“Ozzy knelt down and licked the ground. He not only touched his tongue, he made half a dozen long, full motions, like a cat. Then he stood up, his eyes glittering and his mouth wet with urine, he looked directly at me and said, ‘Do it, Sixx!’
Ozzy later claimed he didn’t recalled doing that: “I have absolutely no memory of doing that,” he said.
