THE RAZZ: TURN DOWN THAT AWFUL RACKET,DAD; Roles reversed in Ozzy's house as son Jack tells him off for noise.

Byline: Rick Fulton

OZZY OSBOURNE has admitted he's told to turn his music down at home - by his son. While in ordinary families it's usually the dad who asks the children to be quiet, in the Osbourne house it's 19-year-old Jack telling Ozzy, 56, to pipe down.

Ozzy said: 'Jack's always f****** on at me to turn down the stereo.

'I still like my music loud. Jack will come in and go 'Why do you have to listen to it so loud?' and I'm like 'Excuse me I've been playing this s*** since before you were born.' Ozzy is back to talking about music after a life-threatening quad bike accident, his wife Sharon's cancer scare and youngest children Jack and Kelly, 20, spent time in rehab to treat their drug addictions.

Since 2002, former Black Sabbath singer Ozzy has been a TV star thanks to reality show The Osbournes.

It made them international household names, but Ozzy still can't believe what the family have gone through in the past three years. He said: 'Being famous in the rock 'n' roll world and being famous in TV world is like

the difference between a drop of water and the Pacific Ocean.

'When it came to playing Paranoid at Buckingham Palace it felt very weird. I said to Sharon 'Things are happening way too fast and way too big.' It happened so quickly that we didn't have time to think about it.'

The rocker will release a new four-CD box set, Prince Of Darkness, on Monday of his solo hits, rarities, B-Sides and cover versions, including The Rolling Stones' Sympathy For The Devil and The Beatles' In My Life.

Ozzy refuses to mime and, although he admits to doing some awful gigs, said: 'There's so much trickery these days, it seems like you only need to show up and someone else will take care of your performance.

'I saw Britney Spears singing from a trapeze in her Vegas gig and she was so far out that she was a whole word behind the track.'
