OZZY OSBOURNE Says His World Stopped When JOHN LENNON Died

MonstersAndCritics.com reports that Ozzy Osbourne says his "world stopped" when he found out that John Lennon had been shot.

Osbourne has revealed he "couldn't describe" how he felt when he was told THE BEATLES legend had been assassinated.

He told Britain's BBC Radio 1 "Legends" show: "The world stopped for me when Sharon told me that John Lennon had been shot in New York. I can't even describe how I felt.

"If he was a politician, a soldier, anything else, it would be, "Oh yeah, well he is in that kind of business," but the amount of joy and hope that he gave people was just remarkable."

Ozzy, 59, also said he would have loved to see THE BEATLES perform, and thinks they would have reunited if all four members — John Lennon, Ringo Starr, Sir Paul McCartney and the late George Harrison — were still alive.

He added: "I often daydream about whether they would ever have reformed. I never saw THE BEATLES, I saw Paul McCartney play but never saw THE BEATLES — I would have loved to have seen them play."

Watch Ozzy Osbourne singing a version of THE BEATLES classic "In My Life" — with Slash on guitar — at the 77th Royal Variety Performance on November 21, 2005 in Cardiff, Wales, UK:
