Ozzy Osbourne has recalled his famous bat-biting incident - and likens the taste to a fast food burger.

The rocker notoriously grabbed a bat and chewed its head off during a concert in Iowa in 1982.

And Osbourne still relishes the taste - insisting it reminded him of junk food.

He tells Classic Rock magazine: "It must have been stunned by the lights or something because it just froze and I thought it was a toy. I just put it in my mouth. Then its wings started flapping and I got such a shock. I tried to pull it out too quickly and its head came off.

"It tasted all crunchy and warm... like a Ronald McDonald's."
