Ozzy Osbourne used dismembered sharks blood to paint hotel room

A former band-mate of Ozzy Osbourne has revealed that he once painted a hotel room with the blood of a “dismembered shark”.

Tony Lommi looked back on the chaos the Black Sabbath singer caused when he was known for his gruesome stunts and wrecking of hotel rooms.

He said the Prince of Darkness would always find a way to go overboard at the peak of their rock heyday.

Promoting his book 'Iron Man: My Journey through Heaven and Hell with Black Sabbath', Tony revealed that drugs had played a part in the band's madder moments.

While Ozzy famously once bit the head off a bat during a stage show, Tony also shone a light on some of the darker moments he witnessed on tour.

He said: “With drugs, always you get bored, so you must do something to one another. Like Ozzy hauling a shark through a window, dismembering it and soaking our room in blood."

It became a tradition for the band to tear up their hotel rooms in drug-fuelled binges and the group would often play tricks on each other.

Another time saw Ozzy set drummer Bill Ward on fire, leaving him with third-degree burns on his legs.

Tony said how Ozzy asked: "Bill, can I set fire to you?", to which Bill casually responded: "Busy, so not just yet."

Later on, he told the Prince of Darkness: "I'm going home now, so if you want, you can set fire to me."

Tony then threw "a bucket of alcohol" over Bill and Ozzy set him on fire.

This isn't the only 'prank' with animals involved that Ozzy has attempted, as he once snorted a line of marching ants.

He also bit the head off a live bat, which he insists he didn't know was real "until it was too late".

This happened at the Des Moines Veterans Memorial Auditorium over 40 years ago after an audience member snuck the innocent creature into the gig.
