Ozzy Osbourne's Yamaha

As anyone who’s ever seen an episode of the Osbourne family’s reality series can vouch, Ozzy Osbourne has an amazing knack for turning a negative into a positive?a streak he’ll attempt to further later this fall when he auctions off the all-terrain vehicle that nearly killed him in an accident some four years back. The Wizard is hoping to raise roughly 3,000 bucks in the auction?which will also include a number of other items from the Osbourne household, some of which, we’d wager, have been soiled by Oz and Sharon’s not-quite-housebroken menagerie (by which we mean their doggies, not those irascible kids). The still-shredded condition of the vehicle, a Yamaha “Banshee” Quad Bike, attests to its authenticity, and the promise that proceeds from the sale will go to a cancer charity verifies the sincerity of the singer’s effort.The two-day sale will be held at Gibson Guitar Showroom in Beverly Hills, CA on Friday and Saturday, November 30 and December 1. ?David Sprague
