Ozzy Autobiography I AM OZZY getting 1st of October release in UK

"They’ve said some crazy things about me over the years. I mean, okay: 'He bit the head off a bat.' Yes. 'He bit the head off a dove.' Yes. But then you hear things like, 'Ozzy went to the show last night, but he wouldn’t perform until he’d killed fifteen puppies…' Now me, kill fifteen puppies? I love puppies. I’ve got eighteen of the fucking things at home. I’ve killed a few cows in my time, mind you. And the chickens. I shot the chickens in my house that night.

It haunts me, all this crazy stuff. Every day of my life has been an event. I took lethal combinations of booze and drugs for thirty fucking years. I survived a direct hit by a plane, suicidal overdoses, STDs. I've been accused of attempted murder. Then I almost died while riding over a bump on a quad bike at fucking two miles per hour.

People ask me how come I’m still alive, and I don’t know what to say. When I was growing up, if you’d have put me up against a wall with the other kids from my street and asked me which one of us was gonna make it to the age of 60, which one of us would end up with five kids and four grandkids and houses in Buckinghamshire and Beverly Hills, I wouldn’t have put money on me, no fucking way. But here I am: ready to tell my story, in my own words, for the first time.

A lot of it ain’t gonna be pretty. I’ve done some bad things in my time. I’ve always been drawn to the dark side, me. But I ain’t the devil. I’m just John Osbourne: a working class kid from Aston, who quit his job in the factory and went looking for a good time."

Frank, fearless, and very funny, I AM OZZY is his highly anticipated autobiography, in which Ozzy comes clean: in all senses.

Ozzy Osbourne was born in Aston, Birmingham in 1948. He has sold over a hundred million records both with Sabbath and as an award-winning solo artist. He has five children and lives with his wife Sharon in California and Buckinghamshire.

I AM OZZY will be released Oct 1st, 2009 in the UK with a US release coming soon.

So glad for you Ozzy! I'm still praying for your Sharon & family and cannot wait to read about your life! You have accomplished a lot and should be proud of yourself. Thank you also for sharing a small part of it with us on "The Osbournes". Life is a rollercoaster with ups and downs for us all. You know you have a voice that was a gift from God. p.s. too much darkness is not good. We need the LIGHT only Jesus brings.

Thats' great news, At last a chance to get to know the real Ozzy from his own point of view. Now Ozzy, how can I get a SIGNED COPY!!!!!!!

Cheers
