OZZY OSBOURNE MEMOIR COMING AT LAST
June 18, 2009
The long-awaited memoir from rock veteran Ozzy Osbourne will be published by Sphere this autumn in the UK. I Am Ozzy will come out on 1st October, with Osbourne visiting the UK on publication for a week of publicity and two book signings.
Antonia Hodgson, publisher of the commercial division at Little, Brown, said the book was “fantastic, very much in the tone of his voice, very funny and a very full story.” The cover shoot for the book is being held today (17th June). Hodgson said the publisher was in discussions over a US edition.
Hodgson signed up separate autobiographies from Osbourne and his wife Sharon in 2005, with Ozzy’s autobiography originally scheduled for publication in autumn 2007.
Sharon Osbourne’s first autobiography, Extreme: My Autobiography, was a number one bestseller in 2005. She has since published a second volume.
