Ozzy was a horrible thief

Los Angeles - Ozzy Osbourne was a hopeless thief in his youth. The Black Sabbath singer revealed he had little success when he tried to venture into a life of crime because he was a “fucking idiot”.

He told Shortlist.com: “I wasn't exactly the great train robber; I was a fucking idiot. “I was nicking this TV once, and I got it over the wall, but I fell down and the TV landed on my chest.

“I couldn't get the fucking thing off me. So, I had to lie there until they caught me. I wanted to be on television, but the television was on me.” 

Needed an escape

The 64-year-old rocker admitted he “kept getting nicked” as a robber, which he attempted because he needed an escape route from his home town in Birmingham, UK.

He said: ''I tried being a thief, which I wasn't any good at. I kept getting nicked. “I broke into one shop and I had my thumb out of the fucking gloves. That's how fucking clever I was. 'Yep, thumbprints, we've got him.' I didn't realise it was the fingerprints they got you on.

“I stole anything I could sell: baby clothes, old-age pensioners' stuff. I looked great in a pub with a bag full of babies' vests: 'Anyone want these?'”
