Oddly enough, rock musician Ozzy Osbourne has managed to become an iconic performer who is well known around the world. It is quite surprising for a young lad of Birmingham, living in destitution, to become a rock hero for the ages. Ozzy is a true icon of rock history and is a fascinating figure at that.
The first stirring of this man and his sizable talents began with a band called Earth. This band, in the late 60s, was already experimenting with the heavy tones and imagery that would soon come to define a musical era. Morphing into Black Sabbath, the singer, along with Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Bill Ward created a sound and style that has been copied by many, but mastered by few.
Black Sabbath was arguably the creator of what came to be known as heavy metal, and at the very least defined the genre. Using electric guitars with nascent English amplification, this band played at incredibly loud levels, while still maintaining the delicate nuances that are so important for quality music.
After this band broke up, Ozzy embarked on a solo career that in many ways eclipsed his work with Sabbath. With a string of young and relatively unknown guitarists, most of whom have gone on to great success, he released a series of albums through the 80s that again defined a genre and a decade. With the likes of Randy Rhodes and Zack Wilde, his recordings provided a sonic assault that was only matched by its brilliant writing.
As the latest chapter in an incredible career, he has become a reality television star, along with two of his children and his wife, Sharon. This family gained tremendous attention by broadcasting the family foibles of his brood on MTV. Their all-too-human lives were the fodder for many a water-cooler conversation.
As far as impact as an artist is concerned, few have reached the heights, and the depths, of Ozzy Osbourne. By living a life of excess, creativity, and accessibility, this artist has reached an audience that continues to revere and respect him.
