Ozzy Osbourne previews Nine Lives documentary

Ozzy Osbourne is sharing a video preview of his forthcoming documentary, “The Nine Lives Of Ozzy Osbourne”, ahead of its broadcast premiere Monday, September 7 at 9 PM (ET/PT) on A&E.

The project traces Ozzy's life from his childhood in poverty and time in prison, to making a name as frontman for UK metal icons Black Sabbath and launching a successful solo career, to extending his profile as one of rock's elder statesman and a reality TV dad.

The two-hour documentary explores how Ozzy has continually reinvented himself and his career to propel himself toward greater success. As the Grammy-winning artist turns 70, he reflects on the intimate details of his successes, failures, and his unique ability for survival and perseverance-including never-before-seen interviews about his recent Parkinson's diagnosis.

The documentary, a selection of the 2020 SXSW Film Festival, also features interviews with Sharon, Kelly and Jack Osbourne as well as friends and fellow musicians including Rick Rubin, Ice-T, Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie, Jonathan Davis, Post Malone and more.

Osbourne issued his twelfth studio record, “Ordinary Man”, earlier this year; produced by guitarist Andrew Watt, the set was recorded with the rhythm section of Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and featured special guest appearances by Slash, Elton John and Tom Morello.

Osbourne has recently regrouped with Watt to work on a follow-up album.
