Re-released by Eagle Rock this month is the revealing documentary movie 'God Bless Ozzy Osbourne'. Produced by his son Jack, this touching and funny portrait is the official in-depth story of Ozzy and was made with the full co-operation and approval of the man himself and his family and friends.

'God Bless Ozzy Osbourne' features interviews and classic archive footage of Black Sabbath and Ozzy Osbourne, much of it previously unseen. Bonus features include a Q&A with Ozzy and Jack Osbourne, some deleted scenes and some footage from the Tribeca Film Festival.

Ozzy is one of the most iconic figures in rock and one of the founding fathers of Heavy Metal, however to many his Madman persona has overshadowed his considerable musical achievements. 'God Bless Ozzy Osbourne' tells for the first time the story of his career from the founding of Black Sabbath through to solo stardom and his wider fame beyond.

These were the wild days of his prodigious drug and alcohol intake, of biting the head from a dove at a record company meeting and biting into a bat on stage, but also of the tragic death of Randy Rhoads and the reality TV show The Osbournes. The film follows Ozzy's torturous and emotionally fraught journey from excess to sobriety, which Ozzy regards as his greatest accomplishment.

This film takes viewers inside the mind and psyche of this legendary figure. You can read MetalTalk's review by Mark Taylor right here
