Ozzy Osbourne

Ozzy Osbourne formed pioneering heavy metal band Black Sabbath in 1968 with Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward. When the band reformed - minus Ward - in 2013, a new album 13 reached number one in more than 50 countries, while a world tour earned the band £45m. Ozzy found worldwide mainstream fame in 2002 when reality MTV show The Osbournes filmed the day-to-day gongs on in the Aston-born rock star's home with his wife Sharon and children Jack and Kelly.
