Ozzy Osbourne can't remember New Zealand



Tbdozzyosbourne030308 Ozzy Osbourne is headed back to Wellington, New Zealand for the Rock2Wgtn festival during Easter, but that doesn’t mean the aging rocker has any real recollection of it -- and that’s not just because his last trip to Wellington was in 1973 with Black Sabbath. (For the record, the last time he visited the country was in 1998.)

“I used to enjoy being f---ing crazy,” he told The Dominion Post from L.A. “I ain’t no saint now. I’m still f---ing nuts.”

So nuts that he has to rely on the Kiwi caretaker of his mansion, whom he only identified as Howard, to jog his memory. “He said there’s some amazing sights to be seen. I saw parts of that hobbit thing and I thought, 'Where on earth was this place filmed?’” Ozzy said. “I can remember being there, but I can’t remember when.”

Of course, when you bite the heads off bats and support the economy of Colombia by yourself, you’re likely to forget most things.
