Tommy Lee Was Appalled by Ozzy Osbourne’s ’80s Debauchery
In the new documentary ‘God Bless Ozzy Osbourne,’ Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee reveals that even he was appalled at the level of debauchery the Prince of Darkness enjoyed while on the road in the ’80s.
During the documentary, Lee, no stranger to hard living himself, admits that he tried to get Ozzy Osbourne back to the hotel one night for some rest while on tour. Apparently, things went downhill fast.
“I’m pushing him into his room… and he takes a s— right on the floor,” says Lee in the film. “…I turned around and saw him smearing s— all over the walls. I thought, this is my chance to leave. I pinned it out of there! I thought, ‘This is some next level s—. I’m old, taking a s— in the toilet!’”
Mötley Crüe opened for Ozzy on his ‘Bark at the Moon’ tour in 1984.
Osbourne’s son Jack is one of the key producers of the documentary, which recently debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City.
