A&E Network’s Emmy Award winning “Biography” banner will premiere a new documentary special celebrating one of rock’s biggest stars. Featuring exclusive interviews and archival footage, Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne delves into the many lives and incredible career of the man who has personified rock and roll rebellion for decades. Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne will premiere on Labor Day (September 7th) at 9:00 PM (ET/PT).  Watch a preview below.

Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne traces Ozzy’s life from his childhood in poverty and time in prison, to fronting the iconic Black Sabbath and a successful solo career, to one of rock’s elder statesman and a loveable 21st century television dad. The two-hour documentary explores how OZZY has continually reinvented himself and his career to propel himself toward greater success. As the Grammy-winning artist turns 70, he reflects on the intimate details of his successes, failures, and his unique ability for survival and perseverance-including never-before-seen interviews about his recent Parkinson’s diagnosis. The documentary, a selection of the 2020 SXSW Film Festival, also features interviews with Sharon, Kelly and Jack Osbourne as well as friends and fellow musicians including Rick Rubin, Ice-T, Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie, Jonathan Davis, Post Malone and more. 

The documentary follows a busy 2020 for OSBOURNE. His critically acclaimed Ordinary Man album–released in February–marked Osbourne’s first new solo music in almost 10 years. It was the #1 rock album in the world, topping multiple charts in its triumphant first week of release. Worldwide, Ordinary Man entered the charts in the Top Ten in seven countries making it the highest charting album of Ozzy’s career. Recorded in Los Angeles, the album features producer Andrew Watt on guitars, Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses) on bass and Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) on drums. Beyond the core band, Ordinary Man, features a who’s-who of Ozzy friends and collaborators including Elton John, Slash, Post Malone, and Tom Morello.

    Rappers, Morello Yellowbelly, Marilyn Manson, I’ll pass. I’m a little pissed right now at the Osbournes and Black Sabbath anyway.

    Do we get the real version or the Sharon version?

  • RobT on

    Yeah Doug, think I know why. Would rather not get into it, same goes for Tom Morello, though he is a unique guitarist and when he’s with Mr. Trunk he seems cool some of the time.
    As for Mr. Manson , ehh neither here nor there, but I do like some of what’s termed as industrial aka Rammstein, NIN & such and am a fan of an artist Manson and I believe Trent Reznor has covered, that being Gary Numan.

      When I went to see the Play It Loud: Instruments Of Rock N’ Roll exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, they had a room with four complete gear set ups with companion videos. The musicians featured were: Eddie Van Halen, Jimmy Page, Keith Richards and Tom Morello. I watched everyone, with the exception of Morello. I never liked his sound, and had no interest in hearing how he cultivated it. To say he is heavy on the wha wha pedal is an understatement, and far from unique, as we all know it was a signature sound of Tony Iommi.

      If you, or anyone else, who missed my posts on this exhibit and would like to see them, or just revisit them, I have posted the links below.

      Hi Dana,

      I was unsure myself calling Morello “unique.” But being my break time was ending and I didn’t have my thesaurus, I couldn’t get hung up on an adjective. I couldn’t think of anything else to write.
      To be sure, I’m no fan of what Morello preaches and besides a couple of Audioslave songs, don’t really listen to anything he’s played on but I didn’t want the tone of my post to be totally negative so that and the fact that I’m somewhat indifferent towards Marilyn Manson was what I put down. I liked your reply none the less and just had to counter reply.

      As for the subject matter, Ozzy Osbourne- I liked him more when I knew about him less.
      My favorite player associated with Ozzy was of course Randy Rhoads.

      I agree, Ozzy, had managed to surround himself with top notch talent. Rhoads is my favorite guitarist, but let’s not forget Bob Daisley, who is an excellent lyricist/song writer, and Lee Kerslake who helped to co-write some of those amazing tunes.

      I also appreciate Wylde and Lee, but Rhoads was in another stratosphere.
