Ozzy Osbourne paid a visit to the Alamo to film a show for the History Channel and reportedly apologize for a 1982 urination incident. 

Ozzy Osbourne fans crowded the musician draped in his signature long black hair and sunglasses as he emerged from a black SUV at the corner of Alamo Plaza with his son Jack on Thursday afternoon. The two were followed by a film crew and surrounded by police.

As they stopped in front of the Alamo and Jack Osbourne asked for crowd control. “We want to know the great history of this great building right?” Jack Osbourne said to the crowd who replied with a resounding ‘Yes.'” He continued, “I need you to help us help you.”

Jack and Ozzy Osbourne are filming a TV show for the History Channel visiting various world landmarks. Osbourne did not make an apology outside but instead heard a history lesson from a guide wearing period clothing. The Osbournes slipped into the Alamo and did not make a public exit.

Fans waited for hours as his arrival time was kept secret. Long time Ozzy fan James Flores and his son carried near mint-condition albums in hopes of getting them signed. He says an apology is not needed.

“I don’t think he really owes an apology, he’s already apologized I don’t know how many times and paid a sizable check to the Daughters of the Republic [of Texas] already. I think he’s kind of already paid for what he’s done.”

Osbourne was arrested in 1982 for urinating on a monument on the Alamo grounds. He was banned from performing in the Alamo City but it was lifted several years later.
