Guitar master Zakk Wylde spoke in an interview iwth Hatebreed’s Jamie Jasta and revealed how Ozzy Osbourne stay healty for his live shows. He said:

“I remember Ozzy getting shots into his neck – with steroids and stuff like that. He would never cancel a show. I mean, you wanna talk about the fortitude of rock. The pillar of strength. [Laughs]

No matter how banged up we got the night before, Ozz would just get up there… He’s feeling like a prison ass, but when he got up there he’d still knock it out.

And then after the show is when he’d reward himself with a drink. Ozz would never even have a touch of cocktail… Even in his drinking days, he would never touch a cocktail before the show. After the show though, it was game on.”

He continued:

“I’ve done that before, getting IVs before the show. I was just really sick or dehydrated or whatever. Just get the IV before the show. Without a doubt. And just laughing about.

I thought all I had to do was like practice. I didn’t realize this was all part of it. At that point you’re laughing about it. It’s just that we gotta do a rock show. But, you know, you just get up there and you do it.”
