Ozzy Osbourne was a hapless thief in his youth
The Black Sabbath singer revealed he had little success when he tried to venture into a life of crime because he was a "f***ing idiot".
He told Shortlist.com: "I wasn`t exactly the great train robber; I was a f***ing idiot.
"I was nicking this TV once, and I got it over the wall, but I fell down and the TV landed on my chest.
"I couldn`t get the f***ing thing off me. So, I had to lie there until they caught me. I wanted to be on television, but the television was on me."
The 64-year-old rocker admitted he "kept getting nicked" as a robber, which he attempted because he needed an escape route from his home town in Birmingham, UK.
He said: "I tried being a thief, which I wasn`t any good at. I kept getting nicked.
"I broke into one shop and I had my thumb out of the f***ing gloves. That`s how f***ing clever I was. `Yep, thumbprints, we`ve got him.` I didn`t realise it was the fingerprints they got you on.
"I stole anything I could sell: baby clothes, old-age pensioners` stuff. I looked great in a pub with a bag full of babies` vests: `Anyone want these?` "
