Ozzy Reveals What Made Him Stop Doing Acid

Ozzy Osbourne once revealed that he stopped taking acid after a trip that left him conversing with a horse for a hour. The story is told in the new issue of Classic Rock, which revisits Black Sabbath's chaotic heyday and the making of the 1972 classic Vol. 4.

"We lived together in a house in Los Angeles, rehearsed there, did loads of drugs and made an album: simple," says Ozzy. "Those were good times."

The story of how Ozzy stopped using acid after an equine encounter in the early 1970s is also told.

“At that time in America, people were very fond of lacing your drinks with acid," says Ozzy. "I didn’t care. I used to swallow handfuls of tabs at a time. The end of it came when we got back to England.

“I took 10 tabs of acid, then went for a walk in a field. I ended up standing there talking to this horse for about an hour. In the end the horse turned round and told me to f*3& off. That was it for me."
