I’m a huge Ozzy and Black Sabbath fan, so when Jack Osbourne called me about doing the poster for a film he was working on about his dad, I was psyched to potentially contribute to the project. I watched a rough cut of “God Bless Ozzy Osbourne” and I was very impressed with how the film balanced its examination of Ozzy’s musical legacy and personal life. Sometimes it’s better not to know too much about your heroes, but this film gave me even more respect for Ozzy’s resilience in the face of various struggles.
I’m amazed and amused that after hesitantly abandoning my punk rock orthodoxy in the 80’s to say to my punk friends “Black Sabbath and Motorhead rock… and they are great to skate to!” that 25 years later I’m able to contribute to Ozzy’s legacy. Thanks Jack.
The film is screening on Monday August 29, 2011. Click here for a list of participating theaters.
