Tony Iommi, the former guitarist for Ozzy's old band, Black Sabbath, has released his memoirs.

In it, he describes that at the height of their partying and rocking out, the drugs just didn't cut it anymore.

He said:

"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."

Gross.

The guitarist goes on to talk about his how his own life was affected by all the drugs and rock and roll, saying:

"We had management problems, I married four times. Was a lousy husband. I suddenly didn't feel good, so I stopped drugs. No rehab.

I'm a country squire, I live on a farm with dogs and chickens. All I want is to work. I'm dedicated to working. Listen, I've set up equipment inside an enormous dungeon in a huge castle in Wales. And worked. I felt creative."

He still talks with Ozzy pretty regularly, saying:

"I talk to Ozzy couple times a week. He's up, down. I love him, although his attention span lasts three seconds."

Sure sounds like the Oz man to us. Good thing he stopped all that gross "animal business" (remember the bat?) back in the 80s.

We forgive you.
