‘God Bless Ozzy Osbourne’ is an unrivalled look into the mind of legendary rock icon Ozzy Osbourne. Shot over the course of three years, audiences will experience the life story of Ozzy, as seen through the eyes of his youngest child, Jack Osbourne, who worked alongside directors Mike Fleiss and Mike Piscitelli. During the documentary, Ozzy will recount his troubled youth, his early career with Black Sabbath and the impact of fame and addictions on his first marriage. Viewers will also witness the second chapter of his life as a family man with Sharon, during which his addictions grew to a frightening level, as well as hear Ozzy and his children explain his attempts at staying clean, ultimately resulting in more than five years of sobriety.
Music fans will also see live performances from around the world, including rare behind the scenes clips of Ozzy on and off stage, in his dressing rooms pre-show, to his nights in a series of hotel rooms. Throughout ‘God Bless Ozzy Osbourne’, audiences are given an inside look into the life of a rock star, from the good times to the bad.
