Ozzy Osbourne’s stolen original Blizzard Of Ozz gold disc returned by superfan in bizarre twist of fate

Metal Hammer

Apart from that one time Death played there in the 90s, Preston, Lancashire hasn’t got much widely acknowledged metal cred, despite spawning 80s thrashers Xentrix and recent tech-death slime-lords Slugdge. It’s always been a passionate, albeit nuclear, scene but thanks to dedicated crate digger and lifelong Ozzy Osbourne fan Mark Sandwell, the city now has another legendary folktale to add to its heavy metal history. 

Flashback 11 years to 2010. Mark, a devout fan of metal, punk, hardcore, and a record collecting obsessive with an oft-trodden lunchbreak vinyl hunting trail was doing his usual rounds of city centre record stores and market stalls when he discovered something most unusual: an original, framed gold disc of Ozzy Osbourne’s 1980 classic Blizzard Of Ozz, stolen – unbeknownst to Mark – from Ozzy years ago.
