Ozzy Osbourne went to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting during a tour stop in Stockholm, but struggled to join in as the session was conducted in Swedish.

The veteran rocker, who is a recovering alcoholic, was in the city late last year with his band Black Sabbath, and he kept his booze demons in check by attending a local therapy group even though he doesn’t speak the language.

He tells Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper, “It’s been 480 days since my last drink and I go to meetings as many times a week as I can. When we were in Stockholm on tour, I went to one. I couldn’t understand a b**dy word they were saying.”

However, the rocker insists the session was not a waste of time, adding, “It still helped. It’s just the act of going there.”
