Ah, the ’80s, that carefree fun time when Ozzy Osbourne was more of a madman than an oldman. He had himself a blast back then, biting heads off bats and doves and urinating on the Alamo while dressed like a woman. Wait, what? Yeah, that happened. And he was banned from El Paso for a long time. But according to Mysanantonio.com, the singer will formally apologize for defiling the building as part of his show that’s currently filming for the History Channel. As we learned last year when we wrote about another unfortunate guy that peed on the shrine, Ozzy had actually peed on a cenotaph across the street, not the Alamo itself. He was dressed like a woman because Sharon had taken his clothes, allegedly, although a promoter said it was because he was doing a photo shoot:
“He was drunk. Ozzy was super drunk and he had a bladder problem. You know, I don’t think anyone would have even noticed what he was doing except that he was doing a photo shoot with the English music magazine Melody Maker and he was dressed in pink tights and ballerina shoes. He wandered over to the side of the statue and there he went, ” concert promoter Greg Wilson told the Express News in 1992.
What? Ozzy drunk during the last days of Black Sabbath? Say it ain’t so! (note, this pic is actually from another Ozzy arrest a few years later).
