  OZZY OSBOURNE OVERDOSED WHEN SHARON HAD CANCER
9th January 2017



ozzy osbourne

Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne's daughter, Kelly, has revealed in her upcoming book, 'There Is No F*cking Secret', that the Black Sabbath singer overdosed when Sharon suffered a seizure while being treated for cancer.

"Dad was there in his boxers, and I watched him scoop his hands into a bowl of pills, swallow a handful of something, and then wash it down with vodka," says Kelly about the time she ran to tell her father they needed to go to the hospital.

Later in the ambulance, "he leaned over to put his hand out to see if Mum was breathing. Then he passed out with his hand over her mouth. The EMTs tried to pull him off, and Dad, not knowing where he was or what he was doing, started to resist out of habit. They pulled over the ambulance and started to call the police."

Kelly says she begged them not to call the police and they agreed, but she had to tie Ozzy's hands to a bar so the medics could restrain him.

Sharon was placed in one room and Ozzy was rushed to another for treatment of a drug overdose and alcohol poisoning when they arrived at the hospital.

"Dad could not handle the thought of losing Mum," Kelly continues. She adds that Ozzy had a doctor come to the house and "shoot him up with whatever he wanted while the [doctor's] son sat in our dining room and played video games."

Kelly also credits the late comic Robin Williams, saying he visited Sharon when she was "losing her cancer fight" and helped save her life. Williams, she says, "climbed into bed with her. He stayed there all afternoon, and throughout the house, you could hear her cackling with laughter. Shortly after he left, she told us that she'd decided to go back and finish chemo. Robin Williams helped save Mum's life."

The book is written in open-letter form, with letters to Joan Rivers, racists and her vagina, and covers topics including dating and drugs and addiction. It is released on April 25th and available for pre-order on Amazon right here.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
