Black Sabbath Had Drugs Flown In On ‘Private Plane’
Ozzy Osbourne has been clean and sober for 90 days his wife said in a recent interview. It’s a wonder he’s alive at all.
In the late 70’s and early 80’s the drug scene among the most affluent rock and roll stars shifted dramatically from alcohol and weed over nighters to week long cocaine binges. For those that could afford it. For some, see Black Sabbath, they didn’t mess around. When they ran out of cocaine they just had gabs of the stuff flown in on private jet. And Black Sabbath was doing it by the boat loads. And Ozzy, since he didn’t have to play an instrument or rehearse would have half a day black outs. “”I didn’t believe it when they said I had blackouts. I’d look at my watch and it would say four o’clock. Then I’d look again and it would say 9.30. I’d totally forget where I’d been or what I’d done.
”But then you don’t think about that before.” http://us.news-republic.com/Web/ArticleWeb.aspx?regionid=1&articleid=9868656.
Black Sabbath is set to release their first full set of new music, both on cd and vinyl, in 33 years called ’13’.
