Modern Fix


back to DVD reviews home Artist: Ozzy Osbourne Title: Crown Prince of Darkness Label: Chrome Dreams / MVD

This is an unauthorized biography of Ozzy’s career, so it contains no music. However, it does contain much that is revealing about this powerful persona in heavy metal. Mostly through the interviews of a journalist and two authors on Ozzy books, we learn about Ozzy’s crimes and misdemeanors, his highs and lows and his rather unexpected current acceptability. For instance we find out things popularly known about Ozzy, say urinating on the Alamo, biting the head off a bat or wearing a dress to a photo shoot, but also the events of that time or that day that led up to those events.
