According to TMZ.com, BLACK SABBATH frontman Ozzy Osbourne has moved back in with his wife and manager Sharon after convincing her that he has been drug and alcohol free for months.
Ozzy admitted that he relapsed into drug and alcohol abuse for 18 months in a statement posted on April 15 on his Facebook page.
Sharon had reportedly been staying in a Los Angeles hotel, and made it clear that she would not get back together with the singer until he adequately proved his sobriety.
The couple walked the red carpet at the Daytime Emmy Awards on Sunday, June 17 and seemed happy and in love. They even shared a passionate embrace and kiss at the award ceremony in Beverly Hills
In a recent interview with USA Today, Sharon stated about Ozzy's recovery: "He's doing incredibly well. He is. Eighty plus days clean and sober. He's working his program rigidly."
She added: "It's amazing to see how somebody in just over 80 days can change their life around. You know, miracles happen all the time and he has (gone from) hating himself, from a place of despair, to being a responsible husband and father again and it's amazing to see. I'm very proud of him. He's a great example, too, for people. He's not the only person that suffers from addiction.
"Tomorrow's a new day and you start all over again. You just don't give up, it doesn't matter what you have, or your position in life, you still have those demons in you.
"This problem affects so many people. It doesn't matter what you have. It's the same battle for everyone."
Ozzy has struggled with drug and alcohol addiction throughout his entire 40-plus-year career, both with SABBATH and as a solo artist, although in recent years he seemed to have achieved a steady level of sobriety.
Ozzy said, a while back, that the many years he spent drunk and high took a toll on his relationship with his kids — especially his son Jack. "The one downside about being the crazy guy of rock 'n' roll was the fact that I missed out on my children somewhat and they missed out on me," he said. "I had an argument with my son one time, and I go to him, 'Jack, what are you moaning at me for? You never wanted for a damn thing.' And he goes, 'Oh yeah? What about a father?' And it just kicked me straight between the legs and I was like, 'Good God.'"
Over the weekend Slipknot headlined the Download festival and drummer Joey Jordison says the experience of playing live with the band takes him to a different level, but he also claims the shows don’t come without their challenges and it all pays off in the end.
He says, "An easy Slipknot show doesn't exist. It's tough – but we wouldn't like it if it was easy. Once we lock in, it's like I black out; I don't notice any of the pain I might be experiencing. I've got eight other guys to guide with the tempo of the songs. I don't have time to feel any sort of pain or hurt. What's so gratifying about playing a show that intense is when you get off the stage – you know you really delivered at the top of your ability and performance. That's what makes it all worthwhile."
With the Rolling Stones' U.S. tour ending next week in Washington, D.C., the question among fans is: Will this be the last time the band plays the states? The name of their tour – 50 & Counting – doesn't really suggest "farewell tour", and last year they recorded two new songs new songs "Gloom And Doom" and "One More Shot”, that have made their set list every night.
Guitarist Ron Wood — who is still considered the new dude in the Stones, even though he joined up in 1975 —was recently asked if they have any plans to hit the studio again.
Wood said, "Well it takes so much time and effort to take this thing back on the road, [but] we've got the big wheels rolling now. We've just got to find the gaps to record."
If you’re playing along at home you’ll notice that answer reveals absolutely nothing.
Hey, don’t blame me dude. It’s a slow news day, what can I tell you?
Here, have some old-timey car crashes in place of any useful information…
