Ozzy Osbourne felt “excited” being in New York during 9/11.
The Black Sabbath frontman has found the aftermath of the atrocity “fascinating” and his “kind of craziness.”
The 65-year-old singer was in the Big Apple on September 11, 2001, during a series of terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center – which killed almost 3,000 people.
He told Shortlist magazine: “I wasn’t scared, I was excited! It was my kind of craziness, y’know.
“The day after that happened, there was f***ing nobody in New York. I remember standing on the steps of the hotel, and – you know when you see an old cowboy film and that tumbleweed rolls past on the ground? There were newspapers just floating around on the streets. It was so f***ing weird.”
The rocker- who is married to former ‘X Factor’ judge Sharon Osbourne – wasn’t frightened by the incident, he admits being anxious over the current unrest in the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and is expecting a lot of the human race to be wiped out with a nuclear weapon sooner or later.
He explained: “I hope this ISIS lot don’t get going. I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s in mankind to try to kill each other for one thing or another.
“I think sooner or later one of these crazy f***ers is going to get a nuclear weapon or some f***ing thing, and f**k a lot of people up. That’s in our nature.”
