In a new Metal Hammer interview, legendary Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne discussed looking for ‘crumbs’ of cocaine on the floor.
“Turning 70 doesn’t bother me. Whether I feel happy, sad or mad, it’s happening. I consider myself very lucky. There but for the grace of God go I, you know? I tried to do everything to the absolute fucking max when I was doing it. I’d be looking around for crumbs of coke on the floor, you know? I’m not proud of that, but I’m a survivor, I suppose.”
Ozzy Osbourne is ‘complaining’ and ‘miserable’ after a doctor diagnosed him with pneumonia recently, and he was admitted to the intensive care unit.
Asked how Ozzy is feeling almost five weeks after he was admitted to the the intensive care ward of Keck Hospital of University of Southern California, his Jack told Access in a recent interview, “Well, if this gauges where he’s at, he’s complaining a lot and he’s back to his normal routine. So everything’s A-okay there.”
Ozzy’s wife Sharon said, “That’s always a good sign, when he complains and he’s miserable. Then you know it’s good.” Jack added, “It’s when he’s happy and skipping around. You’re, like, ‘There’s something really wrong here. Call the doctor.'”
Ozzy Osbourne was recently forced to cancel more shows due to orders from his doctor.
