February 29, 2012 | Trade Paperback

I Am Ozzy is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
"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 f**king 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 f**king 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 f**king 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 sixty, 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 f**king 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."

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A fantastic very interesting and yet funny read! Being a Black Sabbath fan as a teenager and then being an Ozzy Osbourne fan I found this book to bea very enjoyable to read. Very realistic and quite passionate and funny at the same time. Ozzy has a delightful sense of humour and is quite honest about his life from the start as a youth and then his enterring into the music rock and roll world. As Ozzy grew older then it appeared that he realizes that his family was and always will be number 1. Sharon Osbourne, his wife of whom he married in 1982, was in my opinion his saving grace in many ways.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Entertaining and hilarious I couldn't believe that there was no review posted -- so I jumped on board. Highly entertaining and hilarious, as you might expect from the modern TV-show-character incarnation of Ozzy. Such antics from the music industry of the early 70s! Excess is an understatement! A rags-to-riches story as well!
