'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, with five kids and four grandkids and houses in Buckinghamshire and California, 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. 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.'

About The Author

Born John Michael Osbourne in Birmingham, 1948, Ozzy Osbourne is one of rock music's most enduring figures. In the last few years he has also become one of television's best loved personalities via the wildly successful hit MTV show 'The Osbournes'.

    Comments about I Am Ozzy:

    what a book, from humble beginnings to the big leagues, Ozzy's lough out loud accounts of his time as a child as a very bad thief, to his jobs in the horn factory and slaughter house right up through to the triumphant rise and stardom with Black Sabbath and his solo career. The only downside i have with the book is the constant reference to how much booze and drugs he took so it kinda spoiled it a bit, having said that WOW
