Ozzy Osbourne

49 Days Sober ...

and Still Headbanging

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.

Sounds like "Demon Alcohol" has been tormenting him again and he's been "Flying High Again". Sounds like Sharon didn't want to go through all that again.

Ozzy is at an age where he should be concerned about keeping as many brain cells as he can ... especially now that he's on tour with Sabbath. Eddie Van Halen was a mess a few years ago when he was drinking a lot while touring. Since he got sober, he's back to playing great in all of the shows. I think on Van Halen's last tour some of them simply weren't in good physical shape. Ozzy better get a personal trainer to make him workout or he might not make it through the tour either.

What is this "just days after coming clean about his private struggle with drugs and alcohol."

I've been a fan of Ozzy for 25 years now. He's always been an alcoholic/drug addict. This is nothing new. His partying is legendary... biting heads off bats, pissing on the alamo, snorting a line of ants... Ozzy's done it all.

I'd hardly call that "crotch-thrusting, hardcore headbanging, and running around a stage like a maniac". Well, maybe that's the 64yo version.

More power to him, but Ozzy sucks live. Sounds terrible and looks like an idiot.

I am very disappointed in Black Sabbah and their newest single. The drums were terrible, the singing was uninspired and Iommi didn't deliver enough signature riffs until after 6 mins of the song. Rick Rubin made a bad choice with green lighting that song, hopefully the album will be better. Long Live DIO!
