Book | The Official Ozzy Osbourne Site


Hi Ozzy,

Book was great!!! After reading your book, I saw where you came from, the problems you had and what you had to do to do to get to the top. It was funny, sad and very moving. And I do agree with you, I don't know why Sharron stayed. She has to be in LOVE. You are a very lucky man!! I have another reason why I'm emailing you. I'd like you to visit my friend's myspace site to see what you think of L.A.W.'s band, They have a few songs and a video on line. They do all they're own music. I thought you might have a few minutes to critique the band. They are very good. They just haven't had a good break. Thank you for your time.



Haven't gotten it yet. I want to though.

I know it is a slight distraction BUT Tony's BOOK IRON MAN is a very good read as well as I AM OZZY! It puts a slghtly different point of view on the Sabbath story! Well worth the money

If NON of YOU have typed "Home of Metal . com" into your search engine, then WHY NOT! It has some true metal heads that are not a sandwich short of a picnic like some groups and sites! Admittedly, most of the members of the facebook group "Home of Metal" are fron Britain/UK, but the more the merrier. Some may well learn something about the roots of Metal, Sabbath, Zepplin, Judas Priest, even Naplam Death get a mention (Not my cup of tea, thrash/death metal, but it plays a part).

I went to the "Hell for Leather" exhibition on 160711 at the Walsall Leather Museum. It feature a section dedicated to JUDAS PRIEST, and quite naturally the town of Walsall and its WORLD role in the leather industry. They are know for their Saddle making, briddles, etc!

I have posted my two visites to BMAG "Home of Metal", and the "Hell for Leather" exhibition. Just remember where you saw it first. Then you can say yes Andy you are the DADDY! Especially when I go to BMAG a third time to get what I failed to capture (audio/visiual - I was told to STOP Videoing) There was a DVD playing behind a glass case with reflection on it so I got the interview with Tony Iommi talking abut how he lost the end of his fingers, and the interview with Judas Priest. I thought I was filming an interview with Ozzy but it appears I failed to hit the record button, so I will have to go back. The interview with Ozzy was in a mock sitting room, but at least you could hear what Ozzy was saying over the overall backing sound of a Judas Priest Sound track that was on a loop. And then I aim to go to the WEDNESBURY Museum for their "Home of Metal Exhibition"! Not sure if I will be going to the Wolvehampton Museum and their "Home of Metal exhibition". Well, the basics are listed on the HOME of METAL web site

So I have been between a foot/inches away from some most precious artifacts.

So just remember if you see my photos/exhibition info else where just remember WHO TOLD YOU ALL ABOUT IT! So go on, check it out, and ENJOY! Feel free to save for personal use, but remember who owns the rights for those who want to make money on them!

The beauty of living where I live, it is ONLY 14 miles to 14 LODGE ROAD, ASTON, where OZZY grew up!

It is ALSO a Beauty of where I live, is that it is ONLY 7 miles to Birmingham City Centre, and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery (BMAG). Appart from history, art, and the like, there is an exhibition that you have to pay to go in and see. I have NOW, been TWICE at £6 per visit. It is CALLED "Home of METAL". Just type in your search engine HOME OF METAL, to find out what is on offer. OK, I have taken the best part of 360 photos. Some have been repeated, BUT are much improved on the orginals that I took.

On my second visit, I took my camcorder, and DID NOT hide it. So I was stood at this display case, trying to get a good picture without the reflection of the over head lights, and me holding the phone hand set over the microphone. The back ground sound is of JUDAS PRIEST. SADLY, the sound of the DVD is drowned out. So we do not have, Tony Iommi's voice telling the interviewer about loosing the end of his fingers, and an interview with Judas Priest! Then a nice man on security told me that, I could take as many photos as I liked, BUT NO VIDEO! So on the way back around I sat down, and thought that, I recorded Ozzy giving an interview. As luck would have it, I managed NOT to be able to record this interview! So I WILL HAVE TO GO BACK again, with my dictaphone with telephone pick up microphone, and the camcorda for the Ozzy Interview. At least it is quieter where the DVD of the Interview is.

There are original art work for Speak + Talk of the Devil, back stage passes, plectrums, Concert T shirts, a practice area where you can dress up and play drums, guitar, etc. There are numerous Ozzy, Sabbath, Judas priest, napalm Death (not my scene), etal. There are original records, concert tickets, posters, etal.

It is ALSO the beauty of where I live, that another exhibition in the HOME of METAL, is at the Walsall Leather Museum. It proports to contain Leather Stage cloths belonging primarily JUDAS PRIEST! So Guess where I am going this weekend! There are some Leather stage wear items at the main HOME OF METAL exhibition at the BMAG.

The Best T shirt was agfed 5 - 7 so It will not fit, But it states that "Thou shalt Remember the Sabbath". So on my second visit, I bought the Baby Grow version. WELL, you never know I might just might become a father at some stage. Then again, if you can see my Face Book Page you can see ALL the photos of this exhibition, and the exploits of OZ BEAR around the world.

It is ALSO the beauty where I live, I can go and see the sights where OZZY and co grew up, and played. I have a link for Birchfield school, which shows a series of photos when Ozzy and Sharon visited the school. So try it in your search engine.

And finally my view of the book. You took the words right out of my mouth.

I m a brazilian 15 y o guy , ahuge fan of you work sinc Black Sabbath .
I had ah idea , hoping you read it.
O was heaning Let me hear you screan , and thought you downing slowly ya . Ffloating before the music starts ( the guitar solo before ) . Floating over the people . Your Clothing must be totally white .
When you reach the end of the stadium ( apposite of the stage ) , a kind of explosion ocuers , your vest becomes dark end you are pulled back to the stage , whith a lot of smoke going out fron there , covering all the stage . A projection be hind the stage , ou the smoke shows your face screaming .
Its I said , you float back to stage through your mouth`s projection.
when the clhoir begins fireworks surges from your back and behind the drummer .
It air flow pushes the fire to the front.
Actually It would be better ifdtele this idea personally to you.
I hope meeting your , I hope you are crazy cnough to deal with , so please come to brazil and we`ll meet and change some ideas.
