Ozzy's Role Model Regrets
Hellraising rocker OZZY OSBOURNE regrets not being a better role model when his son JACK faced drug rehab - he was in a worse state himself.
The former BLACK SABBATH frontman, whose daughter KELLY has also spent time in a rehabilitation centre, realises he should have set a better example to both his kids when they battled their drug and drink addictions.
Ozzy says, "I'm not exactly a role model, am I?
"When Jack went into the clinic, I was popping pills left, right and centre when I was visiting him.
"How can I tell my kids, 'Never smoke cigarettes' when I've got a fag hanging out my gob?
"Or tell 'em not to touch alcohol when I'm on my 10th lager of the day?
"Jack cleaned up before I did. I learnt far more from him than he ever learnt from me.
"I taught him how to become a drug addict. He taught me how to stop all that s**t.
"I haven't touched any drugs or done any drink for nearly eight months now."04/02/2005 17:37
