OZZY OSBOURNE has revealed how he tried to kill wife Sharon while high on drugs.
The 71-year-old Paranoid rocker said he could still vividly recall the incident at their home in Buckinghamshire in 1989.
He said: ‘I felt the calmest I had ever felt in my life. I was just peaceful. I remember waking up in Amersham jail and I asked the cop, “Why am I here?”. And he says, “You want me to read your charge?”. So he read, “John Michael Osbourne, you have been arrested for attempted murder”.’
Sharon, 67, remembers her husband being in a ‘very calm’ state during the incident.
She told The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne: ‘I put the kids to bed, bathed them — and I was sat down reading.
‘He came into the room. I had no idea who was sat across from me on the sofa but it wasn’t my husband. And he just said, “We’ve come to a decision that you’ve got to die”.
‘He was calm — very calm — then suddenly he dived on me and started to choke me. He got me down on the ground on top of me and I was feeling for stuff on the table. I felt the panic button and I just pressed it and the next thing I know, the cops were there.’
