I Am Ozzy Ozzy Osbourne & Chris Ayres Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

"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."

  • Funny!!!!

    By FhatBoi Nation
    I was never into ozzy music but this book was fun to read. Couldn't put it down. I'm actually a fan of his music now lol. This is a must read!
  • What a great read.

    By Malhalla
    This was so much fun to read. I love the way that Ozz describes things and his sense of humor is untouchable. The book mostly covers his life with Sabbath and the early years and very little about the crappy show that even Ozz himself hated. All those old stories and he, Tony, Bill and Geezer back then are priceless. He also talks lots about his childhood and growing up the way he did. If you are a fan this book is required reading, if you aren't then you will still enjoy it.

    Thesis exactly why I had to hide my Ozzy tapes in other tape cases like Simon and Garfunkel or Sandy Patty. - so my Dad wouldn't see it and throw it away!!!!!!
