Motley Crue Claims Ozzy Osbourne Snorted Ants

Mötley Crüe are amazed Ozzy Osbourne is still alive.

The heavy metal band, made up of Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee, Mick Mars and Vince Neil, and British rocker Ozzy were notorious hell raisers during their ’80s heyday. Stories of women, drugs and parties became synonymous with the band and an incident involving Ozzy snorting a line of ants when he hung out with Mötley Crüe has become legendary in the music world.

“He would ride around on our bus every once in a while when Sharon wasn’t on tour. He knew our bus was the fun bus. Ozzy would come on with a big bag of coke and party. I think that particular day we were still up, in a really nice Ritz Carlton in Florida,” Tommy explained to British magazine Q.

“We were full on; even though it was a nice five-star joint with families and kids by the pool. The bar asked us to move outside and I think somebody looked down and saw trails of ants. Once Ozzy saw that he got on his knees and snorted it up.”

“Sick man. We’re amazed he’s still alive. Ozzy more than any of us,” added Nikki.

The band were formed in California in 1981 and have had hits the world over, including anthems Girls, Girls, Girls and Dr. Feelgood. Now the members of the group are all in their 50s and 60s, and are looking for a younger star to take over their hell-raising title. And it looks like Canadian star Justin Bieber may be just the man for the job.

“Let’s give him a little bit of credit. He started with the eggs, which was a little weak – a poor start. Then he got arrested in Miami for drag-racing and that was kinda cool – he was under the influence. Then he got arrested in Toronto and turned himself in. So he’s getting better, but he has work to do,” laughed Nikki.

“He has to beat someone with a chain, or something. Or get into a fight with a cop… The next thing he’ll get arrested for is toilet-papering a house,” added Vince.
