“Ask Dr. Ozzy” book due in 2011

Seemingly nothing can stop Ozzy. reports that Sphere – an imprint of Little, Brown - has acquired the rights to a new book from legendary rocker Ozzy Osbourne.

Little, Brown editor-in-chief Antonia Hodgson acquired world rights for "Ask Dr. Ozzy" from Sharon Osbourne, with Ben Greenberg at Grand Central Publishing publishing in the US.

“Ask Dr Ozzy” - written with “I Am Ozzy” co-writer Chris Ayres - is a spin-off from Osbourne’s ongoing Sunday Times column in which he offers medical advice.

The book will "tell incredible survival stories not found in his memoir, offer advice that no human should follow, and shed light on his seemingly superhuman ability to keep breathing."

Superhuman is right.

Back in October, new broke that the results were in from Ozzy’s DNA tests, which concluded he was part caveman.

One of the first people in the world to have tests to unravel his DNA, Ozzy had his tested by scientists, who were able to unlock his genetic code, or genome.

According to London’s Daily Mail, scientists took samples of the singer’s blood at his home in Buckinghamshire earlier this year and had it processed at a New Jersey lab, using a state-of-the-art test.

The results confirmed that Ozzy is a descendant of a Neanderthal man. “That won’t come as much of a surprise to the missus, or various police departments around the world,” joked Osbourne. “This is big news for blokes everywhere, if the Neanderthals could get laid, there’s hope for us all.”
