God Bless Ozzy Osbourne [Screening] to reveal the diary of a madman or a genius?
There's no doubt about it - there have been some excellent music-documentaries or cinema screenings during the past few years. Recently, we've seen "Upside Down - The Creation Records Story", "Lemmy" (about, er, Lemmy from Motorhead) and Foo Fighters and Faithless with their live-and-direct films, "Passing the Baton" and "Back and Forth" respectively, either hitting the big screen or the small screen (or both), enlightening us . Oh, and there's also been the JLS one as well - ho hum.
Next up is "God Bless Ozzy Osbourne", a warts-'n'-all documentary about Birmingham's wayward and prodigal son who has risen from the depths of platinum-selling dark-metal and druggy despair, to become something of a top-geezer and all-round potty-mouthed good egg, with marvellously dysfunctional family in tow. What's not to like?
"God Bless Ozzy Osbourne" will be screened at dozens of UK cinemas on two dates in September, the 16th and 22nd. Vue and Showcase cinemas will be the prime locations right across the British Isles, including a couple in his home-town Birmingham, plus large cities such as Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow and Manchester, small towns like Staines, Hamilton and Bury and a few London/M25 screenings like Croydon, Romford and Islington. Tickets cost £10 and go on general sale on Tuesday at 10am.
This new film features interviews with said family-members, including producer and son Jack, his daughter Kelly and tolerant wife and TV talent-judge, Sharon. Musical insights come from Paul McCartney, Henry Rollins and many more, giving accounts of the lows and highs (both legal and illegal) of Ozzy's never-dull career. It's a shame people only seem to remember destructive and comical Ozzy, rather than his exemplary contribution to the British metal scene of the '70s, with his Black Sabbath and solo works, and the global brand he still performs with around the world - himself. Album-titles, "Diary of a Madman" and "Bark at the Moon", probably said more about the man than he ever could - until now.
