Early Life Of Ozzy Osbourne
Ozzy was born in Birmingham, England. Both his parents worked very hard to bring up their children. Ozzy is known as a rebel and he got that attitude from his mother. His mother was a catholic but according to the singer she was not religious. They lived in a really small two bed room apartment; Ozzy had other siblings too, so it was hard for the family to live all together in such a small space.
Surprisingly the nickname Ozzy was given to him while in school.
Ozzy suffered from Dyslexia as a kid, so school life was not easy for him. Ozzy however showed great talent when it comes to participating in drama and other extracurricular activities. He used to listen to a lot of songs while at high school and he developed a liking for one of the greatest bands of all time Beatles. Later in his interviews Ozzy admitted that one of the reason he became a musician is because of that band.
Guitarist Geezer Butler started a band and asked Ozzy to join the band as lead vocalist. He joined but quit some time later. He later reunited with some band members and decided to form his own band. They named the band Earth, but there was another band with the same name, so they had to change the name of the band. They named it Black Sabbath after the film. It was 1969 and Ozzy was not that big of a name as he is today, Ozzy Osbourne net worth was not started to build. Black Sabbath was signed up with Warner Brother Records. Even though Warner Brothers did not invest a lot of money for the band, the band Black Sabbath became a craze.

But later on rejoined the band and again started recording songs with the band. But this time critics did not love their songs that much. So the band parted ways for good.
After that Ozzy started a solo career and found even greater success. One of songs was leveled as one of the all time great by Rolling Stone magazine.

His wife Sharon Osbourne once told in an interview that they have properties in England which are so big that it goes up to the forest, as result their place is a resting ground for lots of exotic animals.
