Ozzy Osbourne donates $10k to Louisville Percussionists

Posted by on May 11, 2015

There are tons of videos on the internet showing people covering famous metal songs in unique styles like Spawn of Possession played on a banjo or Dio’s Holy Diver bluegrassified and that impressed us all, but would you give them thousand of dollars for it? Well someone famous and wealthy did.

Some time ago, The Louisville Leopard Percussionists decided to cover “Crazy Train” and when Ozzy Osbourne saw it, he went crazy for it and decided to donate $10,000 to the non-profit organization.

The group of percussionists had previously catch the attention of other rockstars like Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page which shout-out and shared the kids effort on his Facebook page but Ozzy decided to throw some money at them cause, well, he has a lot of it.


I should probably cover one of his songs using a bagpipe to get some money too but pretty sure Red Hot Chili Pipers already did that.
