Whether as a solo artist or as the lead singer of heavy metal Godfathers Black Sabbath, self-described “Prince Of F***ing Darkness” Ozzy Osbourne is one of the most infamous figures in all rock n’ roll. However the new documentary God Bless Ozzy Osbourne, which premieres tonight at 8/7C on Palladia and re-airs tomorrow on VH1 Classic, reveals there’s much more to the man than his legendary battles with addiction and tales of biting the heads off any number of winged animals. Featuring interviews with family, bandmates and the man himself, it traces Ozzy’s rough and tumble upbringing in Birmingham, England and rise to the upper reaches of rock royalty with all it’s tempatations. Go inside the diary of the madman tonight and keep your Sabbath high all night and watch the television premiere of Live… Gathered in Their Masses, featuring performances from Black Sabbath’s triumphant 2013 world tour.
Hear Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler talk about how Ozzy ended up as lead singer for Black Sabbath in this clip from the documentary God Bless Ozzy Osbourne.
