Ozzy Osbourne: ‘I Must Have Been in a Cocaine Haze, Because I Can’t Remember the ’90s at All’

Black Sabbath are currently enjoying some of their career’s greatest success. Along with gaining critical acclaim, the band’s newest album, ’13,’ has debuted at No. 1 in the U.K. — the first time Sabbath have achieved that distinction since ‘Paranoid’ was unleashed in 1970. Sabbath singer Ozzy Osbourne may remember that achievement, but during a recent interview, Ozzy shared that he legitimately does not remember the 1990s.

“The best thing is that we are still f—ing all alive to be in a band,” Ozzy recently told Reuters. “I don’t know about the rest of the guys, [but] I certainly had a good go at trying to kill myself with the alcohol and booze for all the years … I kind of missed the ’90s, you know? I must have been in a cocaine haze, because I can’t remember the ’90s at all.”

Ozzy continues, “We’ve all come out the other side, the other end. It is good to be back sober and clean [even though I have had] a hiccup now and again along the way … I don’t get up and the first thing I say is that I will have a shot of brandy. I don’t do that or smoke cigarettes anymore … We are alive and it is a lot more more fun being sober and enjoying your fellow workers that you are working with.”

Black Sabbath’s beloved singer also stated that he would like to record yet another album with the band but admits there’s no guarantee. “I don’t want to promise anything to anyone,” says Osbourne, according to The Independent. “It took us long enough to do this, and we can’t wait another 43 years to have another number one … If it comes to pass we don’t make another record, then I can rest easily knowing we finished things properly with 13.”
