For more than five decades Ozzy Osbourne has personified rock rebellion. He’s had many lives, always landing on his feet and propelling himself toward greater success– almost dying several times along the way. A&E’s Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne follows his journey from a poor childhood and time spent in prison to fronting metal band Black Sabbath and successful solo career to role as rock’s elder statesman and lovable 21st century TV dad. As Ozzy turns 70, he reveals intimate details of his successes, failures and unique ability for survival and reinvention. Features interviews with Sharon Osbourne, Rick Rubin, Ice-T, Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie, Jonathan Davis and Post Malone.
