Ozzy ‘confident’ of catching bird flu

LONDON: Reformed hellraiser and Black Sabbath lead singer Ozzy Osbourne fears he’s so unlucky he’ll become the first person in Britain to catch avian flu. The paranoid rocker, who has a history of alcohol and drug abu-se, worries abo-ut the chances of bird flu spre-ading across Europe to Britain, reports ratethemusic.com.

A wry Osbourne, who spends his time between Los Angeles and Buckinghamshire, jokes that if anybody will catch the disease, it will be him. “I don’t smoke, drink or take drugs anymore. (But) knowing my luck, a bird will pass on me and I’ll get bird flu on the way home,” the portal quoted him as saying to BBC Radio 2.
