Metallica Intimidated Ozzy Osbourne In Front Of Famous Actor


Comedian and actor Jim Breuer was interviewed on SiriusXM to discuss a variety of metal and rock related topics. Here Breuer discusses how Ozzy Osbourne once felt downright timid in comparison to Metalica during a show that the former SNL cast member attended. Alternative Nation reporter Mike Mazzarone transcribed Breuer’s comments.

Breuer: So I think of that moment, I can literally, I remember everything about that moment watching them and I felt, and it’s crazy to compare but almost the way people felt when the first time they saw The Beatles live. They knew something different was happening. I saw Metallica that night, the way people reacted and the way people reacted like:

“What the hell is going on?”

Breuer: People were nuts right now and the arena was packed. No one was in there for the opening band

Host: Of course.

Breuer: I feel like they blew Ozzy [Osbourne]. Ozzy was on the side going 

“I’m not gonna be able to follow this, this is madness! Throwing chairs? This is nutso!” 

Breuer: Now, I’m torn, it’s crazy. 

In related news, Ozzy Osbourne’s son Jack Osbourne has reached out to actress Selma Blair after her multiple sclerosis (MS) diagnosis.

Osbourne told People, “I get a lot out of talking to people in kind of the same spot as me,” Osbourne, who also has the disabling disease, told the publication. “I find it kind of comforting knowing you’re not alone. That was really the crux of the conversation I had with Selma.”


“MS is so different with everyone. I have the same disease she does but we are affected completely different by it. We spoke about what I do, my regimen. The things I’ve done in the past with it.”

In March, Blair shared a snapshot of a recent MRI.

“Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often disabling disease that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body,” according to the National Mulitple Sclerosis Society. Common symptoms include fatigue, numbness, pain, walking difficulties and vision problems, among others.

Jack Osbourne recently told Jenny McCarthy on SiriusXM that his father is doing ‘really well’ after canceling his 2019 tour due to health issues.

“He’s doing really well. He’s good. He’s getting back on his feet, so he’s good.”

He told People, “He’s doing good. He’s back to being his cynical old self, [which] is always a good sign. When he’s complaining about mundane things, you know he’s good. Yeah, he’s back to normal. When everything on TV sucks and everything in the house is broken, he’s in a good spot.”
