Tell me I'm a sinner I got news for you I spoke to God this morning and he don't like you! Don't you try and teach me no original sin; I don't need your pity for the shape I'm in
Somebody said to me this morning, 'To what do you attribute your longevity?' I don't know. I mean, I couldn't have planned my life out better. By all accounts I should be dead! The abuse I put my body through: the drugs, the alcohol, the lifestyle I've lived the last 30 years!
I knew it was time to get off of reality TV when someone asked me if I sang as well as acted.
I am a raging alcoholic and a raging addict and I didn't want to see my kids do the same thing.
I have a genuine love affair with my audience. When I'm on stage they're not privileged to see me. It's a privilege for me to see them.
Whenever I have a bad day I just think of these people.
I got rabies shots for biting the head off a bat but that's OK - the bat had to get Ozzy shots.
You gotta be really careful what you bite off. Don't bite off more than you can chew. It's a dangerous world.
They say military have the so-called 'secret intelligence' - this amount of intelligence must be very secret, since I've never seen any intelligent military person, nor I have seen any sense in the bloody stupid wars.
I couldn't be a royal. It's like living in a supersonic goldfish bowl.
I'll only retire in the day I should be dead and they have me buried, and some idiot spell over my casket some stupid gospel stuff.
I'm dyslexic, I have attention-deficit disorder, and I've got something like a hereditary tremor.
MTV made a huge impact. Heavy rotation took you from selling 1m albums to 20m albums, and that meant a lot of dough.
All that stuff about heavy metal and hard rock, I don't subscribe to any of that. It's all just music. I mean, the heavy metal from the Seventies sounds nothing like the stuff from the Eighties, and that sounds nothing like the stuff from the Nineties. Who's to say what is and isn't a certain type of music?
I'm about caring, I'm about people, and I'm about entertaining people. I'm a family man. A husband. A father. I've been a lot of other things over the years, which we don't really want to talk about.
I used to fantasize that Paul McCartney would marry my sister.
L.A.'s not a good place to grow old.
I wish I didn't have to perform 'Iron Man' every night.
Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most.
Rock music is not meant to be perfect.
