There are two pages concerning Ozzy Osbourne and the character page Ozzy Osbourne is more of a stub that should be combined with the person page Ozzy Osbourne . He was a playable character in Rock Band, but that doesn't warrant a second page.

Yes it does. Real people appearing as characters in games should be separate from the actual person's page.

Agreeing with dungbootle here, this is the exact purpose of the character/person pages.

Actually it does for that very reason.

Now the question is, does he deserve the person page? Does anyone know if he's actually credited by name in any of the Rock Band games he's listed in, or is it just for them using Sabbath/Ozzy songs? Because if it's the latter, then that page should be axed.

Characters get character pages.

@iAmJohn: He's a character voice in Brutal Legend. Both pages should stay.

Wasn't he in Brutal Legend as a voice?

If someone wanted to make this argument for combining Fred Durst (person and character) I would listen, as he is appearing as himself in the games as opposed to playing a character like Ozzy did in Brutal Legend

Yep, Guardian of Metal. He's in the credits.

@Weltal: @Rappelsiini: God damn, I completely forgot Brutal Legend existed. Point made.
