Firefighters were called to the Osbourne’s house following Ozzy’s late night snack. Sharon Osbourne later referred to the incident via her Twitter account: “I’m in London, @OfficialOzzy is in LA making a bacon sandwich last night and the fire brigade ended up at our house!!”
Meanwhile, Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi has been speaking with WWeek.com, revealing how the band vetoed asking legendary drummer Ginger Baker to play on their new album, 13.
“We put a stop on. We didn’t think Ginger would have been… we didn’t want to go into the studio and have, um, problems.”
Ultimately the group called upon the services of Rage Against The Machine sticksman, Brad Wilk.
“We did try some big name drummers – some very big name drummers. They were great, but Rick particularly suggested Brad. He did work hard; he was thrown into the deep end and he was very nervous. He got used to us, our jokes, the way we prank around.”
