Ozzy Osbourne ‘whacking’ cocaine with his Black Sabbath bandmates was recently detailed by Geezer Butler. Ozzy Osbourne recently revealed how he is losing weight.
“That’s probably one of the best periods of my life and the whole band’s life, and strangely enough, it started out really bad. We thought we didn’t have anything else to give any more as a band. We did [1972’s] ‘Vol. 4’ in Los Angeles and that was great, really, good time doing that, and ‘Vol. 4’ was the first time that we’ve been introduced to cocaine, so we’ve been whacking that up for a good year or something. [Laughs]
Ozzy Osbourne recently revealed what Paul McCartney did to his wife. Butler added, “It came to do ‘Sabbath Bloody Sabbath,’ the new album, and we went back to our line. It was horrible, the vibes were terrible between us, and we went back to the Record Plant where we’d done ‘Vol. 4’ – they had this big computer installed, it was the first musical computer thing that anybody had ever seen and it was in our studio where we’ve done ‘Vol. 4.’
We just couldn’t come up with anything, couldn’t write, was really weird. We thought, ‘Well, that’s it, lads, this is obviously the end of the band.’ And we came back to England and we just had a few weeks off, freshened up a bit, and we just got together and said, ‘Let’s give it one more try.’We got this place in Wales and the very first thing that Tony came up was the riff to ‘Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.'” Howard Stern recently revealed if he thinks Ozzy Osbourne’s wife is ugly after a facelift.
Ozzy Osbourne is “on the mend” and will return to the stage “soon” according to daughter Kelly Osbourne.
Kelly told the PA news agency in Los Angeles, “He’s on the mend. He’s getting there. It’s been a process, but he’s definitely getting there.”
Asked when Ozzy will return to touring, Kelly responded, “Soon, I can’t say exactly what but soon. There’s something coming up.”
Osbourne postponed his ‘No More Tours II’ tour in the spring after suffering a terrible injury after a fall at home. Osbourne is expected to resume touring in February 2020.
