This is, without a doubt, the most honest and shocking biography I have ever read. At times it was so hilarious that I woke my wife while she was asleep.
At other times you see the sadness and the pain that drugs and alcohol can cause, and tears will surely flood your eyes. The hurt that children suffer as their father comes across as an idiot or alcoholic.
A simple straight-forward story of a wannabe singer who started out with nothing except a grim determination to succeed and finished up with more than he could ever imagine. The lifestyle and excesses of Ozzy might not be to everyone’s taste, but it is important to know his side of the story. His bingeing is legendary, as is his love for his wife Sharon, and the never-ending sadness for the loss of Randy Rhoads.. And of course his love for music, which gave so many dreams (and nightmares) to all those who saw meaning in his lyrics.
And naturally, genuine regret for his actions…
This is a book that should be made compulsory reading. Best autobiography I ever read…and I’ve got a lot of those under my belt.
