The Jesus freaks were the worst. While the 'Suicide Solution' case was going through the courts they followed me around everywhere. They would picket my shows with signs that read, 'The Anti-Christ Is Here'. And they'd always be chanting: 'Put Satan behind you! Put Jesus in front of you!' One time, I made my own sign - a smiley face with the words 'Have a Nice Day' - and went out and joined them. They didn't even notice.

I've got many, many demons that affect me on many, many levels. A few years ago, I was convinced of that - I thought I truly was possessed by the devil.

I finally came to the decision that I couldn't do it like that anymore. So I surrendered to that. I did (the Sabbath reunion tour) without anything - cigarettes, tobacco, dope, anything. And I had so much more fun without it. more...

And I never missed one concert. In 89 shows, I think I did one a bit suspect show. In the old days, I'd pull gigs left, right and center because I was too f - - up. more...

There was a cinema called The Orient outside the community centre where we rehearsed in Six Ways, and whenever it showed a horror film the queue would go all the way down the street and around the corner.

It's just human nature - isn't it? - to be more attracted to something that's taboo. If someone tells you not to smoke, you wanna smoke. If they say, 'Don't do drugs,' you wanna do drugs. That's why I've always thought that the best way to stop people taking drugs is to legalise the f**king things. It would take people about five seconds to realise that being an addict is a terribly unattractive and pathetic way to be, whereas at the moment it still has that kind of rebel cool vibe to it, y'know? more...

My stay in Camp Betty was the longest I'd been without drink or drugs in my adult life.

Do you know what causes low voter turnout in America? It's the result of having the fate of our nation at stake.

It took a lot of water to down just that f-king bat's head, let me tell you. It's still stuck in my f-king throat, after all these years. People all over the world say, 'You're the guy who kills creatures? You still do it? You do it every night?' It happened f-king once, for Christ's sake. more...

Nobody tells me f-k all! more...

There is something f-king unbelievable about seeing all of the fans go crazy and chanting 'Ozzy!' I would pay to see them.. more...

When I was doing drugs and alcohol, I thought I'll have a drink and a line of this and I'll smoke this. I didn't go, 'Then I'm going to go out and get drunk, come back strangle my wife and wake up in jail on charges of attempted murder,' but that's what happened. I'm not telling people what to do.

I do miss the social aspect of sitting in a pub with a pint but you know what when I get down to it I never went for a pint. I went to a pub to get f**ked up. If it was just going for a pint that would be ok but once I start I just can't stop. more...

As I'm getting older a lot of my friends I used to go out and party with, they're all dead. The fact that I've been through that, I'm not proud of the fact that I've been through all that, but it's part of my journey. I'm lucky to be alive. I'm lucky to be playing music. more...

I can't change the past, but I can try to make a better future for me ... more...

I'm into rock'n'roll because rock'n'roll, to me, means freedom. more...

Most guys my age are boring human beings. They sit in bars, get drunk, and then go home to tell their kids the way to rule their lives, while they're absolutely stewed out of their brains. more...

I don't forget what I used to do and so I can't justifiably say to my kid, "Don't you do that," when I used to do it myself. more...

I'll always be an outrageous character. more...

A Christian man is a man who is within himself, who puts out good vibes. more...

I open the door for old ladies, I help old ladies across the road. I do a show for leukemia every year, but I don't broadcast that because it's against my image. more...

Mind you, it's all bullshit with wine, isn't it? It's just f**king vinegar with a fizz, no matter what the tasters say. more...

The most unbelievable thing about my behaviour is that I was convinced it was entirely f**king normal. more...

All rehab can do is tell you what's wrong with you and then suggest ways for you to get better. more...

I think war is just part of human nature. And I'm fascinated by human nature - especially the dark side. I always have been. It doesn't make me a Devil worshipper, no more than being interested in Hitler makes me a Nazi. I mean, if I'm a Nazi, how come I married a woman who's half Jewish? more...

You've got to try and take things to the next level, or you'll just get stuck in a rut. more...

The power of people, when they focus on something positive, never fails to amaze me. more...

I used to get upset by people not understanding me, but I've made a career out of it now. more...

Life's not all about money. more...

I feel joy when I do a great show. I get fun out of making other people happy. I'm a terminal people-pleaser. I suppose that's why I'm a frontman. more...

Be good and honest to your fellow man and try to do something good for somebody - thet's my philosophy. more...

I am a raging alcoholic, but I don't want my kids to do the same. more...

I love you all; I love you more than life itself, but you're all fucking mad! more...

We are not going to continue until we hear the fucking roof rattle. more...

I like the word fuck. Fucking deal with it and move on to the first fucking question you have. more...

I push this one button and the shower goes on and I think, where the fuck am I? more...

I live in a 9 million dollar turd. more...

We're the Osbournes, and I love it. more...

I hate these fucking stretch bastards junk pimp mobiles! more...

Turn that thing off, its driving me mad! more...

International rock star - gravy maker extraordinaire. more...

You don't need to hire a dog therapist, you just need to wake up at 7 am and open the fucking door! more...

