The rocker is to have a Midland Metro tram named after him in his native Birmingham, England, and Ozzy will meet the caboose on Thursday (26May16).

Ozzy says, "It's a great honour to have a new tram named after me. I'm proud to be a Brummie and this means so much."

The honour comes as Ozzy fights to save his marriage following a bust-up with his wife Sharon. Reports suggest she kicked him out of the family home in Los Angeles after learning of his alleged romance with a hairdresser.

The Osbournes reunited for the launch of the Ozzfest Meets Knotfest music festival earlier this month (May16), but Sharon made it clear she was there to support her client, Ozzy Osbourne, not her husband.

Trams returned to the streets of Birmingham for the first time in more than 60 years in December (15).
