God Bless Ozzy Osbourne Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: Ozzy Osbourne is one of the most iconic figures in rock and one of the founding fathers of heavy metal, however to many his Madman persona has overshadowed his considerable musical achievements. God Bless Ozzy Osbourne tells for the first time the story of his career from the founding of Black Sabbath through to solo stardom and his wider fame beyond. These were the wild days of his prodigious drug and alcohol intake, of biting the head from a dove at a record company meeting and biting into a bat on stage but also of the tragic death of Randy Rhoads and the reality TV show The Osbournes. The film follows Ozzy s torturous and emotionally fraught journey from excess to sobriety, which Ozzy regards as his greatest accomplishment. Featuring never before seen footage, new interviews with Ozzy himself, his brothers and sisters, his children, his bandmates in Black Sabbath and those who both inspired him and were inspired by him, this is the first film to take viewers inside the mind and psyche of this legendary figure.

Review: We love Ozzy here at the Legion.  Not so much his music funnily, but rather his persona and his family.  We LOVED the Osbournes MTV show back in the day.  This new documentary, partially done by his own son Jack, is an amazing and in-depth look at the life of the man himself.  The film takes you from his early childhood through Black solo and beyond.  It blows the lid off of the behind the scenes of the MTV show, which was very cool to see.  The basis for the film is Ozzy's sobriety.  Its new still and its tender, but its there.  Ozzy is finally healthy and clean and its so good to see.  This is an amazing documentary and we think Jack has a great future with his new company...though I do think Ozzy was more candid because he was being interviewed by his son.  This one is a must own.
