The Wit and Wisdom of Ozzy Osbourne by Dave Thompson

All Aboard the Crazy Train

This is Ozzy Osbourne in all his raw and unfiltered glory; four decades worth of his best quotes, oddest observations, risqué retorts, and yes, even articulate ponderings. Ozzy might come across as a nutter (and rightly so), but when you sit down and seriously consider what he's saying . . . well, he's f**king Ozzy Osbourne and he's got things to say!

The Prince of Darkness sounds off on various topics including:

  • Black Sabbath: "We thought, Let's scare the whole f**king planet with music."
  • Drugs and Alcohol: "I was always a miserable drunk."
  • Rehab: "I still take medication, but not for fun."
  • Himself: "I don't know who Ozzy is. I wake up a new person every day."

The Wit & Wisdom of Ozzy Osbourne reveals Ozzy's philosophy of life and reflects the spirit of the man who made Black Sabbath famous, Christian groups frightened, and The Osbournes–a hit reality TV show.

This book has little substance. It's a collection of quotes by Ozzy, taken from magazine interviews and books. They are loosely held together by snippets of information given to us by the author at the start of each chapter. Some of these quotes, taken out of context, make Ozzy sound far more sinister than he's ever been. I am a big Ozzy fan but this book bored me. Nothing here is new. Much of this can be found in Ozzy's autobiography - 'I Am Ozzy' - which is far more entertaining.
