Ozzy Nervous About Brit Awards Duty
Ageing rocker Ozzy Osbourne will be putting his memory to the test when he presents Wednesday's Brit Awards (20Feb08) - because he is terrible at remembering people's names. The 59-year-old admits his heavy drug use during his youth has played havoc with his ability to recall small bits of information - so he will be relying on his co-host, manager/wife Sharon, to help him introduce the acts at the London ceremony. He jokes, "Maybe I should start smoking dope again. I can never remember anyone's name, I'm always putting my foot in it. "Sharon can meet someone in an airport in 1973, then again in 2005 and remember they're called Jimmy. Paul MCCartney's really good at that, too."
