Sharon Saved Ozzy's Life

(Gibson) Mike Fleiss, who co-directed the new documentary God Bless Ozzy Osbourne (produced by Ozzy's son Jack), recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the movie. Fleiss spoke about how the film is more about Ozzy the man than Ozzy the larger-than-life rocker.

"Ozzy's life is not all glamour and sold-out concerts and the rock star existence," he said. "He's lived a [expletive] hard, sometimes terrible existence. And the fact that he's still doing it, still up there rocking, it's a miracle. One of my favorite pieces in the movie is when the newscaster says, 'How is Ozzy Osbourne still alive?' To me, that's sort of the thesis of the whole movie in a weird way. It's like, 'How is he still alive?'"

Fleiss went on to answer his own question. "Sharon [Osbourne, his wife] saved his life, clearly," he said. "And I think he's just one of those rugged British gentlemen, you know. He's got a hell of a constitution. You can't really [expletive] him up too bad. The fact that he can still go out and play two-hour rock concerts is incredible… there's this 62-year-old man out there, jumping around, doing his little frog dance, and singing these incredibly challenging vocal lines for nearly two hours. I've got the utmost respect for him." more on this story
