Ozzy Osbourne

49 Days Sober ...

and Still Headbanging

4/22/2013 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


042213_ozzy_osbourne_splash
Ozzy Osbourne celebrated his 49th day of sobriety by rocking out HARD -- we're talkin' crotch-thrusting, hardcore headbanging, and running around a stage like a maniac ... and it was awesome.

Osbourne -- who's 64 years old -- performed with Black Sabbath in New Zealand on Saturday ... just days after coming clean about his private struggle with drugs and alcohol.

We broke the story, Ozzy's wife Sharon decided to separate from the rock star after learning he'd fallen off the wagon -- and said she wouldn't come back until he was sober for several months. 

The ultimatum seems to be working -- 'cause he looked fresh and energized on stage.

Why don't these rockers realize how ridiculous they look out there as senior citizens acting like they are still 20.

Just My Opinion    

Ozzy, when you get that urge, dude. Think of what all you will lose. Your family should mean more to you than drugs and boos, dude. If you lose them, what do you have left? NOTHING! Sharon stayed with you, but other women won't, think of that, or stay for the money and counting the days until you pass on so they can cash in.

Best of luck to you!!

Wow...good for him. TBH after all he's been through I don't know how he's still walking the earth. Take care of yourself man, we want you to be around a long time.

She's in her sixties!!! Sharon should just pack it up and leave for good. She's been nursemaid and mommy to a grown-ass man long enough. Find a real adult male who can offer emotional stability and take care of her for a change while there is still time to enjoy herself.

Ozzy has this devilish, little boy smile. You can't help but like the guy. It's kind of like Jack Nicholson's smile. I think Sharon said in an interview that he's a "lovable rogue".

Ozzy's a good singer too. He doesn't get enough credit for it. He writes most of the lyrics too and he definitely has a good ear for talent when it comes to getting guitarists to join his band. Iommi, Randy Rhoads, and Zakk Wylde are all awesome ... legendary really. Randy Rhoads would have been a mega, mega rock star if he didn't die in that plane crash in the 80s.

Zakk Wylde looks cool in concert. He's awesome on guitar like Randy. He's a like a Viking who plays a really mean guitar instead of using a sword or whatever.

The most important thing is that you keep trying, Ozzy! If you fall, don't hate on yourself - just apologize and get back up and try harder. You are lucky to have Sharon...Many people struggle just like you and don't get as many chances as she has given you. As long as you are trying, she'll be there when you come around. Good luck!!

I was at this concert. Ozzy simulated sex with a chicken and later someone threw a live midget on the stage and Ozzy bit his head off and spat it out at the crowd. We were a little shocked but were pleased he didnt lip-synch for most of the show. Osbourne is in the hospital now getting tested for rabies. r.i.p. you will be missed
