In a new radio interview, Ozzy Osbourne revealed what eventually led to the break up of the original Black Sabbath lineup.
Ozzy says that Black Sabbath was fracturing under its own internal pressures with the added complication of substantial substance abuse:
"What happened with me and Black Sabbath was that, in the beginning we all had a purpose, but as we went along that inevitable thing stepped in called ego…The fact is that success does change you. It affected ME. I was full of cocaine. That stuff makes you talk the biggest load of horse crap. There shouldn't
be a problem (left) in the world, 'cause we solved them all in the bathroom of a hotel with a bag of that white powder. "
