Born into poverty--the entire family slept in a single room--Ozzy Osbourne endured a challenging childhood. It was a struggle from which he sought shelter in music, and his time as a member of Black Sabbath revolutionized heavy metal and catapulted him to worldwide fame. With the acclaim, however, came the excesses and heartbreaks; and in this engaging and revealing autobiography, Osbourne writes as candidly about his struggles with addictive substances and the loss of close friends as he does about his legendary stage performances and tours, and also discusses his more recent reinvention as a reality TV star. This is the definitive insider's account of the heavy metal scene from the 1970s through the 1990s and a more general cultural history of that same period. Heavy metal, rock and roll, and pop culture fans alike will find this essential reading. "Nacido en la pobreza--su familia entera dormia en una sola habitacion--Ozzy Osbourne tuvo una ninez dificil. Fue una lucha de la cual consiguio un refugio en la musica, y su tiempo como un miembro de Black Sabbath sirvio tanto para revolucionar al heavy metal como para catapultarlo a la fama. Con la aclamacion, sin embargo, vinieron tambien los excesos y desenganos; y en esta autobiografia simpatica y reveladora, Osbourne escribe tan francamente sobre su lucha con las substancias adictivas y la perdida de amigos cercanos asi como sobre sus interpretaciones y giras legendarias, y discute tambien su reinvencion reciente como una estrella de la telerrealidad. Este es el relato definitivo del mundo del heavy metal desde los 70 hasta los 90 y una historia cultural general del mismo periodo. Los fanaticos del heavy metal, el rock y la cultura popular consideraran esto lectura imprescindible."
