Test your knowledge on the rock icon ahead of the release of his new album and his UK tour.
Rock icon Ozzy Osbourne will release his 12th studio album Ordinary Man on Friday 21 February 2020.
Fans can pre-order the album now through the official Ozzy Osbourne store.
His first album in almost decade, Ordinary Man was recorded in Los Angeles and features producer Andrew Watt on guitar, Guns ‘N’ Roses veteran Duff McKagan on bass and Red Hot Chill Peppers’ Chad Smith on drums.
The forthcoming album also features guest appearances from Guns ‘N’ Roses guitarist Slash, Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello, US hip hop superstar Post Malone and fellow music icon Elton John, who duets with Ozzy on the emotionally charged title track.
Ozzy says of the collaboration: “When I was writing Ordinary Man it reminded me of an old Elton song and I said to Sharon, ‘I wonder if he would sing on it?’ We asked and lo and behold, he agreed and sings and plays the piano on the song”.
From his early days as the frontman of the Birmingham metal pioneers Black Sabbath to carving out a hugely successful solo career, Ozzy Osbourne is a true icon of music.
Often referred to as the Godfather of Metal, he’s sold over 100 million records across the globe and won multiple awards, including being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Ozzy, alongside his storied musical career, is synonymous for his chaotic antics, painting him as one of the most infamous characters in music.
In 2004, a whole new audience was introduced to the famed singer when MTV aired the reality show The Osbournes, chronicling the lives of Ozzy, his longstanding wife and manager Sharon, and their children Kelly and Jack.
This autumn, after over 50 years playing live and equally as many in the limelight, Ozzy will hit the road for his final UK tour.
