Ozzy Osbourne is convinced he is going to be killed by bird excrement and will melt to death
Ozzy Osbourne is terrified he will be killed by bird excrement.
The former Black Sabbath frontman - who was involved in a life-threatening quad biking accident in December 2003 - believes he will melt to death after contracting a rare virus.
The rocker said: "You know the way I'll go? Some bird with some rare virus is going to fly over my head. It's going to s**t on me and I'm going to melt on the floor."
Despite his hell-raising past, Ozzy - who has three children, Aimee, Jack, and Kelly, with wife Sharon - insists he now leads a boring life and credits Black Sabbath with allowing him to reach 60.
He added to Britain's The Sun newspaper: "If it wasn't for Black Sabbath, I would have been f**king dead long ago.
"Nowadays I just keep my head above water. I don't drink any more, I don't do drugs, I don't smoke cigarettes, I'm quite boring actually."
Meanwhile, Ozzy's latest show with his family, 'Osbournes: Reloaded', has been snubbed by many channels in the US after it was deemed inappropriate.
The variety show, which stars Ozzy, Sharon, Kelly and Jack, was described as "good clean fun" but a number of stations are refusing to broadcast it, while others have changed its 8.20pm slot to a much later one.
