Ozzy Still Keeping It Metal
I think it might be time to get Ozzy a full time babysitter. Preferably one that speaks gibberish and knows their way around a kitchen. Earlier this week Ozzy had a hankering for a late night snack and decided to make himself a bacon sandwich. It didn't end well. Somewhere between cooking the bacon and trying to eat Ozzy managed to start a fire in the kitchen of his California home. It was big enough to where he needed to call the fire department. They showed up and put out the blaze and no one was injured. His wife Sharon took to Twitter to explain the whole mess,
"I'm in London, @OfficialOzzy is in LA making a bacon sandwich last night and the fire brigade ended up at our house"
This is the second time in the last year that Ozzy has had to call the fire brigade. In January, Sharon Osbourne left a candle burning inside a vase overnight that heated up and exploded setting fire to their living room. Ozzy was burned on his face from shards of glass and had to receive medical attention. Sharon spoke about the incident saying that she was to blame,
"His eyebrows are gone, he's got like, skinned cheeks. We are like two idiots, it was like The Three Stooges. Everything you are not meant to do, go to bed, with candles lit, open the doors and put water on it. We did it all. The firemen came up, they gave us a lecture and Ozzy is like: 'She's been doing this to me for 32 years! You tell her, you tell her, no more candles!!"
Other than setting fire to his house Ozzy and the rest of Black Sabbath are working on their 13th album minus original drummer Bill Ward. Producer Rick Rubin wanted Cream drummer Ginger Baker to take over on drums but the band vetoed that decision. Other drummers rumored are Rage Against the Machine's Brad Walk but nothing has been set in stone. Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler stated in a recent interview that if the band heads out on tour in support of the new album it will probably be their last. At this point it might not be bad idea. They've done it all and it's time to pass the torch.
