Ozzy Osbourne Documentary ‘God Bless Ozzy’ Gets DVD Release Date
‘God Bless Ozzy Osbourne,’ the new documentary co-produced by the legendary singer’s son Jack, will be available on Blu-Ray and DVD on Nov. 15. The life of the former Black Sabbath frontman and solo star, as well as his journey from dove-biting madman to sober parent, are explored in the film.
Simply saying the word ‘Ozzy’ conjures up such a mirage of images, Jack found it a difficult task to tie up his father’s 62 years of highs and lows in 90 minutes. Well, take our word for it, he did a great job.
During a question and answer segment at the Tribeca Film Festival, Jack admitted that another challenge was to get his Dad to open up, drop the “Ozzy” persona and just become John Michael Osbourne. It was also important to Jack and those involved to capture him as a person versus centering in only on his career.
The film sustains perfect balance, depicting the success of a heavy metal icon and his enormous influence all the while portraying him as the absent father and substance addicted hooligan that he was before getting sober.
Five years clean, Ozzy is now a respected family man, personal advice columnist, and if you believe the rumors, about to reunite with Black Sabbath. It’s high time (no pun intended) that ‘God Bless Ozzy Osbourne’ shows up in digital form so that we can witness this crazy train of a life journey on our television sets anytime we please.
