Ozzy Osbourne was so desperate to down alcohol back in his hellraising days, he once went to a bar dressed in his wife SHARON's clothes to escape her tight clutches.

The British rocker, who has now given up drugs and booze, admits he once had to don drag just for the pleasure of having a drink.

He says of Sharon, "She would steal my clothes and I'd have no clothes, so what I would do is steal her clothes and go out in her dresses drinking. I ended up in some pretty weird places.

"I remember being in Frankfurt, Germany, one time and I've got this green evening dress on, or blue or whatever. And the guy behind the bar goes, 'You do not belong in this bar. You must go down to the bar down the road!' It was one of them transvestite bars."
