Ozzy Osbourne was once handed a $200,000 (£100,000) hotel bill after he let off fireworks inside a hotel he was staying in, it's been revealed.

According to Osbourne’s former Black Sabbath bandmate, Tony Iommi, Osbourne shocked bandmates when he let of an entire shops supply of explosives while they were asleep, reports WENN.

"That night we were all woken by a huge bang and a whoosh!" recalls Iommi. "Smoke started seeping under my door so I opened it and saw Ozzy just going crazy. He was letting all the fireworks off in the corridor.”

"Alarms were going and the next thing I knew the police had surrounded him with guns. He was arrested and taken away. The eventual bill was more than $200,000."

Now that's what rock 'n' roll is all about.
