On the eve of Black Sabbath's first Australian tour in years, Ozzy Osbourne has used his Facebook page to out himself.
"For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs. I was in a very dark place and was an asshole to the people I love most, my family. However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober.
"Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing. I’m just trying to be a better person.
"I would like to apologize to Sharon, my family, my friends and my band mates for my insane behavior during this period………and my fans."
Black Sabbath launch their Australian tour on April 25 in Brisbane before making their way around the country.
Their new album, 13 is out in June. Here is some more behind-the-scenes and in the studio footage with the masters of hard rock and heavy metal.
