If you could go to lunch with anyone, living or dead, who would it be and why? If I could go to lunch with anyone, I would pick Ozzy Osbourne because I've read a lot of books about him and the bands he was a part of. This opened me up to how interesting his life is and I would love to just sit there and listen to him talk more about his experiences.
