Rolling Stone’s newest health columnist Ozzy Osbourne is already oozing verbal gems of hilarity, and author Dave Thompson archives the legend’s internal genius in Thompson’s new book The Wit and Wisdom of Ozzy Osbourne.
After years of fronting Black Sabbath and four seasons of The Osbournes, Ozzy has developed a multilateral personality full of quirkiness and candidness, each side of which Thompson has captured in The Wit and Wisdom of Ozzy Osbourne.
“I don’t know who Ozzy is,” Osbourne says of himself. “I wake up a new person every day.” Such is the mystery of heavy metal’s most beloved and beguiled figures, a mystery that intrigues longtime fans and pop culture observers alike.
F+W Media is a book and magazine publishing company based in Cincinnati and New York. Dave Thompson is a music biographer and 40-year Black Sabbath super-fan that has interviewed Ozzy Osbourne and written about the musician for a variety of publications in the US and the UK.
