And Nothing Would Ever Be The Same Again…
Ozzy Osbourne truly is one of the most iconic and influential singers of all time. He is regarded as one of the founding fathers of heavy metal as we know it and thus creating an entire culture to follow. So with that in mind, it goes without saying that he has had his fair share of troubles over the years. A lot of which he is more than open about, but he recently opened up about one more instance and it sheds a light on so many things.
Ozzy spoke about being a father and talked about the one thing that his son Jack said to him.
“Those two words hit me harder than anything else in life.”
“I wasn’t so much of a dad as I was an extra delinquent child for my wife. I had a row with my son one day and I asked him, ‘What the fuck have you ever wanted in your life?’ He says, ‘A father.’ That hit me between the eyes like a fucking rock. I turned to him on the spot: ‘Jack, I’m so fucking sorry.’ My ego was running the show. I thought I had the right to be whatever I wanted to be. That’s not the case, because when you bring someone into the world you’ve got a responsibility. Sharon is one of these mothers who’d fly around the world, come back to England and take the kids to a zoo or a movie or whatever. I was in a fucking bar on the floor all the time, which I’m not proud of. But being sober gives them hope I’m here to stay. My relationship with my kids now is great.”
