Ozzy Osbourne announces Dr. Ozzy book-signing tour

Turn your head and scream…the Doctor is IN.

That’s likely true if your Doctor is Ozzy Osbourne, heavy metal pioneer, reality-show pioneer and now, resident health advisor for Rolling Stone (U.S.) and the Sunday Times (U.K.).

Inspired by creating material for both media outlets, Osbourne is gearing up to release his new book, "Trust Me, I'm Dr. Ozzy," on October 11.

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.

To help launch the project, Ozzy will be doing a round of in-store book-signing events next month, at least on the US West coast.
