The prince of darkness Ozzy Osbourne truly is one of the most iconic and influential singers of all time. He is regarded as one of the founding fathers of heavy metal music as we know it and thus creating an entire culture to follow. So with that in mind, it goes without saying that he has had his fair share of troubles over the years. A lot of which he is more than open about, but in a recent interview, he opened up about one more instance and it sheds a light on so many things.
When talking to Rolling Stone, he opened up about being a father and talked about the one thing that his son Jack said to him that hit him harder than anything else in life.
“I wasn’t so much of a dad as I was an extra delinquent child for my wife. I had a row with my son one day and I asked him, ‘What the fuck have you ever wanted in your life?’ He says, ‘A father.’ That hit me between the eyes like a fucking rock. I turned to him on the spot: ‘Jack, I’m so fucking sorry.’ My ego was running the show. I thought I had the right to be whatever I wanted to be. That’s not the case, because when you bring someone into the world you’ve got a responsibility. Sharon is one of these mothers who’d fly around the world, come back to England and take the kids to a zoo or a movie or whatever. I was in a fucking bar on the floor all the time, which I’m not proud of. But being sober gives them hope I’m here to stay. My relationship with my kids now is great.”
It only took two words to truly reshape Ozzy Osbourne as a person forever. Let it be known now that the relationship between Ozzy and his son Jack is great.
