I AM OZZY AUTOBIOGRAPHY PISSES ON U.S. BOOKSHELVES TODAY

100

Ozzy Osbourne gets plenty of crap around here at the Mansion – much of it deserved, some not so much. Regardless of the punching bag the Ozz-man has become over the last decade, there is no denying he is the epitome of a metal legend.

He’s also one funny motherfucker!

Now it’s time to learn even more about the Prince of Darkness from his own garbled mouth in his first autobiography, I Am Ozzy, which hits U.S. shelves today. The book was released in the U.K. in 2009.

I have not received a copy of the frog hopper’s tell-all just yet, so no review. But if you want to take a peek for yourself, be sure to head over here and sample nearly 40 pages for free.

Listen to a really silly audio excerpt here. They’ve hired some other bloke to voice act for Ozzy and it just doesn’t fly. When you think of Ozzy you just can’t help but hear those slurred words that only he can string together.

By the time this gets posted, Ozzy will have already been on The Today Show. He is expected to return to the same program with his wife and testicle-holder Sharon Osbourne on Wednesday. No doubt, some NBC/Celebrity Apprentice incestuous synergy going on there.

Even cooler is that Ozzy will be conducting a book tour to support his stab at Frank McCourtisms. Here are the tour dates according to Ozzy.com which include two appearances tonight:
