Born into poverty—the entire family slept in a single room—Ozzy Osbourne endured a challenging childhood. It was a struggle from which he sought shelter in music, and his time as a member of Black Sabbath revolutionized heavy metal and catapulted him to worldwide fame. With the acclaim, however, came the excesses and heartbreaks; and in this engaging and revealing autobiography, Osbourne writes as candidly about his struggles with addictive substances and the loss of close friends as he does about his legendary stage performances and tours, and also discusses his more recent reinvention as a reality TV star. This is the definitive insider's account of the heavy metal scene from the 1970s through the 1990s and a more general cultural history of that same period. Heavy metal, rock and roll, and pop culture fans alike will find this essential reading.

 

Nacido en la pobreza—su familia entera dormía en una sola habitación—Ozzy Osbourne tuvo una niñez difícil. Fue una lucha de la cual consiguió un refugio en la música, y su tiempo como un miembro de Black Sabbath sirvió tanto para revolucionar al heavy metal como para catapultarlo a la fama. Con la aclamación, sin embargo, vinieron también los excesos y desengaños; y en esta autobiografía simpática y reveladora, Osbourne escribe tan francamente sobre su lucha con las substancias adictivas y la pérdida de amigos cercanos así como sobre sus interpretaciones y giras legendarias, y discute también su reinvención reciente como una estrella de la telerrealidad. Éste es el relato definitivo del mundo del heavy metal desde los 70 hasta los 90 y una historia cultural general del mismo periodo. Los fanáticos del heavy metal, el rock y la cultura popular considerarán esto lectura imprescindible.
