Giveaway - I Am Ozzy - Ozzy Osbourne


Still alive and still rockin'.

"People ask me how come I'm still alive, and I don't know what to say. When I was growing up, if you'd have put me up against a wall with the other kids from my street and asked me which one of us was gonna make it to the age of sixty, which one of us would end up with five kids and four grandkids and houses in Buckinghamshire and Beverly Hills, I wouldn't have put money on me, no f**king way. But here I am: ready to tell my story, in my own words, for the first time."

"The final word in sex, drugs and rock-and-roll, I AM OZZY is the heavy metal pioneer's unbelievable story in his own words, for the very first time."

Want a chance to hear what Ozzy has to say? Courtesy of The Hachette Book Group I have 3 audio book copies of I Am Ozzy to giveaway.

Give yourself a sneak preview - listen to an excerpt of I Am Ozzy or read an excerpt of I Am Ozzy.

Open to both the US and Canada, no po boxes please. Ends Sat. Feb. 27 at 6 pm EST. Your entry? Leave a comment about Ozzy, Sharon, the kids, the show, Black Sabbath or anything related. ....Get on the Crazy Train....

Watch for my review next month.

Sharon is so strong to put up with the years he put her through. He was a wild man in concert years ago

Awesome! The Girl and I love to rock out to Iron Man and Crazy Train. (I hope that doesn't reflect poorly on my parenting LOL) I grew up listening to his music in the 80s.

Funniest thing I can tell ya'll is about my 14 year old nephew. He is a HUGE Black Sabbath fan. Funny thing is, he wasn't even sperm when they were making music.

I love Sabbath, Ozzy or Dio. Love Ozzy solo, and the family is interesting enough too. Sharon is a riot, Kelly is blunt,k and Jack is odd. Good combo right?!

I love, love, love Ozzy! I saw him back in 1986 when I was a kid and will never forget it. He was a huge part of my teen years and I cannot wait to learn more about him and his life. I find him fascinating.

sharon54220 said...

Memoirs are one of my favorite genres to read.

Ozzy is great,even though I have a hard time understanding him. I just love Sharon - she is a rock. And Kelly, I was very impressed with her on Dancing with the Stars. She is a lady. Jack, to be honest I dont know to much about him.

Thanks for the chance.

I cannot believe the evolution of Ozzy. Some older rockers are getting old and you can tell; he has been through heck and back and still going strong. We did think Sharon was the best on Charm School. THank you

I always used to think Sharon was seriously classy until I heard her tearing apart Susan Boyle and calling her ugly and what not. Still, I like Ozzy and would love to win this.

I have to admit, when I was younger, I was never a fan of Black Sabbath. It wasn't my kind of music. But now that I am older I find Ozzie and his impact on the music industry fascinating. This would be great to listen to. Thank you for the chance to win.

We can all learn a lot from Ozzy, he is basically a very good person who just took a few wrong turns in life.

I`ve been into Ozzy since I discovered Black Sabbath way back in 1977. Music would not have been the same without him!

My honey/hubby is a huge Ozzy fan and I know he'd love this prize. He's also gotten into audiobooks and wants/needs them more than ever now that he finally found a job - which requires a 3 hour per day commute. The Ozzy audiobook would make his day(s)!
