We all know Ozzy Osbourne as the 'Prince of Darkness,' but can it be that the Black Sabbath singer is actually be a vampire. In a recent interview, not only did Ozzy spill some interesting details about Sabbath's next album, '13,' but the singer also shared a story on how "fried" he was after spending just 20 minutes in the sun.
In October 1984, 19-year-old John McCollum committed suicide in his bedroom in Indio, Calif. While it was quickly determined that the gun shot wound was self-inflicted, the family didn't feel their son was solely at fault, as it was discovered that McCollum had been listening to the Ozzy Osbourne song 'Suicide Solution' off the 'Blizzard of Ozz' album at the time of his death.
Amidst the excitement revolving around Black Sabbath's upcoming album '13,' the personal life of Ozzy Osbourne has made its way into the headlines. In a recent Facebook statement, the Black Sabbath singer admitted a relapse into drug and alcohol abuse after reports had surfaced that Ozzy and his wife Sharon were on the verge of divorce. Having remained silent for some time, Sharon Osbourne recently addressed the two very public situations on her television program 'The Talk.'
Audiences are just getting familiar with 'God Is Dead?,' the epic track that was just released by Black Sabbath as the first single off their highly anticipated '13' album. Ozzy Osbourne took time out from Australia, where the band is preparing to tour, to call in to Zane Lowe's BBC show to speak about the group's album and he also dished about where the inspiration for the new single came from.
Black Sabbath's upcoming album, '13,' is perhaps the most anticipated metal disc since Bruce Dickinson and Adrian Smith returned to Iron Maiden in 1999, entering the studio to create 'Brave New World.' Expectations for the new Sabbath release are understandably massive, and, in a new interview, singer Ozzy Osbourne calls the album "mind-blowing" and "better than my wildest dreams."
