Ozzy Osbourne: ‘I should have died 100 times and never did’

Jack Osborne has produced a feature length documentary film about his dad called'God Bless Ozzy Osbourne'. The film covers all aspects of Ozzy’s life, spanning back to his childhood in Birmingham, his years with Black Sabbath and his subsequent solo career.

The nme reports that at the first UK screening of the documentary on Wednesday (June 8th) Jack simply stated: ‘I hope you enjoy the film.’ Fortunately, however, Ozzy’s son has been more vocal elsewhere - he explained that he wanted to make the film to show how different his dad was since the MTV show 'The Osbournes'. He said:'Everyone has seen The Osbournes and I don't think that people were really aware that when we were doing the show he really was in the clutches of his addiction [...].Since the show stopped he has been sober for five years and he is a completely different person.'

Ozzy Osbourne, who has battled with drug and alcohol addiction for years, recalls once waking up after a heavy night to find himself in the central reservations of a freeway; he reflects: ‘I should have died 100 times and never did. If you wanted me to do something, tell me not to. I can't remember the 80s at all. Never happened.’

And yet, as his son hopes to demonstrate, Ozzy is now on the straight on the narrow. The 60-year-old singer recently received his driver’s licence, leading him to comment: ‘When I got successful I got guns, knives and a motorbike. But it's only now I'm able to drive!’

The trailer for ‘God Bless Ozzy Osbourne’ is now available to watch now, courtesy of youtube.
