Ozzy Osbourne Once Trashed Hotel Room With A Dead Shark
We all know that the legendary Ozzy Osbourne is notorious for doing crazy things, especially the time he bit the head off of a bat with his bare mouth, but he might have upped the ante now. Osbourne’s Black Sabbath bandmate Tony Iommi reports that they were once staying at a hotel where Ozzy trashed the room with a dead shark. Huh? was probably your first reaction like it was mine, so read on to find out what mischief the psychotic-but-musical genius has also done in the past.
Doing random, morbid things like this were apparrently the bands way of getting high, after becoming bored with drugs and alcohol. According to the article, Iommi reports:
With drugs always you get bored, so you must do something to one another. Like Ozzy hauling a shark through a window, dismembering it and soaking our room in blood.
God only knows where he got the shark corpse, but I can’t even imagine what the room looked like or how the hotel maids and management handled it. It’s not like you can exactly snap your fingers and the room is clean, but being as famous as he is, I can’t help but think the hotel found a ounce or two of amusement in the whole thing. I know I would, but that’s the sick part of me.
Despite Ozzy’s on and off relationship in the band, the four original members will make a special announcement on Friday morning- 11/11/11- which is National Metal Day. Fans are hoping for a reunion and tour, so stay tuned for news of the Los Angeles press conference that is scheduled for 11:11 am PST- on 11/11/11.
What do you think of the shark act? What do you hope the band announces on Friday?
