(Classic Rock) Ozzy Osbourne says it's "kind of nice" to be thought of as a hero by many people - but he wishes he could feel like a hero to himself. He admits he gives himself a hard time for his human failings, illustrated by his constant battle against returning to drink and drugs.

And the Black Sabbath frontman, who's been three years sober, has recalled a moment during the making of his new TV series where he felt sorely tempted to start drinking again.

Told that he's "a hero to many people," Ozzy tells Goldmine: "That's kind of nice. I wish I was a hero to me, sometimes. I do a good job of beating myself up. The thing is, I don't like to treat people any less than I would like to be treated myself. I suppose I have an ego but I don't like to go, 'Do you know who the f*** you're talking to?'

"If I'm walking down the street and someone goes,' Hey, it's Ozzy!' I'll go, 'Oh my, here we go.' But if they don't recognize me then I'm like, 'Am I losing it?' I like to be recognized. I said it on the last album: 'I don't want to live for ever but I don't want to die.'" Read more here.
