Last week we asked if anyone had a question for Ozzy Osbourne. Our entertainment correspondent was speaking with Team Ozzy (the Prince of Darkness is out promoting his new book, “Trust Me, I’m Dr. Ozzy: Advice From Rock’s Ultimate Survivor,” out yesterday) and felt he could get them answered. He did it!
So without further adieu, here’s advice from Ozzy for tumblr.
What bands he currently up to or on loop on his head? :D”
Believe it or not, but I still listen to The Beatles. Nothing else comes close, man.
What’s it like to be married to ‘SHARON’ Osbourne?
A lot f—-ing easier than it is to be married to me.
What’s your favorite children’s book?
Anything with pictures. I’m very dyslexic, so I ain’t exactly one to be reading the Harry Potter books to my grandkids. They’d be drawing a f—-ing pension by the time we got to the end of the first chapter.
If you’ve been on a bender and suddenly need to sober up, is it wise to do more cocaine, or less?
Well, in my experience, people with big coke habits don’t usually snort a line to sober up—when they’re high, they use beer to help ’em come down. The problem for me was, there wasn’t enough beer on the f—-ing planet to bring me down from the amount of s—- I was putting up my nose. Unfortunately, the only real way to sober up is to wait for the alcohol to leave your bloodstream. Either that or build a time machine and go back to the day before you started drinking.
How is he still alive? After so many drugs?
As I said before—luck. I mean, I was once in the back of a tour bus that got hit by a fucking plane. Six more inches, and I’d have been a goner, as would Sharon. Not that I get any comfort from that, ’cos one of my best friends in the world was killed that day. God bless his soul.
That’s it kids. Key Ozzy learnings? Be patient & get lucky! There are more of Ozzy’s answers on the Beast, these are just those sent in by tumblr. Go check ‘em out.
