Iommi: 'The Osbournes Shows What I've Put Up With'
BLACK SABBATH rocker TONY IOMMI is pleased his bandmate OZZY OSBOURNE's reality TV show was a smash hit - because it showed the world what he has "put up with for 40 years". The guitarist and Osbourne were childhood friends, and Iommi insists his pal behaved the same way then as he does in THE OSBOURNES. He says, "I've known Ozzy since I was 11, from school, and he hasn't changed. He still calls me at the most peculiar times - at three in the morning when I'm asleep - and leaves silly messages. "A lot of people ask what it's like seeing him in his TV show, and I tell them that now they can see what I've had to put up with for 40 years."
