OZZY OSBOURNE SAYS ROCKERS ARE LIKE SCHIZOPHRENICS

7/12/2012

Ozzy Osbourne believes rock stars share traits with some people afflicted with a certain personality disorder. He also says entertainers risk going “crazy” if that can’t separate their personal lives from their onstage personas.

“[Rock] performers are like schizophrenics,” Osbourne said, speaking to Kerrang! magazine. “When you’re onstage that’s what you do, but when you are offstage you’ve got to be different.”

Osbourne admitted he speaks from experience, having struggled through the years to draw a division between his professional life and his personal life.

“It got me in all kinds of trouble,” he said. Still, be believes there’s at least one category of entertainer that behaves even more erratically than rockers. “Rock and roll is bad for that stuff,” he said, “but if you think that’s bad, you want to get involved in the acting world. They go nuts!”

Ozzy Osbourne and his wife Sharon are joining the support for imprisoned Lamb of God frontman, Randy Blythe. Blythe was arrested on June 27 in the Czech Republic for alleged manslaughter after a fan died one month after a 2010 Lamb of God show. Reportedly, Blythe pushed the fan from the stage, leading to his death.

Sharon tweeted, "Please support former Ozzfest member Randy Blythe from @Lambofgodband. #FreeRandyBlythe." Her husband also retweeted the sentiment as well.

If convicted, Blythe could face five to 10 years in a Czech Republic jail. He is reportedly awaiting a new court date where it will be decided if the terms of his bail will be amended.

Blythe paid the $200K bail but was forbidden from leaving the country.
