Ozzy Osbourne

December 3, 1948, Birmingham, England

“Could be worse… I could be Sting.” ~ Ozzy Osbourne

As the lead vocalist with Black Sabbath in the 1970s and throughout his solo career that began in the 1980s, Ozzy Osbourne has been one of the top performers in the rock 'n' roll field known as heavy metal. With a reputation for bizarre acts and occult lyrics, he has both delighted fans and outraged critics. With the help and support of his wife and manager, Sharon, Osbourne has continually reinvented himself into the new millennium with projects including an ongoing summer festival called Ozzfest, and a wildly successful television series, The Osbournes, on cable television's MTV. ~ Musicianguide: Ozzy Osbourne ~ retrieved December 3, 2014 © Musicianguide

For four working class boys from Aston, that's quite an achievement, and certainly, it's safe to say that history will remember Black Sabbath. ~ Ultimate Guitar: Tony Iommi interview ~ February 13, 2010 © Ultimate Guitar