Well, its not that bad. I thought she was going to show me a picture of uhhhh...an eagle on her ass or something. more...

All you have to do is say Fuck Off when the vagina doctor calls. more...

You haven't been playing doctors and nurses have you? more...

Its like Dr. Doolittle in this fucking house here. more...

No we won't - no we won't break the law Sharon. more...

Weather in Afghanistan, 2000 degrees and cloudy. What the fuck am I doing? I'm stuck on the weather channel. AHHH! more...

How the fuck you feed a tree?...What...you put a ham sandwich on the tree? more...

I like warming my butt by the fire. more...

Fuck! Go to Alaska! No, no, no, no. You fucking asshole ocean! No! more...

I've had this TV for 7 years, this is how it works. Power on - it comes on. Simple clicker, volume control - piece of piss. Works every time.... what the fuck's this? What am I doing? JACK!! more...

I've done a lot worse than jump off piers, son. Like throw a television out the window. more...

Nobody tells me fuck all! more...

This will end in tears. more...

I have no regrets except that I wasn't up to keep Randy (Rhoads) from getting on that plane. more...

It took a lot of water to down just that fucking bat's head, let me tell you. It's still stuck in my fucking throat, after all these years. People all over the world say, 'You're the guy who kills creatures? You still do it? You do it every night?' It happened fucking once, for Christ's sake. more...

When we did that album (Vol. 4) it was like one big Roman orgy-we'd be in the Jacuzzi all day doing coke, and every now and then we'd get up to do a song. more...

There is something fucking unbelievable about seeing all of the fans go crazy and chanting 'Ozzy!' I would pay to see them.. more...

When you're young, you're stupid. You do silly things. I did it (the O-Z-Z-Y tattoo across his knuckles) when I was 14. I was in jail for something. I could have had it removed, but why? It's my trademark. People stop me and say, 'Let me have a look at your hand. more...

The idea of a band nowadays is 5 pretty boys, one with a tattoo, one with a shaved head, and on and on. What the fuck is that? I mean, I like Britney Spears, I think she's pretty, but I'm not from the Mickey Mouse Club-I'm from the Godzilla Club! more...

...as you'll know, the word 'fuck' sort of is used quite a lot in my house. Now, that's not to say, I think to say 'fuck this' or 'fuck you' a lot more, so it should be entered into the English language, because it has a lot more impact when you say, 'I fucking hate this thing. more...

I like the smell of armpits in the morning. It's like victory. more...

I'm not picking up dog shit. I'm a rock star. more...

Anyone that beats fucking skins for a living has got to be somewhat weird. more...

When I was a practicing alcoholic, I was unbelievable. One side effect was immense suspicion: I'd come off tour like Inspector Clouseau on acid. 'Where's this cornflake come from? It wasn't here before. more...

God, beam me up! more...

I wonder where that bat is now? Maybe he's sitting in Bat Heaven somewhere, with his own bat roadies... more...

I'm a nice guy, you know. It's hard work to be an asshole. more...

There are no impossible dreams. more...

There are no indisputable truths. more...

There are no invisible seams. more...

There are no incurable ills. more...

There are no unlockable doors. more...

There are no uncriminal crimes. more...

There are no unsavable souls. more...

There are no unwinnable wars. more...

Every shopaholic needs an accomplice. more...

There are no unachievable goals. more...

It had a huge impact on me, "Smells Like Teen Spirit" - and I was very proud when I found out that Kurt Cobain was a fan of mine. I thought he was awesome. more...

The Jesus freaks were the worst. While the "Suicide Solution" case was going through the courts they followed me around everywhere. They would picket my shows with signs that read, "The Anti-Christ Is Here". And they"d always be chanting: "Put Satan behind you! Put Jesus in front of you!" One time, I made my own sign - a smiley face with the words "Have a Nice Day" - and went out and joined them. They did' even notice. Then, just as the gig was about to start, I put down the sign, said, "See ya, guys," and went back to my dressing room. more...

I grew up having to piss in a bucket "cos there was no indoor shitter, and now I have these computerised Japanese super-loo things that have heated seats and wash and blow-dry your arse at the touch of a button. Give it a couple of years and I"ll have a bog with a robot arm that pulls out my turds, so I do' have to strain. more...

I was curious, given the swimming pools of booze I"ve guzzled over the years - not to mention all of the cocaine, morphine, sleeping pills, cough syrup, LSD, Rohypnol... there's really no plausible medical reason why I should still be alive. Maybe my DNA could say why. more...

Sabbath were a hippy band. We were into peace. more...

I wanted to be the fifth Beatle. more...

We were very pleased to have the opportunity to come to Israel and visit the holy sites in the Old City. more...

I think MTV should consider using subtitles. Half the time, even I can't understand what the fu*k I'm talking about. more...

I suppose there's a lot of people that've got a better life than me. But I don't know, I feel very fortunate and very blessed. more...

Dogs smoke in France. more...

Tony Iommi - the undisputed king of demonic heavy rock riffs. In this area, no one had never surpassed him. more...

There are no unbeatable odds, there are no believable gods. more...

I am going through changes more...

