Editor reviews

Rockview specializes in audiobiographies of musical superstars complete with personal interviews with the artists themselves. Take a sometimes poignant, often hilarious trip into the mind of Ozzy Osbourne, the "King of Heavy Metal". In conversation during the 1990s with the equally funny Chris Tetle, Ozzy slurs, jokes, and argues from his "second home", the Red Lion Pub. Brimming with British colloquialisms that are sure to please the American listener, the metal pioneer recalls his arrests, divorce, addictions, and, of course, his music. Some of the dialogue is unexpectedly frank, as when Ozzy criticizes his old hero, Zeppelin’s Robert Plant, for "not giving the kids what they want" by playing his classic hits. In this vintage audiobiography, Rockview gives every Ozzy fan exactly what he wants.

Summary

Ozzy Osbourne is the King of Heavy Metal. You will realise why as you listen to this compilation of classic, unique and exclusive personal interviews. Recorded in an intimate setting, during the nineties, a relaxed Ozzy tells his story, talks about his musical roots, his attitude to drugs, divorce, and remarriage to Sharon. Founder member and eccentric front-man of the world's foremost heavy metal band, Black Sabbatth, Ozzy's uncompromising musical stance is evident with lyrics about life and death, rebellion and destruction. As OZZY says, he gives the kids exactly what they want and he remains loyal to Metal with outrageous stage shows, gothic settings, magic and audience participation.

This is not a music release or endorsed by the artist or record company. Due to the nature of these recordings, sound quality may vary. However, these live audiobiographies are sensational and live, often revealing intimate details. A must for the collector, music buff and fan.

Hard to Recognise the Value of This

This is a series (three I think) of interviews held between Ozzy Osbourne and (late) rock DJ Chris Tetley. The interviews are clearly from the early 1980s (based on the subject matter), and are strung together one after the other - which is why it is actually a little difficult to identify how many separate interviews there are. There is no additional commentary - just the discussions between Ozzy and Chris - and also including Sharon Osbourne in one of the interviews. The interviews are not without interest - consisting largely of Ozzy and Chris's opinions, with Ozzy in particular contradicting himself across different interviews. To be honest though - I think you will always find other audiobooks that are much better value for money than this.

Short but not bad

Short but not bad. It's just a journalist interviewing Ozzy. Worth it for the low price.
