Ozzy Osbourne: Trust Me, I’m Dr. Ozzy book update

Ozzy Osbourne’s team have passed along an update on the rock legend’s forthcoming book, “Trust Me, I’m Dr. Ozzy.”

Due out October 11, “Trust Me, I’m Dr. Ozzy: Advice From Rock’s Ultimate Survivor,” is based on Ozzy’s ongoing, Rolling Stone (U.S.) and Sunday Times (U.K.) columns. The book will include some of the best material from the columns, as well as survival stories not found in Ozzy’s memoir (“I Am Ozzy”), his answers to celebrities’ medical questions, charts and sidebars, and much more.

The publishers describe the book as 100% Ozzy - part memoir and part advice column, delivered with Ozzy’s famous wit and humor. Comprised of reader-submitted medical and lifestyle questions, Ozzy digs deep into his murky past, searching for pearls of "wisdom."

The genesis of the Dr. Ozzy columns began last year, when the wild man decided to have his DNA mapped to determine if science could perhaps explain how he survived his nearly four decade avalanche of drugs and alcohol. The “Full Ozzy Genome” contained variants that scientists had never before encountered. In fact, the findings made headlines around the world and even led to Ozzy hosting a prestigious TED conference.

“Trust Me, I’m Dr. Ozzy” is the follow-up to 2010’s New York Times bestselling memoir “I Am Ozzy,” which landed at #2 and #3 on the New York Times and Wall Street Journal non-fiction charts, respectively.

Ozzy recently wrapped up his “Scream” tour and is now rumored to be working behind closed doors with Black Sabbath on a possible new album and tour for 2012.
