A week ago, Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth has revealed the moment when Ozzy Osbourne‘s lyrics came to life. Here’s the conversation:

Joe Rogan:

“Can you imagine though, being in an ambulance, you look up and it’s motherfucking David Lee Roth telling you’re gonna be OK? You’d be like, ‘I’m dead, I must be dead.”

David Lee Roth:

“Only twice has that actually happened because I worked in the hood, I worked at night and only worked [in a situation where] you’d never expect to see me. Once was after Ozzfest.”
