Ozzy: 'Tony Iommi Deserves a F--king Medal'
Ozzy Osbourne says the new Black Sabbath album has turned out better than any of them could have imagined, despite the frontman's relapse into drink and drug problems.

The band were talking to the Guardian when they revealed their old habit of flying in cocaine by a private plane in their younger days.

"Nobody could control anyone else," said Tony Iommi, who almost overdosed one night at the Hollywood Bowl. "I was doing coke left, right and centre, and quaaludes, and God knows what else. We used to have [cocaine] flown in by private plane."

Ozzy: "Yes, we've had our disagreements. We all said bad things and did our different trips, but it's great to be with the guys. The last time [2001] it didn't gel. But this time it worked out better than our wildest expectations.

"For Tony to come up with riffs like these is unbelievable. He deserves a medal because if I'd been diagnosed with lymphoma I'd have gone 'F--k this,' and gone back to bed with a bottle of morphine. But we kept on going because we knew this was probably our last hurrah."

But while the album has gone well, Ozzy still has to deal with problems in his personal life. "With or without alcohol I'm a f--king lunatic," he said. "I jump to the dark end of life. Probably why I'm the singer of Black Sabbath."
