Publisher’s description: People ask me how come I’m still alive, and I don’t know what to say. When I was growing up, if you’d have put me up against a wall with the other kids from my street and asked me which one of us was gonna make it to the age of sixty, which one of us would end up with five kids and four grandkids and houses in Buckinghamshire and Beverly Hills, I wouldn’t have put money on me, no f**king way. But here I am: ready to tell my story, in my own words, for the first time.
A lot of it ain’t gonna be pretty. I’ve done some bad things in my time. I’ve always been drawn to the dark side, me. But I ain’t the devil. I’m just John Osbourne: a working-class kid from Aston, who quit his job in the factory and went looking for a good time.”
Usually I end up listening to audio books after I’ve read the book, but with I am Ozzy, I did the audio first. I really enjoyed the abridged audio, but it really just whet my appetite for the whole book. There’s a lot of additional material included along with a bunch of photos.
He’s had a life full of adventure – good and bad. And through it all, he continues to love his wife and family and maintain a sense of humor!
As expected there are F-Bombs and ‘adult’ situations throughout. So… use your own discretion.
