Whether you think his music sounds at all like anything The Beatles ever did, Ozzy Osbourne is sure he would have had no career in music were it not for the Fab Four.

The Black Sabbath frontman, who is virtually synonymous with heavy metal, specifically credits The Beatles' "She Loves You" with igniting his love of music.

Osbourne recalled the first time he heard The Beatles while speaking on behalf of the End The Silence campaign by the Hope And Homes For Children charity. 

"I remember exactly where I was," Osbourne says of the first time he heard the song. "I was walking down Witton Road in Aston, I had a blue transistor radio and when that song came on, I knew from then on what I wanted to do with my life.

“This was so brand new and there was just a great feeling it gave me. Then I became an avid Beatles fan – they were great."

The singer says it changed his "whole world." 

“I owe my career to them because they gave me the desire to want to be in the music game.”

Osbourne says a wall in the bedroom of his childhood home was plastered with Beatles posters.  

End The Silence campaign encourages artists to discuss things music that made a positive difference in their lives as children.
