Recent Ozzy Osbourne Interview Items (5/10/2005)

Ozzy on his anarchic past: “When someone says you've just sold a million albums in a month or whatever, you don't really care why; you're too busy out celebrating. It's only years later, when people are still going on about you biting the head off the fucking chicken, you start to go, 'Hang on, is that really all there is to know about me?'”

Ozzy on his diagnosis of Parkin Syndrome (a hereditary condition that affects the nervous system): "I'd always assumed it was the booze and stuff. Now I've found it all stems from the family. It's called Parkin but it's not Parkinson's. Anything to do with the central nervous system has the word Parkin in it. A doctor in Los Angeles tried to tell me I had multiple sclerosis. And I believed him until I had a second opinion. When I told my sisters she said, 'Not you as well? Mum had that and Auntie Elsie and your grandma.' I'm like, 'Thanks for fucking telling me'. Me walking around thinking I've got some drug paralysis."

Ozzy on Sharon's New Breast Implants: "She's great. She just had some new tits. They've only just been done. I've gotta wait to see what happens. I hope they've only put two there because there's not enough room (in the house) with the dogs already."

Ozzy on a possible new Sabbath album: "We've grown up, we've all changed. But whether we could make another album together... If we started writing and came up with the next 'Master of Reality' or 'Sabbath Bloody Sabbath', I'd be a fucking idiot not to put it out. But I will not do a new SABBATH album just because of the name. I don't wanna do something half-assed and have everybody go, 'Oh, they only did it for the money...'"

Ozzy on the end of his reality show: "At first when I started doing 'The Osbournes', it was a lot of fun," he said. "And then things started to happen, like my kids couldn't handle it, I couldn't handle it, my wife got sick with cancer. Wherever you go it's full of somebody with a boom mic or a wire and a camera. You get kind of freaked out, 'cause you start looking around the house for hidden cameras and whatever, you know."

Meanwhile, daughter Kelly says she and brother Jack can thank their rock 'n' roll parents' genes for their drug problems. Kelly, 20, says she and Jack, 19, inherited genetic weaknesses from their parents, Ozzy and Sharon, which made the siblings more likely to be drug addicts.

"I think addiction is a genetic thing," Kelly told The Sun. "You are born with it and people don't understand that."

Kelly was treated last year for an addiction to painkillers and her mother hired someone to travel with her daughter to keep her off alcohol.

Despite criticizing her parents, Kelly told an Edinburgh, Scotland, radio station that fear of losing her father in a 2003 motorcycle crash was "one of the most tragic moments in our entire lives."
