God Bless Ozzy Osbourne
Ozzy Osbournes’ four-decade track record as a culturally relevant musical artist is unprecedented, but his personal struggles have been shrouded in myth and secrecy. In some ways, Ozzy’s fame has been predicated on his prodigious drug and alcohol intake, his musical accomplishments overshadowed by his “Madman” persona.
Emerging from a working class family in war-torn England, Osbourne and his neighborhood friends formed Black Sabbath and invented heavy metal. For ten years, Ozzy was happy to feed the myth of the Rock and Roll Wildman, living a life that was extreme even by the most bacchanalian standards of his chosen profession.
