Summary *Adult Themes**This program contains animal treatment that may concern some viewers*Ozzy Osbourne's 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 neighbourhood friends formed Black Sabbath and invented heavy metal. For ten years, Ozzy was happy to feed the myth of the 'Rock 'n' Roll wild man', living a life that was extreme.The life worked for a while, but then it began to back-fire. He lost his family, his wife, even his livelihood when Black Sabbath fired him. The glamour had been leached away, the fun had faded. What was left was an alcoholic with a death sentence.Astonishingly, he resuscitated himself and came back from the brink of extinction, thanks in no small part to his wife and manager Sharon, who engineered a comeback that was as unlikely as it was triumphant. Ozzy became one of the biggest-selling artists of the 80s. But the good times didn't take. The death of Ozzy's musical collaborator Randy Rhoads and Ozzy's father sent him into a tailspin that lasted almost 30 years.Featuring never-before-seen footage uncovered from the archives and interviews with Sir Paul McCartney, Tommy Lee, Henry Rollins and others, God Bless Ozzy Osbourne is the first documentary to take viewers inside the mind and psyche of a legendary and timeless cultural figure.PRODUCTION DETAILS:Produced by Next Films / Schweet Entertaiment. Executive Producer: Sharon Osbourne
