He admitted that back in the '80s he used to pour cocaine on his athlete's foot because it was the best remedy he could find on the road.

Rocker once poured cocaine on his toes in a bizarre attempt to cure his athlete's foot. The former frontman occasionally suffers from the fungal infection and struggled to find a remedy while he was touring in the 1980s.

And when the rock wildman was told his stash of cocaine was cut with foot powder - he rubbed it on his itching toes to ease his discomfort. In his health column for Britain's Sunday Times Magazine, Osbourne writes, "Funnily enough, in the 1980s I used to cure athlete's foot by pouring cocaine on my toes."

"They cut the stuff with so much foot powder back then, it was the best treatment you could find if you had an outbreak on the road. The only problem was the price, which was around 3,000 pounds a toe."
