God Bless Ozzy (DVD)
Released: 2011, Eagle Vision
Reviewer: Celtic Bob
GOD BLESS OZZY is THE best documentary on Ozzy ever produced. This beats out the old DON’T BLAME ME video from many years back. While the DON’T BLAME ME was an excellent documentary at the time (if memory serves correct). This one just takes it a step further in terms of quality. Ozzy’s son Jack produced an exceptional pice of film with this documentary.
Filmed over the course of three years and by using old footage, Ozzy’s youngest child Jack creates an informative and unbiased look at his father. You hear stories from his beginnings in the UK, through the Sabbath days and right up to his modern day newly found sobriety. All the well publicized incidents are obviously included as well as a few more that were not widely known. It tells the story without hiding the bad stuff or trying to re-write history as if it never happened. It is all here; the good, the bad and the ugly. There are interviews with 4 of his 5 kids, his wife Sharon as well as his longtime assistant Tony. It shows how Osbourne has turned his life around and at 60 is in better shape both physically and mentally then he has ever been.
An excellent film that is a must see for all Metal fans. You will not be disappointed. The bonus features add even more to the DVD especially the Q&A with Jack and Ozzy. Very informative.
