Geezer Butler Recalls How Ozzy Osbourne Accidentally Called The Police When There Was A Big Bowl Of Cocaine With Them
Black Sabbath bass guitarist Geezer Butler spoke in a recent interview with Billboard and talked about the time when all the Sabbath members were staying in the same house.
In the conversation, Geezer mentioned that it was completely mental to stay with the band back in those days and revealed that they used to have bucketloads of cocaine in there.
Furthermore, Geezer wanted to tell a story about how Ozzy Osbourne accidentally called the police officers into the house when they were using drugs. According to Geezer, Ozzy noticed something interesting under the window.
Ozzy was trying to figure out what that was and he kept pressing it continuously. After a short period, police came out to the house and it turned out that Ozzy was pressing the panic button.
Here is what Geezer Butler said:
“It was mental. Completely mental! We used to have bucketloads of cocaine there, and we had this big bowl in the middle of the table, full of cocaine.
One day Ozzy noticed this button below one of the windows; He kept pressing it, ‘I wonder what this does?’ The next thing, the police turned up — it was a panic button.
And there was us with this great big bowl of cocaine in the middle. So we dumped all the cocaine down the toilet and ran upstairs to get rid of our own stashes.
The coppers went, ‘What’s the problem?’ ‘Oh, nothing…’ ‘OK, see ya…’ And we’d dumped about five grams of cocaine down the bog!”
