“God Bless Ozzy Osbourne” – July release


“God Bless Ozzy Osbourne”.  Produced by his son Jack, this touching and funny portrait is the official in depth story of Ozzy Osbourne, and was made with the full co-operation and approval of Ozzy and his family and friends.  “God Bless Ozzy Osbourne” features interviews and classic archive footage of Black Sabbath and Ozzy Osbourne, much of it previously unseen.  Bonus Features include a Q&A with Ozzy and Jack Osbourne, some deleted scenes and some footage from the Tribeca Film Festival.

Ozzy Osbourne is one of the most iconic figures in rock and one of the founding fathers of heavy metal, however to many his “Madman” persona has overshadowed his considerable musical achievements. “God Bless Ozzy Osbourne” tells for the first time the story of his career from the founding of Black Sabbath through to solo stardom and his wider fame beyond. These were the wild days of his prodigious drug and alcohol intake, of biting the head from a dove at a record company meeting and biting into a bat on stage, but also of the tragic death of Randy Rhoads and the reality TV show The Osbournes. The film follows Ozzy’s torturous and emotionally fraught journey from excess to sobriety, which Ozzy regards as his greatest accomplishment.

This film takes viewers inside the mind and psyche of this legendary figure.untitled

About Author

I'm a 40+ music fan. Fond mostly of rock and metal - my staple musical food delights. Originally from Northern Ireland, I am now based in the UK-Manchester. I have a hectic musical existence with regular shows and interviews. Been writing freelance for five years now with several international websites. Passionate about what I do, I have been fortunate already to interview many of my all-time musical heroes. My music passion was first created by seeing Status Quo at the tender age of 15. While I still am passionate about my rock and metal, I have found that with age my taste has diversified so that now I am actually dipping into different musical genres and styles for the first time.
