Ozzy Osbourne Reportedly Trashed Hotel Room With Dead Shark
Ozzy Osbourne is notorious for his mind-bogglingly wild behavior both on and off stage. From biting the heads off doves and bats to snorting a line of ants, the Black Sabbath frontman’s behavior has been unpredictable to say the least, at once exhilarating (and sort of disturbing) for fans and abhorrent to PETA. According to his former Black Sabbath bandmate Tony Iommi, Osbourne apparently trashed a hotel room with a dead shark, according to NME.
Claiming that once his drug and alcohol fueled antics grew tired, Osbourne found new ways of getting a rise. With drugs always you get bored, so you must do something to one another. Like Ozzy hauling a shark through a window, dismembering it and soaking our room in blood,” Iommi told the British music magazine.
Though Osbourne was fired from the band in 1979 for excessive drug and alcohol abuse, he returned briefly in 1985 and then again for a spell from 1997-2006. Despite constantly refuting claims of a reunion of the original lineup, the band is set to make a special announcement at the end of the week. The four original members, Osbourne, Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Bill Ward, will all attend a press conference to be held on Friday November 11 at 11:11am PST in Los Angeles. To recap, that’s 11/11/11 at 11:11.
