This Day in Music: December 3rd
Born on this day in 1948 was John Michael Osbourne, also known as Ozzy Osbourne. The young artist would join Black Sabbath.In his solo career, Ozzy Osbourne would reach number 20 on the UK singles chart with “Shot in the Dark.” He would also have his own TV show “The Osbournes” on MTV.
And then in 1976,a giant, inflatable, 40-foot pig was seen floating over the city of London. Nicknamed “Algie”, the pig was being photographed for Pink Floyd’s Animals album when it broke from its moorings.
Jumping ahead to 2014, Ed Sheeran was named the “Most Streamed Artist” in the world by Spotify. At the age of 23, the artist may have been thinking out loud as he had more than 860 million streams on Spotify, beating Eminem and Coldplay.