With my recovery programme, I have to do a daily inventory of how my day has been. I am terribly dyslexic and have attention deficit disorder, so I have to carry a tape recorder everywhere I go. more...

I always feel like I am on the dark side of the tracks. I feel I'm no good. I can't read. more...

I have no faith in my ability to judge things. more...

Everything that I think is good is bad, and everything that I think is bad is good. more...

All I ever wanted to do was to do something good so that my parents could be proud of me. more...

I never received any encouragement. My father would work nights and my mother would work during the day. We were expected to get a job with a trade. more...

I was never good at sports. I was never good at exams, because they didn't understand dyslexia. more...

The Beatles. I didn't like the ?rst couple of songs, but when I heard "She Loves You', it was like something went off in my head. more...

Being in Birmingham, I thought I was going to be a gangster or a bag-runner or a thief. I heard music and I was determined to get out of there. more...

It was such an amazing time for music in the Sixties. When popular music hit me, it was like magic was in the air. more...

In the early days, you would get skinheads, the Eagles and Black Sabbath playing the same show. more...

We were always told we were one step behind Deep Purple, one step behind Led Zeppelin, one step behind everybody. Our manager didn't want to let us know how popular we were. It's only after we did Ozzfest that people started telling me stuff. I thought they were taking the piss. People would come up to me and go, "Respect. more...

In those days, if you wanted a new car or a holiday, you'd phone up the office and they'd send you some cash. You never had a bank account. I don't know anyone from the music business in the Seventies that it didn't happen to. more...

In the Seventies I was so scared I wouldn't go on stage. more...

I feel joy when I do a great show. more...

It was always fun in the early days of Black Sabbath, when I stayed away from heavy drugs. Then someone gave me cocaine and I went, "Hallelujah!" I thought I'd found the meaning of life! more...

I tried heroin once and I didn't like it. It frightened me. more...

I would lock myself in my room and drink a case of Corona and smoke a load of pot. more...

The bike went up in the air and landed on my back. It broke my neck, smashed my collarbone and splinters of bone severed my main artery. My lung ?lled up with blood. I severed my nerves and to this day I have no feeling there. more...

My heart stopped twice. They had to stab me to drain the blood from my lungs because I was drowning in my own blood. more...

At 18 if someone had said to me, 'I think you should go to rehab,' I would have thought, 'You're *&!@ mad'. more...

For years I've had neurological problems. I used to shake a lot and I was on medication - I paid about $700,000 for one year of pills. I was taking 40-odd different ones a day. more...

With time, people forget to say, "Darling I love you." just that word... more...

I discovered rock'n'roll. You could go round Europe in a van with your best mates, drinking beer, smoking dope and screwing chicks. more...

I remember what a thrill it was to go from the back streets of Birmingham to Madison Square Garden in New York...it's like playing on Mars. You can't buy that. more...

The rest of the guys in Sabbath became boring old farts, and there I was, this crazy guy, still into wrecking hotel rooms and having parties. more...

How can you go on stage and shout 'Yeah! Rock'n'roll forever!' and then go to bed at 10 o'clock with a nightcap on, a candle in your hand and a Bible under your arm? more...

The first question that comes out of everybody's mouth, 'Did you bite the head off a bat?' And I did, so, next." more...

If you go out for a drink, you go out for a drink. You don't think, 'I'll have a few pints. I'll piss up this shrine.' more...

My son Jack once said to me, 'Dad, do you think people are laughing with you or at you?' And I said, 'I don't care as long as they're laughing.' more...

I met Bush but we didn't talk at all. To tell you the truth, I was too pissed. more...

I'm hoping to do a Broadway musical on the life of Rasputin. He's someone I can definitely identify with. more...

Ozzy is a powerful and attractive man. When I grow up I want to be Ozzy. more...

Bubbles! Oh come on Sharon! I'm fucking Ozzy Osbourne, the Prince of fucking Darkness. Evil! Evil! What's fucking evil about a buttload of fucking bubbles!? more...

Yes, I did bite the head off of a dove. Yes, I did bite the head off of a bat. It's a stupid thing to do, but I did it. more...

When I heard The Beatles, I said, 'That's it. That's what I want to be. I want to be a Beatle.' more...

It was one of the greatest experiences of my life to meet Paul McCartney. It was phenomenal. more...

I love my wife. We've had a few slings and arrows across the room, but I'm not prepared to give in, you know? People say she saved my life, but at the same time, I saved her life, as well, I think. She's a great mother, she's a great wife, she's a great worker, she's a great manager. She's just great. more...

Drugs and alcohol were ruling my life. I made a lot of bad decisions while I was drinking alcohol. The first thing I stopped was cigarettes and tobacco. more...

I've been in rehabs with hardcore heroin addicts who say, 'I've kicked the heroin, but I can't let go of the tobacco.' I haven't smoked a cigarette in a long time. I like being clean now. more...

Chocolate thickens the saliva, which isn't good news if you've gotta recite Shakespeare or sing Iron Man. Having said that, you're not supposed to drink tea either but I still do before gigs. It's not very rock and roll, but it's like a magic potion to me. more...
