We all know that Black Sabbath have ruled the kingdom of doom-riff Apocalypse rock since they hatched in the 1970s. But what no one could foresee, would be the emergence of vocalist/frontman Ozzy Osbourne as some sort of multi-dimensional super hero, attracting the limelight of not only the music industry but equally the entertainment media and the political establishment.
This newly revised and updated edition uncovers the 'Osbourne Metamorphosis', focusing on the highly successful MTV series The Osbournes, a reality-grounded serial that follows the foibles and frenzy of his life. Steven Rosen now details his foray into the world of television as well as highlighting his rubbing of elbows with the stars of Hollywood, President George W. Bush and Her Majesty the Queen.
John 'Ozzy' Osbourne is an enigma, a poor boy who could have easily ended his life as a disenchanted jail tenant. But, as you'll read in this third rendering, this Birmingham boy discovered music - and in time, the world discovered him.
With special guest foreword by Ozzy Osbourne.
