OZZY OSBOURNE is following in the footsteps of SIR ELTON JOHN by writing a spectacular musical about Russian mystic GRIGORY RASPUTIN.
The BLACK SABBATH rocker is fascinated by the notorious 'Mad Monk' and is determined to create a theatrical sensation based on Rasputin's life - particularly after watching John's new BILLY ELLIOT musical on London's West End.
He explains, "I was inspired to write it after I saw a BBC documentary about Rasputin.
"As for Billy Elliot, I went to see it the other night and it was f**king great."
