“Tiffany Murray, the individual who purportedly witnessed Osbourne’s peculiar actions in the ’70s, expressed that he genuinely frightened her to the core.”

Ozzy Osbourne may have sung about being “Under the Graveyard” a few years ago, but it seems he was already making nocturnal visits to such places long before that. The revelation emerged on May 16 in The Times, which detailed how, during the ’70s, the former Black Sabbath frontman, aged 75, was reportedly observed dancing and howling among the gravestones near Rockfield Studios, a recording studio located near Monmouth in south Wales. In an interview with the publication, Tiffany Murray, daughter of Rockfield’s former resident cordon bleu chef, Joan, recounted a night when she awoke to witness Osbourne’s unsettling behavior.

“He truly terrified me,” she remarked. “Even today, encountering Ozzy Osbourne in a graveyard at night would be the stuff of nightmares.”

“I still have the three little felt hippos, although the eyes are missing,” she recollected. “That incident taught me that rock stars have the freedom to make significant mistakes but also the means to make substantial apologies.”

Murray also recounted how Osbourne would occasionally be spotted in the French windows at Rockfield Studios, wielding a shotgun.

“It seemed to be therapeutic for him,” she remarked casually. “I doubt you could get away with that nowadays given current health and safety regulations.”

In a recent interview with Metal Hammer late last year, Osbourne revealed his readiness to return to touring after a series of spinal surgeries, culminating in what he referred to as his “final surgery” in September. “I’m feeling OK – it was just dragging on,” the singer disclosed in his health update. “I thought I’d be back on my feet months ago, I just couldn’t get used to this mode of living, constantly having something wrong. I can’t walk properly yet, but I’m not in any pain anymore, and the surgery on my spine went great.”

The newly announced inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame also expressed his desire to produce “one more album” before retiring.

In January, Osbourne’s wife and manager Sharon disclosed that the rock icon is organizing two final concerts in his hometown of Birmingham, England, as a farewell gesture to his fans. “He won’t tour again but we are planning on doing two more shows to say goodbye as he feels like ‘I have never said goodbye to my fans and I want to say goodbye properly,’” the former The Talk co-host, 71, shared, as reported by Rolling Stone UK. However, specific dates for these shows have not yet been confirmed or scheduled.

“We will do it in Aston Villa where Ozzy is from,” she added. “His voice is still absolutely perfect. And all the time he has been off, he still does his singing lessons, so his voice is perfect. And he can joke yeah.”

Murray — who penned a memoir titled My Family and Other Rock Stars about her experiences growing up at Rockfield — mentioned that the “Crazy Train” singer swiftly made amends for unintentionally frightening her as a child by generously gifting her a van filled with toys from Harrods.
