    Reading the article;
    "Dubba" is about the same age, & he has been most candid about giving up drinking when it effected his life. I'm sure he must have listened to Black Sabbath back in his college days. What better example of what drugs & alcohol can to a person than looking @ Oz, or maybe Keith Richards who looks about 110.

    I guess he is stanging up for a good cause then. I have to check the listings and try to catch an episode. It reminds me of former Oakland Raiders Lyle Alzatoe (sp?). He was a steroid abuser when he played football and finally kicked the habbit. Unfourtunately he died from it. He did a public service commercial that was only aired after his death. Very scary but really drove home his message.

    I think rather than the same old "Do as I say, not as I do" Don't do drugs commercial, Oz can say, "Been there, done that, bit the head off a bat."

    Upon hearing the news, one of my buds @ work remarked, "Make sure that Hillary is there, just in case he gets the urge to bite the head off another bat."

    He might be crazy, but his show on MTV is freaking hilarious. Never in my life have I seen such a disfunctional yet somehow functional family in my life!!! Long live Ozzy!
