Premise and POD

March 18-20, 1982: Ozzy Osbourne, former lead vocalist of Black Sabbath and currently engaged in a successful solo career played yet another show with his band in Knoxville, Tennessee. They were due to perform in a festival in Orlando, Florida on March 19. They stopped in Leesburg, Florida after driving for much of the night. Randy Rhoads was invited to take a flight, but declined. As a result, the second flight of March 19 never flew. After performing yet another amazing performance, Ozzy Osbourne decided to indulge in tremendous amounts of alcohol. His drunken antics were well known. He had urinated publically on a cenotaph across from the Alamo only a month prior. Unfortunately for him, he partied a little too hard. He fell asleep and choked on his own vomit. He was found the following morning (March 20) by Rudy Sarzo.
