dark was the first single released from the Ultimate Sin album, and it peaked at #68 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and #10 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock charts. Only Ozzy's 1992 rock ballad Mama, I'm Coming Home, charted higher (#28) on the Hot 100 charts.

In honor of Ozzy's birthday, here's a look at the music video for Shot in the Dark.
