Ozzy Osbourne is one of the most iconic and influential figures in metal. One could argue that we wouldn’t be where we are in heavy music today had it not been for Black Sabbath‘s original lineup, and you just have to appreciate him for what he did for metal. The recent documentary God Bless Ozzy Osbourne details some of the inner-workings of the man’s 40 year career. Here’s the official synopsis:
Ozzy Osbourne’s four decade track record as a culturally relevant artist is unprecedented, but his personal struggles have been shrouded in secrecy, until now. Featuring never before seen footage uncovered from the archives and interviews with Paul McCartney, Tommy Lee and others, God Bless Ozzy Osbourne is the first documentary to take viewers inside the complex mind of rock’s great icon. Emerging from a working class family in war torn England, Osbourne and his neighborhood friends formed Black Sabbath and invented heavy metal. Plagued by self doubt, Osbourne the solo superstar went on a binge that lasted 40 years. God Bless Ozzy Osbourne will relive the highs of his triumphs as well as his journey to sobriety, which Ozzy regards as his greatest accomplishment
